This shutdown isn’t about our budget, or deficits. …This shutdown is about rolling back our efforts to provide health insurance to those who don’t have it. …I know it’s strange that one party has made it a central part of their campaign.

PRESIDENT OBAMA, in remarks delivered at the White House (via rabbleprochoice)

Obama’s one-liners during his speech at the White House Correspondents Dinner. 

To everyone who stood on line for hours — in the cold, in the warm, in the whatever — who didn’t walk away in frustration, who didn’t declare that it wasn’t worth it, who didn’t give up. To everyone who voted — THANK YOU.
I am very worried. and very scared. Since Obama is taking NY, can he please just be the President here at least?

Between this, voter ID chaos, and possible unreported voter purges, are we reaching “Pennsylvania goddamn!” territory?

The debate, summarized.

Mitt has women in binders & lets them go home early to cook for their husbands. also, people should marry before they have babies otherwise there will be gun violence. Obama reminded people about the 47% and then dropped the mic & got out of the joint.

 

I’m just sayin’

Mitt, you have the luxury of being able to pay for the benefits you want. That’s why you want to choose your own health care plan. Lots of people have to choose the cheapest one and can barely afford that.
