“It’s Complicated”

Filed under: Media Bias

The Democrat Media Operation known as ‘Politico’ wants its readers to know that the $17 Million Taxpayer Fund that congressmen have been using to payout sexual harassment and discrimination claims… actually isn’t a big deal. You see, “it’s complicated.”

But the reality of what critics lambaste as a sexual harassment “slush fund” is more complicated, like much about Congress’ policy for handling harassment complaints. The money covers all sorts of settlements, just not for sexual harassment, and some lawmakers cut their own side deals with accusers.

 
What this tells me is that the payoffs for sexual misconduct were primarily on the Democrat side. The Democrat Media Complex has a pattern of simplifying scandals that hurt Republicans into tight soundbites, but working overtime to make Democrat scandals mundane, complicated, and products of Republican conspiracies. “Donald Trump colluded with Russia!” versus “Republicans attacked Hillary Clinton for alleged use of a private email server while Secretary of State.”

  2. #1 – So, al-Cray-da, have you apologized yet for raping our fellow commenter? Or are you still on the prowl for teenage boys?

    Regards,

  3. Hi V the K,
    Yep, it probably is complicated. Hopefully now, Republicans will provide a transparent process for Congressional sexual harassment/assault complaints to be handled in house that will be a model for the country to follow. They have had a few years controlling Congress to really think about it and now is the time to get to it.

  4. The MSM will see no point in reporting on the slush fund, since it’s “complicated,” and we rednecks in flyover country would not be able to grasp it anyway.

  5. Hey look, CCP is becoming a small-government conservative!

    It’s funny how people favor large-government intrusion into every nook and cranny – unless it’s the other party in which case it becomes an outrage.

    As I’ve pointed out before, a big problem with politics is that politicians have so much to sell. I suspect, as Politico might say, “it’s complicated”: the rules/regulations/laws covering this speck of the economy are complex and influenced by well-paid lobbyists.

    I have a solution for this slush fund: kill it. Let congress-critters pay their own way (or, at least, make its deals public seeing as how it’s our money).

    How people are so willing to cede so much power to politicians, knowing what we’ve known forever plus what we’re learning lately is something I cannot figure out. Could it be that We The People really do get the gov’t we deserve? These people don’t appoint themselves.

    @3: The congress-critters have had a few years to figure out healthcare reform and we see how that went. A pox on both sides.

  6. Hi KCRob,
    Well there will be a pox on one side when millions have to get off health insurance … 🙁
    Happy Thanksgiving to you, V the K, and all commenters!

  7. Why is that, Cas?

    Are you and your fellow liberals who screamed that you were willing to “pay more in taxes” for their health insurance suddenly unwilling to pay for it now when it comes directly out of your pockets?

    Just like the usual parade of Democrat millionaires who want to be taxed more, but who refuse to stop taking deductions or actually pay more themselves. It’s because their screaming about “the poor” is just a smokescreen for the reality that THEY want on the gravy train.

  8. Well there will be a pox on one side when millions have to get off health insurance

    That would be the millions who are being gouged by the IRS to pay the healthcare “tax” and accept deductibles the size of an new car in order to not get health care unless they are brought down by medical bills.

    Let me make that clearer for Cas.

    Millions have been pushed into paying $6,000 – $10,000 for health insurance that has a $20,000 deductible before it kicks in.

    Millions have been given the subsidized option (which is due to expire in 2018) of paying a $2700 fine to the IRS and skating without health insurance of any kind.

    The (choose your number) 18 million – 28 million – 45 million who didn’t have health care before Obamacare didn’t get it because of Obamacare.

    The Obamacare administration waived the rules of Medicaid and poured as many “applicants” of waivers into that existing program driving its enrollment through the roof with no additional funding.

    Also, the clever Obamacare mafia transferred huge subsidies to the insurance companies in order to get them to play along. Meanwhile, the insurers looked at the numbers, took the subsidies and quit the markets that were not profitable.

    The whole scheme was designed by felon Robert Creamer when he was in prison in Illinois for being a caught Democrat hack and manipulator. The idea was pure Cloward and Piven: bankrupt the whole medical economy and force single payer (government) medical care on the sheeple. The elite could still use their millions for elite, celebrity private care.

    Now here is the rub.

    Socialism has to work properly and sustainably for 100 years before it can be declared a success. The system is totally based on the redistribution of services and goods by taxing away “excess” income and spending it efficiently on goods and services for the remaining masses. The unknown is the point at which the “excess” income population settles for government cradle to grave care and drop out of the tax target group.

    Cas and its ilk see health care as an inalienable right, but pretend that organ transplants are limitless and that it is OK to get so obese that your house has to be fitted with a fork lift and the medical care bus will come when called.

    Utopians always believe the unicorn’s horn shoots sparkles and rainbows spew from its butt. If the perfect ideal does not take place, it is because tinkering and more money is needed.

    So, Cas says there will be POX on the Repugnants if they allow the Obama subsidies to expire and the whole Obamacare house of cards comes tumbling down.

    Really? The pissed off people who put Trump in office will turn on him because Obamacare collapsed and was exposed for the the sham that it always was? Who was it who repeatedly said: “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” and “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan” and “Obamacare will save the average person $2,500 a year”?

    The DemonizingRats have just one chance: Get control of one house of Congress and lie, cheat and squeal about how the Obamacare Unicorn has been fondled, molested and raped by the Repugnants.

    Their best chance is to grab the Senate and nuke the filibuster and cram every vote into the simple majority rule. After all, that is what Reid did and what the DemonizingRats most fear that Mitch the Turtle will do.

    Cas has no concept to argue, no principle to espouse, no facts to lay out.

    Cas the “it” is pure Mein Kampf:

    “In this they proceeded on the sound principle that the magnitude of a lie always contains a certain factor of credibility, since the great masses of the people in the very bottom of their hearts tend to be corrupted rather than consciously and purposely evil, and that, therefore, in view of the primitive simplicity of their minds, they more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a little one, since they themselves lie in little things, but would be ashamed of lies that were too big. Such a falsehood will never enter their heads, and they will not be able to believe in the possibility of such monstrous effrontery and infamous misrepresentation in others.…” (p. 231 of the Manheim translation)
