‘CASE CLOSED SIGN ME UP’! Ezra Klein argues ‘for single-payer, in one graphic’ [pic]

http://twitter.com/#!/Oh_Kitty_O/status/453895483660836865

Ezra Klein loves him some single-payer health care! And this morning, he made a rock-solid case for it.

Behold:

Whoa. Whoa. We have seen the light!

What you’re witnessing here, ladies and gentlemen, is real journalism:

What happened was that he was always destined to be a shameless hack.

Seriously, Ezra. Now we want to see more graphics. And don’t limit yourself to Canada. There are lots more countries out there!

Here’s another graphic that we think’d be helpful:

But that’s just crazy talk! Right, Ezra?

Bam! Sen. Mike Lee nails Obamacare with bumper sticker-worthy quote

http://twitter.com/#!/cpdavis4/status/428378392317423616

Heh.

Twitter users were buzzing about “inequality Godzilla” on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

http://twitter.com/#!/The_real_MattS/status/428560599824728065

So do we! But what is “inequality Godzilla” and how did it come about?

http://twitter.com/#!/SenMikeLee/status/428411075084972032

Bam! Sen. Lee always cuts right to the chase with no craven equivocating. His Tea Party response to President Obama’s State of the Union Address was no exception and is a must-watch:

http://twitter.com/#!/charliespiering/status/428374068904341504

Bingo. No caving! Americans can count on Sen. Lee to stand strong with a firm spine.

http://twitter.com/#!/SenMikeLee/status/428380733334634496

You can read the whole text here (and you really must), but here is a quick fist pump-inducing snippet:

And of course, Obamacare – all by itself – is an inequality Godzilla that has robbed working families of their insurance, their doctors, their wages and their jobs. Many Americans are now seeing why some of us fought so hard to stop this train-wreck over the last four years.

Government-driven inequality is the reason why, as hard-working families across the country struggle to make ends meet, six of the ten wealthiest counties in America are now suburbs of Washington, D.C.

Throughout the last five years, President Obama has promised an economy for the middle class; but all he’s delivered is an economy for the middle-men.

And tonight his party cheered as he asked for more of the same, as if the solution to inequality were … well … more inequality.

Dead-on, sir! Twitchy founder Michelle Malkin offers an excellent idea:

http://twitter.com/#!/michellemalkin/status/428375552777400320

Make. It. Happen.

Citizens heaped praise on Lee:

Amen.

Breaking: Obamacare has ‘glitches’ that need to be addressed

The Democratic candidatesseemed surprised that the moderators of Saturday night’s debate would ask how they would address the country’s dramaticallyrising health care costs and insurance premiums almost as though they were suggesting that Obamacare was some kind ofdisaster. Hillary Clinton, citing her own failed attempts to nationalize health care, was willing to concede thatObamacare had its “glitches.”

Lance Bass journeys to WH to discuss Obamacare, pimps wrong website [pic]; Updated

http://twitter.com/#!/iowahawkblog/status/443806960517799937

It’s all good, yo. Reinforcements have arrived at the White House:

http://twitter.com/#!/LanceBass/status/443799283792633856

Too bad he’s not ‘N Sync (see what we did there?) with the right URL:

http://twitter.com/#!/michellemalkin/status/443809446020399104
http://twitter.com/#!/BrendanBuck/status/443802683506712576

Yeah, but …

http://twitter.com/#!/Matthops82/status/443801588285833216

We wouldn’t be surprised.

http://twitter.com/#!/redsteeze/status/443804054754701312

Hey, it happens.

http://twitter.com/#!/Rschrim/status/443800945831313408

He’s probably lost in Lance’s eyes, too. And who could blame him? Maybe Lance can use those dreamy eyes of his to get everything on the right track again. Or at least help us forget we’re in this mess:

Nah. We’re just as screwed as ever.

Way to get taken seriously, White House.

Update:

Bass has replaced his earlier tweet with this very special message:

http://twitter.com/#!/LanceBass/status/443820536662351872

Via TwitLonger:

“Grow up people! A handful of private citizens were invited to talk about Health Care. I have questions just like you- and I brought in several that my fans have brought up. I’m not writing any laws here. Don’t hate because I’m trying to get educated. And I friggin messed up the website! Ugh. It’s healthcare.gov !! RT @sheadizzle: When you are enlisting the help of @LanceBass for your healthcare program it might be a terrible program.”

Also, “brain fart”:

Another message from Bass:

http://twitter.com/#!/LanceBass/status/443851984752631808

Via Twitlonger:

. @michellemalkin Have you ever heard my views on HCR? Didn’t think so- I only advocate for my listeners to educate themselves about it and many other things. I’m a talk show host. I try to see both sides and see how I can bring people together. You probably didn’t know Dance Moms was my fav show either! See, we ARE similar!

That’s nice. Here’s another guy’s take:

http://twitter.com/#!/carmitch/status/443853060138221568

Yeah, not so much.

Here’s Malkin’s response:

http://twitter.com/#!/michellemalkin/status/443857025999437824

That’s good advice, Lance. Take it.
