Really, Sen. John Thune? Really?

Really, Sen. John Thune? Really? June 9, 2015

As the Supreme Court prepares to issue a ruling in the case where conservatives are trying to kill the subsidies for health insurance purchases through the federal health care exchanges, Sen. John Thune (R-South Dakota) tweeted one of the most jaw-dropping bits of dishonesty you’ll ever see:

Wait, what? Those six million people are only at risk of losing their health care subsidies because of you and your fellow Republicans, Sen. Thune. When Twitter users rightly hammered him for this astonishingly disingenuous statement and told him that Republicans could fix that problem with a single line change in the law even if the Supreme Court rules in his favor, Thune replied:

And my former colleague Dave Weigel pointed out the obvious:

The chutzpah of these people is amazing. “Hey, we’re gonna kill this subsidy that will eliminate health care for six million people, then we’re going to blame you for the failure of the bill to get health insurance for those six million people.” In related news, why are you hitting yourself? Come on, why are you hitting yourself? It’s like they’re 9 years old.
