    Latest reports are that he is recovering at the hospital. The shooter died.

    "We may have our differences, but we do well, in times like these, to remember that everyone who serves in our nation’s capital is here because, above all, they love our country" Quoted from comments regarding shooting.. This I just don't buy.

    fake news

    shot in the hip

    Early reports indicate he asked if they were republicans, that he's a Bernie supporter, hates Rush. Probably radicalized by leftists who are calling for blood (severed head, Julius Caesar trump assassination play) because they can't deal with the election of Trump.

    Scary, scary stuff. Hopefully Scalise and any other victims will make a full recovery.

    And the fact that you spend the entire time connecting this guy to the left, as opposed to worrying about the victim, says everything we need to know about you as a person. You are a grade A piece of shit.

    Yeah, with only a few rare exceptions, I am a pacifist. I have zero respect for anyone who resorts to unnecessary violence or anyone who incites violence. Nice try though.

    You are a sad little man.

    If you think you can take healthcare away from 24 million people without bullshit like this happening, I don't know what to tell you. This is only the beginning.

    Thanks Buzz Lightyear, and yet rhetoric like yours radicalized a man into domestic terrorism. You're a pig. Do you also have zero respect for Kathy Griffin, Bill Mahre, fake news of WaPo and NYT, Maxine Watters, etc... calling for impeachment before there's a crime? What's next for self-described "pacifists" such as yourself? You gonna burn something to the ground for attention? You gonna prevent free speech on college campuses? Probably beat the gun control drum to deflect attention away from the real villains (yourselves).

    Yeah, that's gotta be it. It can't be pussies like you saying that the world's falling apart because idiots like you lost an election can it? You reap what you sow so own it. This is only the beginning? Sounds like a threat. Are you trying to encourage the next domestic terrorist by giving them what you consider a valid excuse? Can you even hear yourself? This is all about the loss of an election where the democrats and other globalists (establishment GOP and all their big dollar business lobbyists) want to unseat the legally elected POTUS. You're a disgusting POS that's backing this power grab and using propaganda to incite violence as just another tool in the political playbook. SHAME!!!

    It's about the loss of an election to a party which abuses those in need. If they don't want shot at, they shouldn't try to take shit from people that would leave them in physical peril and mortal fear. I've been telling you this stuff was going to happen for months. Instead of calling your congressman and demanding they figure out a way to fix healthcare without losing one insured person, you ****ing reveled in it. Maybe it's on you? Think this guy isn't fed up with smiling douchebags supporting a bill that will surely kill people?

    I didn't shoot anyone. I didn't tell anyone to shoot anyone. I prefer arrests, trials, last meals, last words, and guillotines for powerful people who abuse the powerless--like any civilized person.

    But you shouldn't presume any level of safety for republicans right now, look at what the **** it is that they're trying to do.

    Again, not one word about the victims, but plenty of words attacking the other side of the aisle. You are a sick fuk.

    It is trailer trash like yourself that is ripping this country apart. Reasonable minds are not talking about today as a partisan issue. We are all Americans. The individual who got shot today was an American first and a Republican much further down the road. That doesn't matter to you though. Your goal in life is to demonize others for your shitty existence.

    You're not exactly mourning the victims on here yourself, AZ. It's a good point, but brad's not the one one.

    You are truly and evil person hiding behind healthcare as an excuse for this and predicting that it will happen again. Maybe instead of complaining about legislation you should take a stand against domestic terrorism because picking up arms against fellow Americans is not how we settle differences of opinion but you seem to disagree which is what makes you and those who sympathize with your POV traitors of the state.

    You don't know what matters to me until I tell you so don't put words in my mouth. I care about Scalise but I also care about tamping down the reason that this happened. There is no excuse for it but there are reasons why it happened. I believe the left has pumped up the vitriol in this country to the point that shots were fired today. Now to all Bernie supporters I don't want you to get the idea that I think you're all responsible for this because I have a lot of great friends who are Bernie supporters and I know that not all of you have fallen for this propaganda. But many of you have and this guy obviously did and if you keep pumping up the vitriolic rhetoric instead of accepting the outcome of the election then the more unhinged amongst you will pick up arms to defend what they've been propagandized to defend.

    You've spewed vitriolic propaganda which helped to radicalize this nut (you're part of the lefty political ecosphere) and now you're defending the violence and condoning future violence. That's evil dude. That's not how we solve our problems. That's what they do in third world countries where citizens don't respect the peaceful transition of power.

    Here's another question, let's say we had precognition and one of the people who will inevitably die because of the AHCA shoots at a congressional republican. Is he defending his life?

    Where in the constitution does it say you get to shoot me if I don't give you my money? Where does it say I have to help you do anything? Our agreement is that we all get to have the pursuit of happiness but that pursuit ends where you interfere with my happiness so FK off.

    It was never their medicine until they paid for it. Did they pay for it? No, I paid for it with my taxes that subsidized their coverage. BTW, AHCA hasn't been repealed or replaced because our lawmakers don't have an appetite for it.

    If you truly believe that are you willing to take responsibility for Giffords shooting, the Charleston Church shooting, Mosque burnings and Muslim beatings, the Jewish Center shooting, the Sikh shooting, etc?

    Let's say I bought enough land surrounding yours such that I could build something of an open top box. The walls would be so high you could never climb them, so deeply embedded you could never burrow out underneath them, so thick you could never get through them. There are no doors in or out. You have a couple days worth of food. Can you infringe upon my pursuit of happiness to have this monolithic structure on my land?

    My point is society rests on more than just the constitution. There are agreed upon behaviors, principles, and norms. A belief that all people have a right to miracles modern medicine and the fullest and healthiest time on earth possible is fast becoming one of those principles. There's always violent friction in these things. The present frowns upon the righteous but the future embraces them. Abolition. Democracy. Liberty.

    So yeah, it sucks that it's come to this, but it's probably not going to stop.

    This is what happens when Democrat leaders, Hollywood fools, late night talk show hosts, our liberal media and other clueless liberals are allowed to go open-season on
    Trump and Republicans in general. Ignorant Obama started the inflammatory rhetoric 8+ years ago and it has only escalated with Trump's presidency.
    Democrats think it's funny to talk about blowing up the White House, holding up a fake severed Trump head or countless other shameful things. Liberals like George Soros even hire thugs to beat up folks at Trump rallys, but funny that our media fails to even report on it.

    But of course if anyone dared to criticize Obama during his 8 years of disaster and corruption they were called every name in the book.
    Yes, this is what happens when liberals run amuck and it's sickening!
