Congressman Weiner cannot answer health care question

Here’s a great video segment from Bill O’Reilly this week – and how ridiculous one Democrat Congressman Anthony Weiner from New York just dodges a simple question about the new health care bill.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the whole thing could have been handled in a civil manner? It would suck for Faux News ratings, because who wants to see a calm discussion when you can holler, scream and cry like a baby?

Where was this uproar when President Geo. W. Bush’s Medicare Drug Benefit bill was passed despite it being a $1.2 trillion government takeover of health care? Hmmm. Let’s see. Let’s go back to 2003. A Republican in the White House. A Republican majority in the House. A 50 – 49 – 1 Republican Majority in the Senate (with the ever-present stink of formaldehyde hanging over the chamber with Cheney around for any tie-breakers). An incredibly costly government-controlled health care program — the Medicare Drug Benefit — is offered by Dubya. On its fateful day in the House, Speaker Hastert and Whip Delay keep the House vote open until 5:00 am when it’s effin’ obvious that the Bill won’t pass. Then, like whores looking for their fifth john of the night, Hastert and Delay sought to convince dissenting Republicans to switch their vote. Representative Nick “Nikki 6” Smith (R-MI) was offered campaign funds for his son, who was running to replace him, in return for a change in his vote from “nay” to “yea”. Later — get this — to dispell the controversy, Smith said no explicit offer of campaign funds was made, but that that he was offered “substantial and aggressive campaign support” which he had assumed included financial support. Dang, that is smooth. At around 5:50 a.m., Delay convinced other republicans to switch their votes. The bill passed 220-215. The Bill was signed into law by Prez W in December. Where was the Republican uproar? Where was Glen Beck… Read more »

Any clip with Bachmann or Beck is out of context because they’re both lunatics.

Beck’s latest stunt is that he thinks that Obama is trying to have him killed. Glen Beck is surprisingly elusive. Who’d have thunk it? A soft and pudgy, blubbery shock-jock is like some kind of ninja who can evade CIA assassins!

411, the second video with Bachman was linked somewhat out of context. It was really an interesting full segment on Beck. What isn’t important isn’t really that it’s on Glenn Beck’s show, but rather the primary guest.

That guest was current treasurer of Massachusetts, which has had UHC for its residents for a few years now in what was called by some “the PILOT Program.” Without federal bailout money, it would have been a disaster for the state budget and caused the state to, “not be able to provide even basic [medical] services to our residents.”

It’s amazing to me that when we have a similar deal on a state-level scale that no one talks about until a couple days before this bill is signed. But given how politicians are all about upholding their ideals rather than listening to people, I can’t say I’m surprised.

So, let me get this straight – you think Michelle Bachman, Glenn Beck, and Bill O’Reilly are making sense on health care, and you are calling someone else ridiculous?
