I can’t keep this in any longer.
President Obama: “I’m open to new ideas (or other ideas) but will not listen to anyone who doesn’t want a public option.” That’s not an exact quote, but he’s said both of those things recently. What the hell? then you’re not really open to other ideas, are you?
Some Democrat in Congress: “We want to reach a concensus with Republicans, but ultimately if they can’t get on board with our plan, we’ll proceed without them.” So this means: we want it to appear as though we’re trying to work with those who disagree with us, but we know we dont’ need them, so we’re not trying too hard. To us, “compromise” means that they compromise their ideals to come to our side.”
Plus, um, in fact I believe the current health care bill DOES provide coverage for illegals. So, well, he was lying.
I also just wanted to note this quote for future reference:
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who spoke to FOX News before learning who delivered the yell, said she didn’t intend to move to sanction anyone for it.” http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/09/09/congressman-yells-lie-obama-speech/
