Another RCOB Moment

I got this from Gunslinger's Journal:

Neither Waxman or Stupak -- who betrayed the pro-life community by negotiating for more than a week with the White House to ensure his vote on the health care bill -- had anything more than a cursory understanding of how the many sections of the bill would impact business or even individual citizens before they voted on the bill, says House Energy Democrat staff. "We had memos on these issues, but none of our people, we think, looked at them," says a staffer. "When they saw the stories last week about the charges some of the companies were taking, they were genuinely surprised and assumed that the companies were just doing this to embarrass them. They really believed this bill would immediately lower costs. They just didn't understand what they were voting on."

What is it we pay these guys for again?

Are you kidding me? They didn't even LOOK at the memos? Hell they couldn't get a staffer to read the synopsis of the abomination before the vote?

Sounds like someone just committed political Seppuku.

One can only hope Moose, but then again I doubt there is even the slightest shred of honor in the whole pack of them. If there were, they would have thrown themselves on their swords a long time ago.

November can't come soon enough. Fire these lousy R-words! (just trying out the new politically correct phrases)

Most countries institutionalize their mentally deficient. We elect them to Congress.
Thanks for dropping by!
