This is a pretty potent combination of chutzpah and nonsense:
Obama, though, has shown some willingness to budge on the inclusion of a government-run insurance plan. But Republicans like Alexander are expressing concern that Democrats will ultimately throw up their hands in the effort to seek a bipartisan compromise and tap their majorities.
“Thumbing their nose at the American people by ramming through a partisan bill would be the same thing as going to war without asking Congress’ permission,” he said. “You might technically be able to do it, but you’d pay a terrible price in the next election.”
Let’s see if we can all follow along at home. According to Lamar Alexander, if both houses of Congress, filled with Representatives and Senators elected by the people, pass a bill and the President, also elected by the people in a landslide, then signs it, it is exactly the same as if both houses have no say whatsoever. Also, one is a war. The other is a health care bill. Additionally, even his follow-up is nonsense, because the Republicans GAINED seats in 2004.
I know it is hard to keep up with all of the nonsense, but at what point are journalists going to look at one of these clowns when they say something like this and ask them, point blank- “What the fuck are you talking about?”
Now of course, this was on Fox News, so of course no one would challenge him there. But they say shit like this all the time and John King and the rest of these idiots treat them like they are serious.
I just can’t keep up with all the nonsense and bullshit they peddle.
