First up, Senator Angus King of Maine (an alleged Independent who just happens to vote in lockstep with the senate Democrats), claiming “There is no such thing as Obamacare.”
“There is no such thing as Obamacare. You can’t sign up for Obamacare. You sign up for an Anthem policy or an Aetna policy or a WellPoint policy. It’s private insurance.“
“This is not the Massive Socialist Failure You’re Looking For,” (waves hand).
You can bet if it were working, they’d be calling it Obamacare.
“We heard about the evils of ObamaCare, about the lives it’s ruining in Republicans’ stump speeches and in ads paid for by oil magnates, the Koch brothers. But in those tales, turned out to be just that: tales, stories made up from whole cloth, lies distorted by the Republicans to grab headlines or make political advertisements.” – Senator Harry Reid, February 2014
“Mr. President, the junior Senator from Wyoming has come to the floor several times recently talking about the fact that examples that he and other Republicans have given, dealing with ObamaCare, examples that they think are bad, I’ve called lies. Mr. President, that is simply untrue. I have never come to the floor, to my recollection, and I never said a word about any of the examples that Republicans have given regarding ObamaCare and how it’s not very good.” –
Senator Harry Reid, March 2014
Thank you, Nevada, for sending the rest of the country this gift. Thank you, oh so bloody much. Now, exactly when did you guys start hating the rest of America as much as Massachusetts does?
