House votes to repeal ObamaCare – Some members double down on stupid
Posted by iusbvision on January 19, 2011
The vote was 245-189. Three Democrats (McIntyre, Ross, Boren) crossed party lines to support passage. In the past when the elite media got one Republican to vote with the Democrats big government, big spending, or corrupt regulations to pick winners and losers they would say that it enjoyed bi-partisan support. So now we can say that both parties want O-Care repealed!!
John Lewis was asked the inconvenient question: What part of the Constitution authorizes the government to pass an individual mandate? The only thing I can say after this incredibly wrong headed and vapid answer is that it is time to retire…. wow.
The 14th Amendment has nothing to do with this, and excessive government regulation, taxation and bureaucracy was a complaint in the Declaration of Independence as a VIOLATION of the pursuit of happiness.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
Lewis compared John McCain to ultra-racist George Wallace in October 2008.
UPDATE: Our friend Lee Doren posted a great rant on this nonsense. Definitely a fun listen!
