So this is what it has come to, Republicans using a fake memo of Democrat Talking Points to derail Health Care Reform (HCR). This fake memo details what Democrats should talk about and focus on while giving interviews or making appearances concerning HCR. The memo attempts to protrait Democrats as liars who are trying to dupe Americans into supporting HCR.
Republicans at this point are desperate and they are beginning to realize the mistake they made in not being part of what will be history. After a year of obstruction Republicans have gained nothing; and leading up to the vote to pass the Senate version of HCR they have resorted to fake memos.
Desperate times calls for desperate measures and that was clearly evident when Representative Scott Garret (R-NJ) read the fake memo on the floor of the House of Representatives. Big mistake Rep Garret, did he really think his little show was going to be unchallenged (should have read my post Takeover Thursdays – Anthony Weiner). He must have been absent earlier this year when Rep Anthony Weiner from NY ripped Republicans for their phony ways. In front of everyone Weiner called out Garret and asked him to produce the source of the document, Garret was quiet.
If HCR is so bad for the people you shouldn’t have to lie to show that!
Check out the video of Rep Weiner doing what he does best:
If there is something to be said, “Its On Broadway” to step up and say it!!!
It’s not the first time; it won’t be the last. But at least we have Rep. Weiner hitting back. Where are the other Democrats while this was going on?
Great question, this is something that has been asked for a couple of weeks now. Where are the senior members of Congress why are they not on the Sunday talk shows pushing HCR? Some are saying that since their ratings are so low it’s best for them to be quiet and let the President take the lead on this one.
Lol. That is weak on their part. Sad they want to take that route instead of providing solutions. But we know why that is.
