Listening to the Republicans rant about health care on the Senate floor. Mike Enzi cites Howard Dean, which puts him in the same “useful idiot” category as David Broder and the editors of the Washington Post.
All the Republicans seem to agree on two things:
1. Heath care spending must be cut.
2. Anything that actually reduces spending necessarily hurts either providers or consumers, and is therefore an evil Democrat scheme.
It’s also astounding to hear Republicans complaining about not being able to spend Christmas with their families, when all they have to do to get home is STFU and let the majority vote.
