If you ever wanted a perfect example of the Republican idea of just “getting by,” this is classic. Instead of solving problems, they mentally minimize them, so they think they are not that important. This is the reason the economy tanked, recovery is almost impossible because free marketers allowed jobs to move over seas, and planning ahead means winning their next election.
You will love this. It kind of reminds me of the time Bush claimed we all have health care, and I’m paraphrasing, because we can just “go to the emergency room.”
Earlier today, several female Republican House members held a press conference today to attack President Obama’s push for health insurance reform. “The Democrat way is not reforming healthcare, it’s destroying it,” announced Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN).
Perhaps the most attention-grabbing moment occurred when Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) announced that “there are no Americans who don’t have healthcare“:
Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.) disputes President Obama’s claim that 47 million Americans lack healthcare. “There are no Americans who don’t have healthcare. Everybody in this country has access to healthcare,” she says.
I did manage to get the video documentation of this lunacy.
See, no problem.
