Another guest post is by our pal and regular TPC contributor, David Garber:
The Warm and Fuzzy GOP
Health care reform is dead. Let’s face it. The Republicans are trying to establish a system to ensure that no taxpayer money goes to pay for health care for people here illegally.
“So let’s solve that — just not treat them,” said a distinguished southern gentleman member of the House. ”Let ‘em die in the streets for all we care. They’re illegals. They’re not our responsibility.” A House member saying that? House of Horrors is more like it.
The GOP also stripped the bill of equal protection by removing an amendment to allow for same sex couples to be treated as family. Another Republican House member said, “Good, we don’t need any more disease than we already got.” Seems health care is a big GOP issue… even if their take on it is bigoted, crude and senseless.
The Senate Judiciary committee bill is recommending creation of a 13-year path to citizenship for the 11 million people already here illegally. Another elected Republican said they chose 13 to appease the Jews in the House — jokingly equating it to “a Bar Mitzvah for illegals.” This quotable soul wasn’t Rep. Cantor, but you get two more guesses. You can start by saying “Way to go, Mr. ‘Boo-hoo my eyes out’ Boehner.
Wow, that’s some open minded group you’re leading there. Slamming and slurring immigrants and Jews at the same time is your party’s solution to the problem?
What, not enough time to talk it over but you have enough time to vote to repeal the Affordable Health Care Act on 36 occasions? Priorities, Mr. Speaker. And I don’t mean priority tee times at the golf course.
Gotta love the Republican leadership — warm and sensitive, like iced sand paper.
