Could this be more of a blatant attempt to get himself on the rocket sled to the unemployment line in his district? (followed shortly by an ass whoopin' while standing in line).

From Joe Scarborough's interview on 8/19/2009...

Scarborough: It sounds like you’re saying you think there is no need for us to have private insurance in health care.

Weiner: I’ve asked you three times. What is their value? What are they bringing to the deal?

S: Again… I’m astounded by your question. It sounds like you’re suggesting that there’s no need to have a country that’s run on free market principles.

W: Time out. Let’s focus on one thing at a time. This isn’t a commodity, Joe. Health care isn’t a commodity.

S: You’re saying that health care is different than everything else.

W: Health care is not a commodity.

S: But you are making the conservatives’ point. You are making the point of the people at the town hall meetings who say this is Barack Obama’s opportunity
to get rid of private health care and turn it completely over to the government. I’m sitting here stunned, saying Oh My God, you’re making the point of the health care protesters.

W: If Barack Obama doesn’t want to do it, I want to do it.

They told us all along what they were going to do....

OMG, this guy is such a wing nut. Medicare and medicaid don't pay their bills. And really the VA is in trouble, can't even treat a torn ACL. Tricare, people should be ashamed of the military and veteran healthcare standards. They are not about setting and meeting the gold standards in health care. What a bunch of tripe. The people who elected this guy deserve to get what they voted for.
