Just Do It

If I were still a member of Congress, I would proudly vote for the bill that President Barack Obama is championing and I would urge my colleagues to do the same, not because I don’t believe in fiscal discipline, but because I do.

Easy for this guy to say, he’s not there anymore. But yeah, these Republicans are going to regret not getting behind this, that’s what I’m thinking. And those Democrats, the Blue Dogs, whatever they are, oh I hope they all get nailed. Out. Done. Finished!

So, if the Republican Party wants to go out and say to that child who now has insurance or say to that small business that will get tax credits this year if he signs the bill to help their employees get — get health care, if they want to say to them, you know what, we’re actually going to take that away from you and we don’t think that’s such a good idea, I say let’s have that fight, make my day. I’m ready to have that and every Member of Congress ought to be willing to have that debate as well.
