OK, she’s upset that a fellow Democrat is helping derail a bill that Americans don’t want, and is being pushed only by lefty ideologues because they can see total control of American life within their reach. But this is too much.
A House Democrat from Connecticut said Tuesday that Sen. Joe Lieberman should be recalled from office over his opposition to the Senate health care bill.
“No individual should hold health care hostage, including Joe Lieberman, and I’ll say it flat out, I think he ought to be recalled,” Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) told POLITICO.
Connecticut has no recall law for state officials, and the Constitution does not authorize states to recall members of Congress since each house has the authority to police its own members. DeLauro acknowledged that she didn’t know “what the Connecticut process is because I never found myself in this position — but I think it is unconscionable that he would hold up health care.”
She said that millions of people die because they lack health insurance.
I particularly like the “millions of people die because they lack health insurance”. We’ve dealt with that lie/scare tactic here but that never stops a lefty Congresswoman from pushing her agenda. More importantly, she’s not upset with the senior Senator lying about his Ireland house or his role in the AIG bonuses or his role in the financial collapse of the financial system. Nope. She’s upset because Joe tried to stop a health care bill that would have bankrupted America, hurt seniors, rationed care and raised premiums on private plans. Don’t believe me? Ask famous lefty economist Robert Reich.
Oh and one more thing. A sitting Congressperson admits she does not know the law for her own state, but is willing to call for a recall she doesn’t understand anyway. Perfect.
