Quote of the Day

Andrew Roth - February 25th, 2010

Just keep on talking, Mr. Vice President.  At the rate you’re going, Republicans are going to win the health care debate before the day is over:

JOSEPH BIDEN: "I’m always reluctant after being here 37 years to tell people what the American people think. I think it requires a little bit of humility to be able to know what the American people think, and I don’t, I can’t swear I do. I know what I think. I think I know what they think. But I’m not sure what they think. And the second point I’d make is…"

Which Is It, Senator Gregg?

Andrew Roth - February 09th, 2010

Some Republicans appear ready to have bipartisan talks with President Obama regarding healthcare reform.  One of them is Senator Judd Gregg. 

According to the New York Times, Gregg says that two good starting points for compromise should be his own healthcare plan or the disastrous Wyden-Bennett plan (RED ALERT!).

It should be pointed out that both of these bills contain the anti-growth, anti-freedom individual mandate that is firmly unconstitutional.  But in fact, the individual mandate is so important to Gregg apparently that the opening line in his op-ed defending his bill reads, "To be effective, health care reform must include insurance coverage for everyone."

And yet, during the Senate health care debate in December, Gregg voted for the John Ensign point of order that stated the individual mandate was unconstitutional.

Which is it, Senator?  You can’t have it both ways.
