Congress hasn't even voted on the repeal of ObamaCare, but one of the bright lights from the Democratic Party is already helping change the tone in Washington by wailing how the GOP is already killing people.
Repealing healthcare reform would result in "killing Americans," one Democratic lawmaker suggested Tuesday night.Really, the Democrats created jobs? Uh, where exactly? Millions of jobs have been lost during their reign of error and we're supposed to pretend they've been creating jobs?
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), in a speech on the House floor about the rhetoric surrounding Republicans' bill to undo the new reform law, said repeal would result in more deaths in the U.S.
"Frankly, I would just say to you, this is about saving lives. Jobs are very important; we created jobs," Jackson Lee said. "But even the title of their legislation, H.R. 2, 'job killing' — this is killing Americans if we take this away, if we repeal this bill."
Well, Jackson Lee hasn't ever been known as one of the brightest bulbs.
"So I would argue that my good friends, some of them are new and I appreciate their newness, I appreciate their desire to keep a commitment to constituents — but when you come to the Congress, you have to govern, you have to look at the whole of America," Jackson Lee said in her floor speech. "And therefore, looking at the whole of America, you need to look at the crux; the crux is saving lives."Has this woman ever made any sense?
