0 for 6; not a single opponent of health care has a basic familiarity with their constituents health care needs
Today I spoke with Representative Steve King and Senator Jim Demint. (Sorry for the lack of production over the last coupla days; I’m still recovering from the swine flu and I’m not feeling my best, so today was a short day for me.)
Anyway, maybe I’m crazy, but I don’t know man… Why don’t these folks know how many uninsured there are in their states/districts? Isn’t that one fundamental datapoint that should be in the forefront of all of their minds? Could it be that they think they represent AHIP? The Chamber of Commerce is their only constituent that matters? Pharma is more important than the millions of people that can’t afford life-sustaining medicines?
Anyway, here are the videos from today… (if you got here by direct link to this post, you’ll find Virginia Foxx, Darryl Issa and Joe Wilson just below this post).
