The money quote from Weiner: "If you believe this is a bad idea, to provide health care, then vote
no—but don’t give me the cowardly view that ‘if only it was a different
procedure.'" He refers to the mealy-mouthed, hide-the-ball, obstructionary gymnastics the Republicans are so adept at playing. This time the object of the GOP's game is to deny health care to people who were injured or made sick from the 9/11 attacks and clean-up... but look like you still support it. Nice. Odd that Republicans seem to like games that always have average working Americans on the losing side and insanely wealthy clowns like these two on the winning side. (Well, not in this latest case, but I digress.)
I wish more Democrats had the balls this guy has. It would sure help move things along in the face of Republicans whose only commitment seems to be in saying "no" and serving their corporate masters.
