In Passing

Another click of the ratchet

Not a Dime’s Worth of Difference  Dept
Huffington Post:
In the wake of the passage of health care reform, nearly the entire slate of Republican senatorial candidates seems ready to run on a repeal of the bill.  But now, the lawmaker overseeing their election strategy is softening the message. Rather than promising to scrap the bill in its entirety, the GOP will pledge to just get rid of the more controversial parts.

In a brief chat with the Huffington Post on Tuesday, National Republican Senatorial Committee chair John Cornyn (R-Tex.) implicitly acknowledged that Republicans are content with allowing some elements of Obama’s reform into law.  And they’d generally ignore those elements when taking the fight to their Democrat opponents as November approaches.

“There is non-controversial stuff here like the preexisting conditions exclusion and those sorts of things,” the Texas Republican said. “Now we are not interested in repealing that.  And that is frankly a distraction.”
Restoring liberty is “frankly a distraction,” huh?  C’mon you apologists, tell me again why I should vote Republican?

Via:  The Corner via Bill Quick, who noted:
And the dumbasses just can’t resist blabbing to the commies over at HuffnHos, either.

LATER:  Oh yes, we’ve heard from Cornyn before!

LATER YET:  Cornyn says he was “misquoted.”  Rrrr-i-i-i-g-g-g-h-h-ht!
