For my money, Rep. Hoyer does a far better job explaining where we are on health care reform than Eric Can’tor, who mouths the same, disingenuous Republican talking points as he always does. I particularly like when Hoyer points out that “deeming” was a procedure used “almost 100 times under Newt Gingrich and over 100 times by Speaker Hastert, which my friend Mr. Cantor supported most of the time if not all the time.” But now, all of a sudden, Can’tor argues that it’s evil incarnate, as is reconciliation, which Republicans also used many times, including on pieces of major legislation. As I said, “disingenuous.” But that’s Eric Can’tor and the Republican’ts for you, I guess.
P.S. Less substantively, I believe that even Congressman Can’tor has to admit that Hoyer’s much better dressed for St. Patrick’s Day. 🙂
