Attacking Obama Care
Sean kicked off the show making a closing argument on the future of Obama Care as it comes closer to what seems like an end. “Obama Care is the single most reckless, irresponsible piece of domestic legislation we’ve ever had in our lifetime,” argued Sean, “it will help destroy the greatest economy in the world and put us in the greatest debt we could ever imagine.” Sean continued, “I’ll be long gone but if this were to be passed it would be a disaster for this country.” The latest Rasmussen polls are showing a 22% approval of President Obama which is his lowest to date. It’s a curious thing to see President Obama’s ratings fall so far and yet he hasn’t changed courses yet. He could probably learn a few things from former President Bill Clinton.
Congressmen Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor
Sean was joined by Conservative House Republicans Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor to discuss the latest in the battle to stop Obama Care. “So where are we now,” asked Sean. “Every Republican Senator told us today that they’ll uphold the Byrd Rule which strictly prohibits the Senate from considering extraneous matters as part of a reconciliation bill,” an elated Ryan said. “So Congressman Cantor, you have the distinguished position of being the Whip in the house, where do the votes stand,” asked Sean. “Democrats are trying to use the reconciliation rule to circumvent the will of the people,” argued Cantor, “but right now Nancy Pelosi doesn’t have the votes.”
Governor Ed Rendell
Sean was joined by his friend and arch-enemy, Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell to discuss the November elections. “Last time you were on, I heard you took a little heat for being on the show,” joked Sean. “I certainly did,” laughed Rendell, “and if I were running today I’d be in trouble but there are some things worth losing for.” It’s fascinating to see Governor Rendell on the hot seat trying to defend Obama Care and it’s certainly refreshing to hear from an honest politician who’s willing to admit they’re supporting legislation that their constituents don’t support. If more of them would admit that, we wouldn’t still be talking about Obama Care.
