The Monkey Hearing’s Stained Blue Dress
Congresswoman Eshoo’s comment at today’s congressional hearing pretty much sums up the circus-like mood Republicans find themselves in over their latest ObamaCare gotcha. Republicans have latched on to the misleading fact that some people will not be able to keep their existing health insurance policies which Republicans believe is proof positive that President Obama lied to the American people when he said, “If you like your insurance plan, you will keep it.”
Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’s tried to explain it to Republicans but they were in no mood to listen. They’ve latched on to what they believe is the equivalent of the stain on Monica Lewinsky’s blue dress and there is no way they’re about to let facts get in the way of their shiny new talking point.
