SENATOR DURBIN TELLS IT LIKE IT IS
Posted by Andrew Roman on March 11, 2010
It’s unclear whether large, dark-clad Obamacrats carrying big sticks will show up at the house of Senator Dick Durbin in the middle of the night for a “friendly visit,” but it’s obvious, he won’t be getting a whole lot of love from the White House – that is, until Durbin can come out and tell us how what he said was misquoted and taken out of context by sinister Republicans. Like most things that come out of the mouths of Democrats, “further clarification” will almost assuredly follow.
Still, Senator Durbin did tell it like it is (and how it will be) – to his credit – and is worthy of a special “quote of the day” space on this blog.
Anyone who would stand before you and say, “Well, if you pass health care reform, next year’s health care premiums are going down,” I don’t think is telling the truth. I think it is likely they would go up. What we’re trying to do is slow the rate of increase.
Although the word “likely” is a bone for the left. There can be no doubt that premiums will go up.
Nice job, Dick.
