Weiner Wants a Mulligan

U.S. Rep Anthony Weiner, who voted for Obamacrap before he was against it, wants a do over. We are unsure if he had to pass the bill to know what was in it or not. What we do know is on the first anniversary, he wants a waiver for New York.

“The president said, ‘If you have better ideas that can accomplish the same thing, go for it,’” said Weiner. “I’m in the process now of trying to see if we can take [President Barack Obama] up on it in the city of New York, … and I’m taking a look at all of the money we spend in Medicaid and Medicare and maybe New York City can come up with a better plan.”

New York is one of two states that pass on Medicaid expenses to cities and localities, so “the city winds up having an enormous Medicaid expense,” Weiner said.

Sounds like pass the buck time in Yankee town.

New York is one of the wealthiest cities in America so it seems the solution to their problem is . . . tax the rich.

The congressman was trying to debunk Republican “myths” about the health care law during a speech at the Center for American Progress. He used the waivers as way to describe how flexible the law actually is and how “this notion that the government is shoving the bill down people’s throats” is not true.

If it is that flexible, then is it really a law?

Or merely a suggestion . . .

Seems to me the American people, including some who voted for Obamacrap, want a change you can believe in.
