Al Franken Makes An Ass Of Himself On Senate Floor

In one of the funniest scenes in years by Al Franken, the Minnesota blight on the US Senate, Franken attacks Republican Senator John Thune, who demonstrated that the massive taxes kick in years before any significant benefits from the Senate Health Reform bill actually materialize.

Of course, the point is, to make the math work out, the taxes must be front loaded for 5 years before any meaningful spending occurs, or the bill would be DOA because it raises the deficit. Thune accurately pointed out the math gimmick being employed by Democrats to hide the true cost of the bill.

Well, Frankin thinks he has found a “gotcha” moment and begins spewing parts of the bill that go into effect almost immediately. Things like forcing Insurance Companies to cover pre-existing conditions and doing away with Policy Lifetime Maximum limits.

Thune pointed out that these were not benefits, but items that will actually force the price of Health Insurance to rise for those of us with current plans, as more Government unfunded mandates move in to destroy the Health Insurance industry.

Thune is correct, of course. Most of the spending will not begin until 2013, but the taxes begin immediately.

Just how far below 100 is Franken’s IQ?

  4. Jonathan Scott says:

    Franken simply proves the point that any idiot can manage to win a seat in Congress, but most are smart enough not to embarass themselves on the floor of the Senate or House their first years in office…..Franken is simply way out of his depth in the Senate.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
