Anti-ObamaCare Protester asks Steny Hoyer Why Obama Wants Bill in 3-4 Weeks When He Took Six Months to Pick a Dog? - Video 8/4/09


Here is video of Democrat Majority Leader Steny Hoyer being challenged by "Tea Party" Protesters in New York yesterday as he tried to give his talking points about how great the Obama Administration is doing. But many in the crowd gathered would have none of that.

Several told Hoyer openly that "you are lying to us." One man, who said he is a registered Democrat, made a truly profound statement:

"Why would you guys try to stuff a health care bill down our throat in 3-4 weeks, when the President took six months to pick what he wanted for a dog for his kids? What are you doing?"

Hoyer had no answer for that. Instead he told others in the crowd that the protesters were like the same type of crowd he was sure gathered in the 1800's to oppose the building of the Erie Canal!

UPDATE: I believe that man's question is a keeper. It really helps to crystallize the absurdity of what Obama and the Democrats are trying to do. They are seeking to turn 1/6th of the nation's economy upside down in weeks when the President gave more thought to what dog he would buy. The average person gets that point. It makes no sense. Let's hope this question spreads across the nation and resonates with millions.

My favorite part of the whole thing was when he said at the end, ...because of the "investment" that WE are making.

The only way THEY can invest is to take money from us. investment = taxes. Taxes from us, our children, and our grandchildren.

Nelsa,
Great point. It will take a huge "investment," meaning higher taxes for all, in the future if it passes.

About time somebody told that Narcissist off! Anyone who would express such arrogance to the American people needs to be cleaned out of office permanently. C'mon Maryland, vote the bum out! Congress needs to wake up that the American people are NOT as STUPID as they think. We have more common sense than they do.

The health care bill is 1,400 pages long. What's in it? Did Steny even READ it? Doubtful! And He and all of Congress will continue to have their own posh medical plan and be exempt from the one they pass for We the Peons!

The absurdity was not in the man's question, but in Hoyer's response. It epitomized the arrogance and remoteness of our "representatives" in Washington. The comparison of the debate on health care with a obsolete 19th century transportation project is mind boggling. If these bums acted like this 150 years ago, they would have been run out of town on rails. It's high time for revolution in this country.

The Erie Canal was a transportation project. We are talking about people's lives here, not a new road or bridge. These politicians will never listen to the opposition. I can only hope that the states contest the inevitable passing of the bill based on the 10th amendment. What happened to our Constitution? Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that AMERICANS have a RIGHT to health care.

On another note:
'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language.. and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'

"housing starts are up for the last 3 months." But what he doesn't admit is they are the second-worst on record and remain well below last year’s levels.

With the Erie Canal reference, is Hoyer yearning for Tammany Hall? Move to Chicago.
