GOP Rep. Aaron Schock Says Pelosi Doesn't Want "Her President Challenged," But Had No Problem Challenging Previous President - Video 9/10/09
Here is video of GOP Rep. Aaron Schock on Fox & Friends this morning talking about President Obama's Health Care speech last night.
He talked about GOP Rep. Joe Wilson shouting out last night "You Lie!" at President Obama when he claimed no illegal aliens would be covered under his plan. Wilson has since apologized, although he continues to disagree with the content of Obama's statement.
While Schock agrees the conduct was "not in keeping with the decorum of the House," he said Pelosi's reaction was a double-standard:
"Apparently, she has a problem with people challenging her leadership, and the leadership of her President, but she didn't have a problem challenging the leadership and the President of the last administration."Schock said Obama's speech failed to unite the country or the Congress, and called for Obama to try and pass a bill on the areas of their agreement and stop trying to push through the things that are divisive.
Schock said Obama was not being honest when he claimed his plan would not add a cent to the nation's debt, something he said was not possible.
