Weiner Claims He ‘Wrote’ Obama-Care Bill

Here’s a little tidbit from last week we almost missed, from the Politico:


Weiner says he ‘wrote’ the House health care bill

By Maggie Haberman
September 16, 2010

Here’s a clip of Rep. Anthony Weiner at a town hall meeting, asked about the health care bill, declaring, "I wrote the bill."

But did he read it?

"… The bill and I are one."

Which tells you a lot about both of them.

Weiner made the comments on Monday night at the Middle Village Property Tax Association, taking rather strong ownership of the congressional reform bill that few are embracing when a voter asked about it.

Which goes to show you how out of the mainstream either Mr. Weiner and/or his constituents are.

Weiner had been a strong advocate for a single-payer option, which was never part of the final drafts.

Oh, the single payer option is written into the healthcare bill, all right. In fact, ultimately, it is not even an option – it is inevitable.

The Senate version of the health care bill had most of the elements that actually passed, not the House one

Nitpicker.

    Weiner. He is most aptly named don’t you think?

  2. Claiming responsibility for the travesty that is Obama-care during this election season, in the current political climate just proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Weiner is a complete moron, and totally detached from reality. This (and I use the term loosely) man is only out to make a name for himself. (Dale Carnegie couldn’t have come up with a better visualization to remember this guy’s name. Weiner works on so many levels.) Well, now your name is made. We’ll remember you Dick… Oscar… Meyer… WEINER, that’s it!

    Weiner, Kucinich, Grayson, and Paul – what happens when the inmates run the asylum. I only have to be truly frightened as to the voters who put these morons into office and wonder as to the mental qualities of their opponents. It is politicos like these and the ‘citizens’ who voted them into office that makes me wonder if indeed America is doomed to death/sociallism and/or 3rd World status.

    God Help America
    A Proud American Infidel

    The question isn’t whether Wienie wrote the bill, it’s whether he can write at all.

    It just gets better and better doesn’t it?

  6. Weiner is in my district and you can be sure I’ll let the ballot box know what I think about his work come November!

    But I’m not optimistic…

    Well, thank goodness…

    Now why didn’t Nancy Piglosi tell us?…He could have told us what was in it before they passed it.?

    Of course he wrote all 2400 + pages…of course he did.
