Politics before patients

Posted By on Fri, Jul 17, 2009 at 11:42 AM

This quote from U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint, a South Carolina Republican, pretty well says what the debate about health care is all about, and it's not about those without: It's pure politics.

"If we’re able to stop Obama on this it will be his Waterloo. It will break him," he said.

The good news for DeMint is that many Democrats on his team, including U.S. Rep. Mike Ross of the impoverished Fourth Distrrict of Arkansas, where minorities, particularly, suffer from lack of care. Ross sits on a committee prepared to bomb Obama next week, Dem majority or no.
