What's wrong with Marion Berry?

Posted By on Wed, Mar 17, 2010 at 8:51 PM

I know. The list is long. But I'm talking about health care.

59,000 Catholic nuns support the health bill. 600 Catholic hospitals support the health bill. Pro-life Reps. Oberstar and Killdee support the health bill.

What does Rep. Marion "Good Riddance" Berry know about the bill's abortion language  (it actually makes the situation worse for women) that these others don't know? Isn't he really opposing health care legislation because he's expressing his district's deep dislike of President Obama? Is it racial? Whatever the motive, it's selfish and punishing to tens of thousands of his constituents. Frankly, he doesn't appear to give a damn. I hope nobody throws him a parade when he slinks home.
