    that was terribly disappointing to me when Anthony Wiener resigned.  He could always be counted on to call a spade a spade!  Preferably along with rubbing his opponent's nose in the pile of crap they were spewing.

    To the left, to the left....

    •  He was great at that (6+ / 0-)

      I recall him in a House Committee mark up session for the original  ACA bill (the good version). Some Gooper on the Committee kept proposing amendments to the bill that would cut funding or otherwise screw up Medicare. He did it about 10 or 20 times, over and over. A poison pill ploy.

      Weiner brought the Medicare shenanigans to a halt by introducing an amendment to completely abolish Medicare, effective immediately. He gave the Gooper quite a lecture on why, if he hated health care reform and Medicare, he should vote to end it.

      Everyone on the Committee had to vote, on CSPAN. Of course, the Goopers wouldnt publicly vote to kill Medicare, so they voted against Weiner's amendment and it failed, allowing Dems to proceed with ACA.

      It was hilarious, really miss that.

      Money is property, not speech. Overturn Citizens United.
