Oh well this takes the biscuit and the tea caddy as well.

After the CBO says HCR will reduce the deficit the Party of NO are plotting in their padded cells to repeal the bill and hence increase the deficit:

Even as House Democrats search for the votes to send a health-care reform bill to President Obama, dozens of Republican lawmakers and candidates have signed a pledge to back an effort to repeal the measure, should the GOP take control of either chamber of Congress after this fall's elections.

Well that looks like a campaign winner

1] Lets uninsure 35 million

2] Lets increase the deficit exponentially

All because

We are spoilt brats.

This is not a fringe movement

In all, 37 House and Senate members and 163 congressional candidates have signed the pledge.

Its a united GOP temper tantrum


Its the tactic of a party so distanced from the reality that they are willing to say anything to stir up trouble.

And from  Michele Bachmann's office we have this breaking news:

Yep, that just about sums up their considered reaction to the bill.

Have a great day

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
