At a town hall Wednesday night, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) told constituents, “We’re almost reaching a revolution in this country.”
The reason? “People are not buying these concepts that are completely foreign to America.”
Inhofe also said he doesn’t need to know what’s in a health care reform bill to vote against it.
“I don’t have to read it, or know what’s in it. I’m going to oppose it anyways,” he said at the event in Chickasha, Okla.The senator was in good company, with most of the audience agreeing with him and expressing their disdain for big government and Democrats. One man said, “No more compromise. We’re losing our country.”
Inhofe isn’t the first to predict a revolution. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) told a town hall on Tuesday, “We’re seeing the beginning of a peaceful — and I emphasize peaceful — revolt in America.”
In March, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) called for citizens to be “armed and dangerous” against an energy tax and that “having a revolution every now and then is a good thing.”
And in May, former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney said Republicans need to “once again lead the American Revolution.”
