Weiner Rants On House Floor: GOP Lies On HCR Should Be A Drinking Game (VIDEO)

January 19, 2011 12:18 pm

During the House debate on repeal of health care reform today, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) reprised his famous (or infamous) rant against Republicans: “You know, I want to just advise people watching at home playing that now popular drinking game of ‘you take a shot whenever Republicans say something that’s not true.’ Please assign a designated driver. This is going to be a long afternoon.”Whereas back in July, Weiner was angry about the Republicans’ failure to pass the 9/11 first responders health care bill, today it was about the efforts to repeal health care reform in its entirety: “First they start by making stuff up. You kind of have to wonder if any of them actually read the bill. 130,000 new agencies, not true. New IRS agents, not true. Death panels, not true. Members aren’t covered. Not true. No tort reform in it. Not true.”
