The other day Tom Coburn(R-OK) asked people to pray that someone will not show up to vote for health care reform so that the Democrats will not be able to reach their 60 filibuster proof vote.
Apparently James Inhofe (R-OK) did not understand that Coburn was hoping Democrats would not show up, so Inhofe decided not to show up for the second vote.
This was the reaction from one of the tea party wingnuts who called in to talk to Coburn on CSPAN:
“Yeah doctor. Our small tea bag group here in Waycross, we got our vigil together and took Dr. Coburn’s instructions and prayed real hard that Sen. Byrd would either die or couldn’t show up at the vote the other night.”
“How hard did you pray because I see one of our members was missing this morning. Did it backfire on us? One of our members died? How hard did you pray senator? Did you pray hard enough?”
I guess the Republicans have now stooped to praying for death to stop health care reform.
Inhofe (again) told an Oklahoma paper that the vast major of Republicans decided to end their delay tactics so they can go home for Christmas.
“..we’ve had all the fun we’re going to have” debating the bill, Inhofe said.
To Inhofe and other Republicans health care reform is a game. They don’t care that 30 million Americans are uninsured, that insurance companies deny coverage for pre-existing conditions and various claims, etc.
And finally a reason for all intelligent Americans to think twice about voting for any Republican for Congress in 2010.
This revelation from Newt Gingrich declaring that if the Republicans take control of the House
“I think that both Ed Royce and Michele Bachmann, who are here today, are going to end up being chairs, probably in January of 2011″
