Lindsey Graham: Seedy Chicago Politics Passed Health Care Bill (Video)
Senator Graham nailed it this time.
“After the “health care bill debacle,” the “change you can believe in” slogan that President Obama campaigned on in 2008 seems to have been replaced by “seedy Chicago politics” with “backroom deals that amount to bribes.”… Enron accounting techniques — everything that people were upset with about Washington has gotten worse. This bill personifies the worst in Washington.”
NBC Chicago reported:
Graham, a long-time friend and adviser to President Obama’s election opponent John McCain, said the bill, which passed the Senate late Saturday night was only reached because of “seedy Chicago politics” which have been established by the new president from Chicago.
“This is far from over. The House and Senate bills are in many ways irreconcilable,” Graham, a Republican who voted against the bill said on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sunday morning. “ … You know, change you can believe in, after this health care bill debacle is now becoming an empty slogan. And it’s really been replaced by seedy Chicago politics, when you think about it, backroom deals that amount to bribes.”
