Why legislators are idiots October 7, 2009

Well, maybe not all idiots. They’re definitely obstinate.

Case in point, Ohio’s 8th District Representative and House Minority Leader John Boehner.

He stated that he hasn’t yet met an American that supported the public option and the original health care reform proposal put forth by the Democrats.

The really funny part of this is that someone in such a position should know that you don’t make blanket statements that your district doesn’t support a public option when 1,800 plus people in his district have just told him that they do. Mr. Boehner, here’s your ass. Hope you enjoy it.

The video below is interesting though. They talk to one tea bagger at the end who states that his opinion (And hey, I’ve got opinions too though mine tend to be backed with facts.) doesn’t have to be based on facts but instead feelings.

Feelings are an ugly thing. What happened to education in the United States where people can’t divorce their feelings from logical thought?

This plays out even on the local level here in Rhode Island. Many of our legislators (Though fewer each month) are scared to even move on things like marriage equality. This is so odd since it has been demonstrated time and again that they have support in their districts that runs roughly 2:1 in favor of marriage equality.

But we have to drag the legislators forward, and they’ll kick and scream the whole way.
