Health Care Bill - Kagen & Obey Undecided?

esLakeshore Laments

A political weblog specializing in Wisconsin politics and culture

So, That’s a “No” Then Steve?

Oh, this little moment of media puffery last night on Channel 11 in Green Bay won’t come back to haunt the guy this November at all.

<sarcasm>Not. One. Bit.</sarcasm>

“Let me put it this way: you’re asking whether or not I trust the United States Senate, where they came up with a deal for Nebraska that the other states didn’t get; where Louisiana would get a special deal. No, I don’t trust the U.S. Senate,” said Rep. Steve Kagen (D-8th District). “So I think I’d like to have a vote on something very meaningful.”

Kagen said the health care bill should be split up into smaller bills.

“I have made the case to the speaker and also to the White House that we should take small pieces, small bites,” Kagen said. “In the practice of medicine, I can’t give a child a big pill. What do we do? We cut it up into pieces. Let’s find things we can agree on.”

Let’s just go with the facts here shall we?

1) Has Nancy Pelosi listened to Kagen one iota in the past during the health care bill debate?  Um, No.

2) Does it appear that Kagen is trying to cloud the picture as to what is the reconciliation process need to be accomplished (i.e., House passes the Senate bill, President signs it, then a “corrected bill” passes both the House and Senate by simple majority votes)?  Likely.

3) Will Kagen be a “No” vote on what is the first step of reconciliation, which he has said publicly he backsThat also be a No.

If the reporter, Robert Hornacek of WLUK Fox 11 bought what Kagen spewed, he seriously needs to get his head examined.  When it’s time for the vote, Kagen will be a solid “Yes.”
