Another Attitude Adjustment: Claire McCaskill

Oh what a difference a day makes. Claire McCaskill is singing a different tune today on healthcare reform. She has a statement out today saying she is done ramming healthcare reform down our throats.

Claire McCaskill to Politico

"As I said to somebody last night:, everybody needs to get the Washington wax out of their ears and listen and pay attention that people out there believe that we are going too far, too fast," McCaskill told POLITICO. 
 "I've said to the leader, 'I don't think it's a good idea for us to try to pass another bill in the Senate before Sen. Scott Brown is seated," McCaskill said. "I think that's a bad idea. 

Perhaps if Claire had taken out that Washington wax after her numerous town hall meetings, things would not have gotten to this point.   Sorry, Claire too little too late.  Throughout this entire healthcare reform nightmare, the people were saying loudly and clearly they did not want it. So now that the people have proven there will be no safe seats come 2010, all of a sudden all these deaf Democrats can hear as clear as a bell. I expect more attitude adjustments to follow.

Via: Politico

Oh yes, there will lots of CYA today. They all will be denying that they ever thought this bill was a good idea. Sadly, that thick-headed dolt, Obama, as well as tweedle dum and tweedle dee, Pelosi and Reid, will continue on and most likely use reconciliation to pass this horror of a bill.

The rats are abandoning the healthcare ship.

Funny, I got an e-mail from Claire McCaskill a couple weeks ago which didn't address my concerns, but it did brag about how quickly she accomplished the healthcare issue in the Senate--five weeks, and she claim she read it too.

Neither side is safe unless they lose the "publish or perish" legislation mentality. There are few pieces of legislation written that don't have a cost. Even more galling is that our elected officials don't write legislation themselves, never mind reading it.

i think it was a lesson for us the voter too. we need to learn to throw those out of office that want to make it a life time career.

it is only when they do not feel safe that they begin to listen.

Insincere, overdue, dishonest to the core, words that will at her earliest convenience be disavowed(or claimed to be misquoted).

Blood in the water, time to finish the rest of these folks off (in both parties!) next November.

"...people out there believe that we are going too far, too fast," (Claire McCaskill)

There's some nice whistling past the graveyard!

Translation: "We're just moving too fast, if we slow down our socialist agenda the people will love it.

Guess again Claire.
