– Fred Barnes, Fox News commentator, January 20: “The health care bill, ObamaCare, is dead
Well, maybe he left himself an out.
... with not the slightest prospect of resurrection.”
– Robert A. Levy, chairman of the Cato Institute, January 26: “That’s why Obamacare is dead.”
Anybody remember when the Cato Institute was at least respectable? Yeah, me neither.
– Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), Minority Whip [and Britney Spears fan], March 19: “[T]here’s no way they can pass this bill.”
– Rep. John Boehner (R-OH), Minority Leader, March 17: Health care reform will pass “over my dead body.”
I shall await Rep. Boehner's Hari kari ceremony with great interest.
And he's said to be a "media-savvy" Republican.
