THE SAPIENT SPARROW: conservatism for commoners

"What has always made the State a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven."–Holderlin


At National Review Online, Jim Geraghty just posted a list of those vulnerable Democrats who voted for the “Slaughter Rule”, a.k.a., “demonpass”.  At the top of the list is Rep. Jason Altmire.  In my previous post today, I provided a link to his interview with Sean Hannity that occurred yesterday.  If you haven’t already viewed the interview, you may want to do that now.  Here is what he said about the “Slaughter Rule” yesterday.

HANNITY: The Slaughter Rule–are you for it or against it?

ALTMIRE: Absolutely, absolutely against it.  It’s within the rules.  I don’t think it’s the appropriate way to do healthcare.

HANNITY: Deem and pass, it’s the same thing?

ALTMIRE: It’s the same thing.

I posed a question in my last post asking whether these Reps are ignorant or lying.  What’s your call on this one?
