Fed up Billy Long wants to cut the cheese. Hot diggity dog!

Here is a transcript of Long's inaugural speech on the house floor, all one minute and one second of it:

Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

I rise in support of H.R. 2.

In this country we have the finest doctors, the finest nurses, the finest protocols, the finest facilities in the world.

That's not a government run system.

I swore to uphold the constitution two weeks ago today in this, the people's house.

The people have spoken and they don't want Washington bureaucrats coming between them and their doctor.

They'd like to make their own decisions.

You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear but that's exactly what the majority tried to do last year by using ten years of taxes to pay for a six-year program.
Increasing spending by $2.6 trillion and that's not what I'd call affordable when it's 1/6 of this nation's economy.

When I think of this 2,000 page bill, I think of a big block of cheese out there.
Pretty tempting looking.

While the Americans I hear from, they don't want that cheese.

They want out of the trap of government run healthcare.

I yield back.

Hot diggity dog!

They want out of the trap of "government run healthcare"?

The phrase is simply not true. Jonathan Oberlander, a professor of health policy at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill: "The label 'government takeover" has no basis in reality, but instead reflects a political dynamic where conservatives label any increase in government authority in health care as a 'takeover.' "

It's been called by many THE LIE OF THE YEAR.

Hot diggity dog, Billy, hot diggity dog.

Republicans win vote to repeal healthcare w/ 3 democrats.

But it's a Pyrrhic victory for conservatives.

Pyrrhic victory implies not just a hollow victory, but in fact a victory that hurts you more than you hurt your opponent.

That's our Billy! Always thinking of food!

I question his taste however, a big block of cheese....well,it's not that tempting to me unless you got diarrhea and are looking for something to plug you up.

Say, wonder you find it tempting
