Read this From Bungalow Bill:
Billy Long is putting politics and political party before the Constitution. This perhaps may be the most pathetic action ever from the man who went to Washington claiming he was "fed up" of politics as usual in Washington.
In a comment to 97.9, Billy Long says the Obamacare ruling will be good for the Republican party.
"You can't believe how many calls we're getting at our office. Everyone is furious about this, so it's going to be a big boon to us, as far as getting more members of the Republican party in the House, picking up the Senate in the Republican column and picking up the White House."
So we have Billy Long celebrating the fact Republicans will benefit from the Obamacare ruling. This is just sick! While the American people lose, Billy Long is counting increases in red seats in the House and Senate. While our Constitution takes a direct hit as Supreme Court Justice gives Congress ultimate power in his decision that Congress can pretty much do whatever it wants as long as Congress calls it a tax, Congressman Long is propping up the Republican party as something virtuous.
I hate to burst Congressman Long's bubble, but for most of my life I have voted for the meaningless promises of the Republican party. Promises to protect life and reverse Roe V. Wade, promises to end the EPA, promises to end the Department of Education, promises to cut the size of government...
Every two years we hear these same promises, and yet no matter how many federal Republicans we elect, these promises become empty only to be made two years later.
Why should we trust Billy Long on this matter anyway. It was Billy Long who said there's lots of things about Obamacare that are good, and he had to be coached in an interview with Sarah Steelman to oppose the mandate?
For Billy Long, Obamacare is good because it means more federal Republicans to conduct more central planning of your life. Your comment is pathetic Billy Long!
