Armey: New Health Care Bill’s Threat Is ‘Puny’ « The Washington Independent
On a conference call organized by the Republican National Committee, former House Majority Leader Dick Armey took some obvious joy in the scaled-back ambitions of the Senate’s version of health care reform. The government takeover represented in the new bill, said Armey, was “puny,” pleasing no one.
“They’ve even abandoned their own perverse power objectives,” said Armey of the Democrats. Of liberal activists, without naming names, Armey said that they’re “angry as they could be about how flimsy it is.”
