Representative Tim Ryan Denouces “Teabaggers”

Filed under: Health and Social Policy,Politics — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 17:34

While normally I would be determined to ignore such rhetoric for fear of giving it any kind of attention, today on the House Floor, Representative Tim Ryan denounced the┬ádisgusting and moronic “teabaggers” who spewed racist and homophobic slurs to Congressmen Barney Frank and John Lewis (also spitting on Lewis) yesterday. Some Republicans have attempted to distance themselves from the behavior while others, like Devin Nunes (R-CA), have actually defended it! Take a look at Ryan’s response below, where he slams the Republicans for endorsing the moron “teabaggers” who continue to demonstrate their complete lack of intelligence and inability to understand how vital this reform bill is for the nation’s healthcare system (despite its endorsement from every major reputable nursing, medical, and hospital profesional organization). Regardless, the Bill now looks like it has the necessary 216 votes to pass, making their attempts not only laughable, but futile as well.
