Confronted by an angry Tea Partier with a camera Thursday, an Illinois congressman said in front of several constituents at a town hall that he doesn't care whether the new health care law violates the Constitution, as some critics have claimed.
In a video posted on You Tube, Adam Sharp of the St. Louis Tea Party asked Rep. Phil Hare which part of the Constitution authorizes the government to mandate that all Americans buy a private product such as health insurance. The Illinois Democrat replied, "I don't worry about the Constitution on this."
"Jackpot, brother," Sharp said.
Hare cringed in disgust and said, "Oh please. What I care more about, I care more about the people dying every day who don't have health care."
It's a good thing that Rep. Hare (D-Village Missing an Idiot) cares so much more about all those people just falling over dying from lack of health care. It's getting so that you can hardly walk down the sidewalk in a typical American city without tripping over the people that are falling over, dead, from a lack of health care. Around here, we don't even push them over to the gutter any more like we did back in the Bush days. There's just too many of them.
