Vote to Repeal Obamacare Will Send Powerful, Historic Statement
They’re gonna do it. They’re really gonna do it, and I like it. I love, ladies and gentlemen, love the idea of reading the Constitution on the floor of the House of Representatives today. It’s an exorcism. Look at it that way. The House Republicans are performing an exorcism today. The Democrat controlled 111th Congress is being exorcised, evil, if you will, is being removed. When they start reading the Constitution, you watch, I want to see how many Democrats get up and leave. (laughing) You would not believe, they’re calling this a fetish, people have a fetish. We have a fetish with the Constitution here. So let’s see when the exorcism begins if Democrats get up, some of them, and walk out of the chamber.
Right here it is in the Washington Post: “Recitation of Constitution Set in House Renews Debate Over Founders’ Intentions.” This is a serious news story in the Washington Post today. You know, it’s fascinating, folks. If you notice when the Republicans decide to vote on overturning Democrat legislation, like their effort to repeal Obamacare — even though it’s gonna be vetoed, we know it’s gonna be vetoed by Obama — the news media is calling this a stunt. They’re calling it political theater. And it’s anything but. It’s dead serious. When was the last time, let me ask you, when was the last time that a bill of any substance, any substantive size, was voted on for repeal? Do you recall? I don’t mean reform. But when was the last time a vote was taken to repeal a piece of legislation? I don’t know the answer. I know it doesn’t happen every day. It’s a big deal.
