Sen. Enzi just another Republican obstructionist from Wyoming

From Ryan Grim at the Huffington Post:

Mike Enzi, one of three Republicans ostensibly negotiating health care reform as part of the Senate's "Gang of Six," told a Wyoming town hall crowd that he had no plans to compromise with Democrats and was merely trying to extract concessions.

"It's not where I get them to compromise, it's what I get them to leave out," Enzi said Monday, according to the
Billings Gazette.

Don't you wish you had free health care courtesy of U.S. taxpayers and delivered by the dreadfully inept U.S. gubment? Sen. Enzi of Gillette gets a cough, he gets a free health check-up. Sen. John Barrasso of Casper, M.D., gets a hitch in his getalong, he sees a doctor for free. Rep. Cynthia Lummis from Cheyenne has to undergo an operation (as she did recently) and she can recover in peace. No deductible to worry about. No bills from the hospital and later, when the payment is a few days late, no collection notices or annoying phone calls.

Ah, peace of mind. Don't you wish that you had a stake in that?
