Senate President: Paperwork Required for This One, Not for Those 12 Million
While Senator Jim Webb (D-Virginia) has called for all further votes on health care reform to be suspended until Scott Brown is seated, Mark Steyn points to Senate President Reid’s new-found enchantment with documentation.
Harry Reid’s reluctance to seat Senator Brown (R., Mass.) — boy, I enjoyed typing that — until “the proper paperwork has been received” seems awfully finicky for a man who famously declared he wanted to bring “12 million undocumented Americans out of the shadows.”
A duly elected freshman Republican? Check his paperwork!
Twelve million potential supporters of me and my party? Waive them right in!
A compromise, Mr. Senate President? Let’s check everyone’s documentation, including that of the new Senator from Massachusetts.
