George LeMieux Talking Points Get Mangled on Cable News Show



Is there anyone out there besides George LeMieux and his fellow Republicans in Congress who think that this health care issue hasn't been debated to death? To someone who was appointed to the U.S. Senate this past fall, it may seem like health care reform has sneaked up on Congress, but it's been part of the national debate since Barack Obama was inaugurated more than a year ago.

And as MSNBC's Chuck Todd points out, the Senate has already had opportunities to do exactly what LeMieux says it hasn't done: to have a thorough debate about the merits of the health care reform bill.
