Scarborough and Weiner Debate 9/11 Bill
Wednesday, August 11, 2010 - 10:08 AM
Joe Scarborough, a former GOP congressman, doesn’t buy Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner’s explanation why the 9/11 health care bill was put up for a vote under rules requiring a 2/3 majority vote, instead of a simple majority.
Despite the volume, Scarborough and Weiner actually get into the substantive parts of the debate.
Scarborough's main complaint is that Weiner challenged Repubilcans for not supporting the legislation, but didn't act similarly to Blue Dog Democrats, or Hispanic Democratic members, who threatened to vote aganist the bill if it veered into the area of immigration.
