A Democratic lawmaker signed onto a Republican petition to repeal so-called healthcare reform.
Rep. Gene Taylor (D-Miss.) signed onto a discharge petition drafted by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), Taylor's office confirmed. His office would not offer any additional comment.
Taylor is the first Democrat to sign onto the petition, a reflection of the tough electoral climate facing Democrats this fall, especially over healthcare reform.
“Adding Rep. Taylor to the discharge petition is a significant step towards repealing Obamacare,” said King. “Rep. Taylor is the first Democrat to sign the discharge petition, and it is my hope that his decision will pave the way for other Democrats who support repeal to break ranks with Speaker Pelosi and President Obama.”
During a March 2010 interview when asked about her position as the U.S. president’s wife, Michelle Obama replied, ‘Don’t ask! It’s hell. I can’t stand it!’
Naturally, all of the details are revealed in a new book by Miss Carla Bruni entitled, ‘Carla And The Ambitious.’ Don’t buy it! We posted this ‘news’ simply for posterity. Let’s see how it all plays out while recalling Michelle’s profound statement made during her husband’s presidential campaign still in progress, “for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.”
