Four More Obamacare Hearings In Congress This Week
I call these hearings a waste of money because they are not really hearings; they are full on propaganda shows, put on by the GOP in order to get negative ObamaCare press they can use in 2014. The real reason Republicans are holding these hearings is to provide 2014 campaign sound bites for their members.
Just last week a local news outlet busted Darrell Issa’s “ObamaCare hearing” because he only let the folks who furthered his narrative testify. This is Issa’s and the GOP”s stock and trade — they did it with Benghazi, they did it with the IRS, and they’re doing it with ObamaCare. It’s taxpayer funded propaganda for electoral campaign purposes.
