But, But, But - It Was The PATRIOT Act!
In 2004, Obama criticized passing legislation without reading it, without "clear debate."
But, now that it's 2009, he has to have healthcare reform rushed through - no time to stop and read it, not time for debate, it has to be done now!
BARACK OBAMA: ...When you rush these budgets that are a foot high and nobody
has any idea what's in them and nobody has read them.
RANDI RHODES: 14 pounds it was!
BARACK OBAMA: Yeah. And it gets rushed through without any clear
deliberation or debate then these kinds of things happen. And I think that
this is in some ways what happened to the PATRIOT Act.
Now that it's healthcare, why, that's different.
Don't read those 1,000+ pages! Just pass it!
