Bob Schieffer, host of CBS’s Face the Nation, DESTROYED Senator John Cornyn’s (R-TX) talking points concerning the shutdown. Schieffer schooled this imbecile about passing a “clean bill” to fund the government. Schieffer pointed out that all of this began because Ted Cruz didn’t like “Obamacare.”
He pointed out that it is not reasonable to attach a list of demands to legislation to fund the government:
“Senator, isn’t there something wrong when you say I won’t fund the government unless I can attach my personal wish list to the legislation every time we vote? I’d love to see the government find a cause, uh, cure for cancer, but I don’t think you can say I’m not going to pass and pass any funds for the rest of the government until the NIS (National Institution of Health) finds a cure for cancer. I mean, isn’t that just kind of the same thing here?”
Schieffer also likened the Republican strategy to, essentially, to running a protection racket, saying it was like stating:
“I’m going to throw a brick through your window unless you give me $20.” In his typically calm, relaxed demeanor, Schieffer obliterated Cornyn’s talking points.
Watch for yourself as Senator Cornyn, the idiot from Texas, falls on his face trying to BS his way out of this meeting!
