Was Massa Ousted Over Health Care?

by on March 8, 2010

As if New York politics needed more drama, Politco reports that Rep. Eric Massa says that the White House and DEmocrat leaders in the House of Representative ousted him over his position on health care.

Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) says the House ethics committee is investigating him for inappropriate comments he made to a male staffer on New Year’s Eve — and that he’s the victim of a power play by Democratic leaders who want him out of Congress because he’s a “no” vote on health care reform.

“Mine is now the deciding vote on the health care bill,” Massa, who on Friday announced his intention to resign, said during a long monologue on radio station WKPQ. “And this administration and this House leadership have said, quote-unquote, they will stop at nothing to pass this health care bill. And now they’ve gotten rid of me, and it will pass. You connect the dots.”

Do I think Massa’s claim could be true? Sure, we are seeing Democrats trying to force David Paterson to resign, so, at this point, it’s hard put anything past the Democratic Party when it comes to getting what they want. I totally believe Massa description of Rahm Emanuel.

“Rahm Emanuel is son of the devil’s spawn, Rep. Eric Massa (D-NY) said. “He is an individual who would sell his mother to get a vote. He would strap his children to the front end of a steam locomotive.”

Rep. Massa describes a confrontation with Emanuel in a shower: “I am showering, naked as a jaybird, and here comes Rahm Emanuel, not even with a towel wrapped around his tush, poking his finger in my chest, yelling at me.”

Let’s face it. Obama is desperate to get his government takeover of health care passed. He has said that he’d rather pass the bill then get reelected…  Whether or not you believe him is irrelevant, he is trying to appear selfless in this battle, as if he’ll take one for the team ot do the right thing for the country. The problem is, it is the wrong thing for the country, and members of Congres will support the bill at serious risk. Polls show the people don’t want it, and members of Congress are being bribed or strong-armed  into submission because that’s the only way to get them to go along. Well, Obama is going to have a hard time doing anything if he gets this thing pased because most of the suckers who vote for it will get voted out in November. Plain and simple.
