Okay, a point I wanted to make clear last week when he was asked about the 30 million people who could lose healthcare if the Affordable Care Act was repealed, Mitch McConnell said, “That’s not the issue.”
Well Mitch, when asked a question, the person asking the question has an issue they want addressed, in this case the issue was from Chris Wallace about explaining what would happen to the 30 million who would be left without healthcare if ACA was repealed. That was his issue, it’s the issue of the 30 million Americans effected, it’s my issue and if you should realize that since the question was asked of you, it is now your issue. To simply reply, “that’s not the issue” is a lame, lazy ploy to avoid answering a question you know you have no answer for. It’s a dodge and worse, it’s presumptuous. How dare you tell us what the issue is! If you don’t have an answer, or your answer is embarrassing, then say that. As Abraham Lincoln once said “better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. Sir, you proved to us you are a fool.
