Fresh from his remarks in Congress, withdrawn by Republican demand, that the GOP is a “wholly owned subsidiary of the insurance industry,” and that in fact “every single Republican I have ever met in my entire life is a wholly owned subsidiary of the insurance industry,” Congressman Anthony Weiner is liveblogging at Daily Kos on today’s bipartisan health care summit through 4 p.m.
Weiner says “we won’t be in the room” for the summit, “but I still have a TV and a laptop,” and he will follow events and give some more of his increasingly famous commentary.
So far Weiner has said of his obstreperous remarks, “The Republicans squealed like pigs and immediately demanded that my words be ‘taken down’ as they say in the House. But they can’t say it’s not true,” and predicts that they’ll “spend today’s health care summit ranting and raving.”
If you wish, you may get more temperate coverage from the New York Times, which apparently is in the room, and with video yet. So far the discussion seems collegial, which may be why they didn’t let Weiner in.
