During an interview on Fox News, Anthony Weiner, the Congressman for NY 9th District, behaved in a matter which illustrates why so many people are so frustrated with politicians. What was the behavior .... to blatantly and willfully mislead the public about what is happening.
Weiner stated that the Republicans are refusing to vote for any healthcare reform and are blocking the legislation to side with the insurance industry. He began his answer to every question asked with this reminder. This is so frustrating because it has been made very clear that there are reforms that the Republicans would like to pass but that they object (as most Americans due) to the All Or Nothing / Take It Or Leave It bill that is being forced down the throats of the American people.
Both sides of the isle do this, but I'm so disgusted with the political spin which is nothing but lies and the willfull misleading of the American populace. Then they have the audacity and unmitigated gall to wonder why we don't trust them and don't believe anything they tell us.
Only a politician (or a crazy person) could lie to you repeatedly and then wonder why you don't believe what they are telling you this time.
Just once I would love to hear a politician attempt to make their point and sway the hearts and minds of the people WITHOUT lying about the opposition.
