Senator Jay Rockefeller (D, WV) had this to say, while in a carefully nearly empty Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation committee hearing and with (equally carefully) only a single Republican present:
I think it’s very important to take a long view at what’s going on here. I’ll be able to dig up some e-mails that make part of the Affordable Care Act that doesn’t look good, especially from people who’ve made up their mind that they don’t want it to work, because they don’t like the president—maybe he’s the wrong color, something of that sort.
I’ve seen a lot of that, and I know a lot of that to be true….
Of course, Rockefeller, with equal care, has chosen not to produce any of those emails, and he has chosen, again with equal care, to produce none of what he claims to have seen.
In the end, only a racist will manufacture a racist complaint where there is no racism involved. Especially when he knows there is no racism is involved, but merely is desperate to change the subject away from the myriad Progressive failures in the Senate.
