Sen. Bayh: I may filibuster health care bill too if it’s not “fiscally responsible.” The public option itself, however, doesn’t seem to be a sticking point for him.
At least he’s consistent. After all, he filibustered the Iraq War because it wasn’t fiscally responsible. . . . oh, wait. Blue Dogs who didn’t bat an eye over paying for the war in Iraq should, at a minimum, have to explain why helping people not die for lack of health care requires penny pinching where blowing up a toothless dictator half a world away did not.
