Graham blasts Axelrod: ‘Tired of this crap’


Well, Mr Turncoat Lindsey Graham, you dance with the devil, you play the devil’s tune.  How is all that Southern charm a workin? You want Immigration, you want Cap and Trade? You just keep on smiling.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) was not happy with David Axelrod’s dismissal of Republican healthcare arguments this morning, calling it “crap.”

Appearing before Graham on ABC’s “This Week,” Axelrod had brushed off Sen. Scott Brown’s (R-Mass.) criticism of healthcare reform, saying that Brown had voted for a very similar package for his home state of Massachusetts.

“Senator Brown comes from a state that has a healthcare plan that’s similar to the one we’re trying to enact here,” Axelrod said. “We’re just trying to give the rest of America the same opportunities that the people of Massachusetts have.”

That argument rubbed Graham the wrong way.

“The American people are getting tired of this crap,” Graham said of Axelrod’s comments. “No way in the world is what they did in Massachusetts like what we’re about to do in Washington.”

The reform package passed in Massachusetts did include a health insurance exchange and individual mandates, similar to what Democrats have proposed on the naitonal level. But Graham said the key differences lie in how the package was paid for and what the secondary effects would be.

“They didn’t cut Medicare when they passed the bill in Massachusetts,” Graham said. “They didn’t raise $500 billion on the American people when they passed the bill in Massachusetts.”
