Tulsa's answer to a potted plant—Rep. John Sullivan—is out with his latest "Constituent Issue Survey" and it's more of the same claptrap we've come to expect from the First District congressman.
That's right, Sooner fans, Sullivan is still trying to whip up more outrage over the president's health care reform plan.
That's the same health plan that—heavens!—requires insurance companies to cover pre-exisitng conditions. And the one that extended coverage to millions of young adults. And the one that required insurance companies to spend 80 percent of their revenues on actual treatment, not administrative costs.
But that's not all. Oh no.
Sullivan is still pushing simple-sounding solutions to complex problems. So he's pushing a balanced budget amendment, a "solution" likely to undermine the Social Security and Medicare benefits so many of his older constituents depend on.
He's also beating another right-wing dead horse, claiming—without evidence, of course—that "excessive government regulations that prevent businesses from adding jobs."
Of course, all Rush-listening conservatives know this is true, never mind the fact that private sector hiring has been rising for many months now.
But who needs pesky facts, anyway? They just get in the way of Sullivan's partisan nonsense.
