So-called Obamacare “architect” Jonathan Gruber was called to testify at a Tuesday House regarding his past controversial remarks about the creation and passage of the health care law. While many of the testy exchanges that occurred during the hearing were covered and even trumpeted by conservative media, a furious Mark Levin said the exercise was pointless.
“The very Republicans grilling this guy don’t plan to do a damn thing about Obamacare! They’re not going to use the power of the purse to control any piece of it!” Levin shouted on the air.
“So, what is the point of a hearing? The point of a hearing is supposed to be so you are informing yourself to make legislative decisions — they are not going to make any legislative decisions. They’ve surrendered! They’re funding it!”
Levin said he refuses to “make heroes out of these members of Congress who asked great questions, who made great arguments — and then they are actually going to vote to fund this crap!”
The conservative radio host went on to call the congressional hearing a “charade” and “preposterous.”
“They hold a hearing to show further how outrageous this law is, how abusive its architect was. And they can’t even persuade themselves to step up to the plate and do something about it,” he added.
Later in his program, Levin offered GOP some free advice.
“Republicans need to run on law and order, national security and securing the border,” Levin said. “They will win the heart and soul of the Democrat party. They will win Pennsylvania, they will win Ohio, they will win Michigan and states they thought they couldn’t win.”
