It’s the August recess and that means it’s Town Hall Season. And this is what happens when a Republican representative, in this case Rep. Robert Pittenger (R-NC), descends upon the village and tells the villagers that he is not going to vote for Senator Mike Lee’s Obamacare Hostage Act.
Note: This video was edited by a Tea Party group, not a liberal group, to make it more ominous.
The key exchange:
Pittenger: Do you think Harry Reid is going to pass that in the Senate?
Village Rube: It doesn’t matter.
Yeah. It doesn’t matter. Fuck actually governing. Yeehaw! We should primary Robert Pittenger the next time he’s up for reelection. We don’t need more RINOs, right? We need someone who will stand up for “conservative values,” as the lady in the video said, by holding the entire federal government hostage.
Those two things — conservative values and hostage taking — are more or less synonymous at this point.
