This Week With George Stephanopoulos - October 25, 2009

October 25, 2009
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO)
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)
Stephanopoulos: Mitch can Harry Reid finally kill a GOP filibuster of health care reform?

McConnell: yes his plan to kill grandchildren is working

Stephanopoulos: private insurers are killing small businesses so why not have a public option?

McConnell: [laughing] hell no the government should not be in the health insurance business

Stephanopoulos: so you want to rid of Medicare?

McConnell: [chuckling] look the American people don’t want this bill

Stephanopoulos: but the polls say that everyone in America hates you

McConnell: sure people are disaffected but we’ll see how the American people feel when some rednecks vote in Virginia

Stephanopoulos: so you really believe everything is going fine in the Republican party?

McConnell: absolutely - all the nervousness is on the Democratic side

Stephanopoulos: wow

Stephanopoulos: Claire can we fix health care or do should do what the GOP wants

McCaskill: these so-called deficit hawks should be the first to want to reform the health care system

Stephanopoulos: will people be forced to buy insurance at an insurance exchange or gun show?

McCaskill: no only Congress and the Irish will have to

Stephanopoulos: what exactly is the public option?

McCaskill: oh we’ll have only kinds of votes - opt-in, opt-out, triggers, mandatory gay abortions, human-animal hybrid baby Einsteins…

Stephanopoulos: President Snowe will only accept a public option which doesn’t exist

McCaskill: We’re very very concerned about giving President Snowe whatever she wants

Stephanopoulos: so how do you get GOP votes?

McCaskill: we need to get votes from moderates like Snowe and right-wing nuts like Evan Bayh

Stephanopoulos: ok

[ break ]

Stephanopoulos: George will there be a public option?

Will: the media are cleverly trying to trick American into thinking if 60 Senators vote for something that means it will pass

Podesta: the health care costs are hurting small businesses!

Hunt: Snowe is from Maine which means she is honest

Stephanopoulos: oh

Hunt: she hates the public option and no bill without her can pass because the Democrats can’t play games and just pass a vote with 60 Democrats - that’s a terrible idea

Stephanopoulos: of course

Ingraham: the America people suddenly remembered after 30 years of GOP spending that they are worried about the debt and also the Democrats will kill their grandchildren

Tucker: Maybe Snowe can allow the public option get an up or down vote and then she can vote against it if she wants

Will: all bills should be on the Internet

Hunt: we should give liberals the trigger option to shut them up

Stephanopoulos: Should we cut executive pay to a salary of a mere $500,000

Podesta: well why not?

Will: they should get paid as low-level civil servants nothing more

Ingraham: The GOP philosophy is that people on welfare should make millions of dollars

Hunt: some say that people who destroyed America shouldn’t get rich off that - but those are just childish pitchfork populists

Tucker: the Bailout Boys had their entire industry bailed out and frankly they shouldn’t even make $500,000 for god’s sake!

Stephanopoulos: Controversy!
