The U.S. House of Representatives argued over Obamacare in a rare late-night session Saturday, and the late hour seemed to have a strange effect on at least one congresswoman.
Politico reporter Ginger Gibson tweeted that a few members reeked of alcohol, but it would seem some of them don’t need any liquid courage to make questionable comments.
U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., used a reference to the Bible to make her point against delaying Obamacare. But in paraphrasing Galatians 6:7, she deleted God from the scripture.
“Mr. Speaker, be not deceived. The people are not mocked,” Moore said. “In 24, hours if we don’t send an exact bill back to the Senate, not a colon, not a semi-colon, not a paragraph, not a word different, the government will shut down.”
Moore replaced “God” with “the people.” But she wasn’t done yet.
“This whole debate is a subterfuge and a proxy for a strong desire to bring this nation to its knees,” Moore said, “and to punish the people for electing Barack Obama president of the United States.”
