Florida Democrat Alcee L. Hastings calls Texans "crazy people" for failing to implement the ACA for the Texas' poor, and refuses to apologize. Typical outrage ensues...

February 4, 2015

Florida Democratic Congressman Alcee Hastings boldly called Texans (meaning the Republican-led government) 'crazy' people prior to the most ridiculous 56th vote to repeal Obamacare. Yesterday, he tweeted about it.

Steve Doocy, aka Stevie La Douce (his guest's words), interviewed "songwriter, singer and political observer," Larry Gatlin who, of course, objected to the Democratic Congressman's comments. He thinks it's just fine that Texas is crapping on its poor by denying millions healthcare, as he too is a Republican.

Doocy explains how Texans are reacting. 'Don't Mess With Texas', the delegation from Texas tells Hastings. They asked him to apologize and Hastings said,

"You will wait until Hell freezes over for me to say anything in an apology."

Gatlin, the most respected member of society (he labels himself, because he's a "musician") quotes Johnny Cash, Socrates or some guy, "Take me to those who write your songs, because they will not lie." He's definitely the go-to guy who tells the dog's honest truth; he's from Texas, he's white and he has a guitar.

Gatlin is not at all disparaging, as he claims that the Florida citizens who elected "Debbie Waterfowl What's-Her-Name" are lacking credibility. He also explained that the lowest turnout of voters in a midterm in 70 years is a "mandate." He's filled with all sorts of disdain for all liberals and thinks that winning an argument with a Democrat will get you labeled a "racist," and it doesn't mean Conservatives are ever wrong.

He persisted through the segment with his assumption that opponents of Obamacare can't possibly be racist, and Democrats feel this way because a good percentage of the poor are minorities, but that's irrelevant. He concluded the Texas-style, liberal-bashing interview with:

"If he (Hastings) had all the tea in China, he still wouldn't be in the top 100 richest people in Texas. God Bless Texas. Bye y'all."

Yep, the people who run Texas are just good, kind-hearted Christians who should never be questioned when they are treating poor people like second-class citizens. Duly noted, thanks La Douce and Gatlin!
