Cant-spell?: Dem Sen Uses Misspelled Poster to Bash GOP on Health Care
A Democratic senator using large posters to illustrate her opposition to the Republicans' plan to repeal ObamaCare failed to notice a colorful spelling error on her placard.
Senator Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) displayed a poster that read "JUNK INSURANCE" and said that she wanted to prevent cuts to Medicare and Medicaid.
However, when she moved on to the next poster, it contained a somewhat glaring error.
The placard that followed read "WAR ON MEDICAD" (sic) in bright yellow letters.
Cantwell appeared not to notice as she stood next to the easel and said Republicans' plan would throw many people off of their health care plans.
Cantwell's Democratic colleague Tim Kaine of Virginia also spoke during the session, claiming Republicans will cause a trillion dollars to be cut from Medicaid.
He was apparently referring to Pennsylvania Sen. Patrick Toomey's (R) plan to slow the growth of the program by a reduction in number of future enrollees.
"If we're going to do this, we've got to ask states to pay their fair share," Toomey told Mike Emanuel.
