The state Senate Democratic Caucus are calling some state officials hypocrites when it comes to health care reform.
Senator Brad Hutto and others are having a press conference Wednesday at 11:15 a.m. Hutto says:
The hyprocracy of those people who are receiving government supported or taxpayer supported health care, and then railing against other people receiving it, when you have a situation in which people are saying, “This is horrible.” Yet, they personally, or for their families are receiving the same benefits that they’re railing against, from the governor down to elected members of the House and Senate and our congressional delegation.
The four newest members of Congress have chosen to go with the federal health care plan while voting to defund it.
Hutto continued, “You can buy it for yourself on the open market, as they advocate apparently for everyone else in South Carolina, except themselves -hypocrisy plain and simple.”
Senator Brad Hutto and other Democrats will talk about that today in the press conference.
