Uh-oh! Fox News host faults Republicans for wasting their time on futile efforts to repeal Obamacare!

Methinks THIS will trigger demands in some quarters that Chris Wallace be fired from Fox News for daring to speak apostasy:

Fox News’s Chris Wallace challenged House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) and the GOP-controlled House for failing to pass key appropriations before the government runs out of money in September, demanding to know why the party is wasting time holding its 40 Obamacare repeal vote and pursuing other highly partisan partisan measures.

“Rightly or wrongly, none of the bills you passed is going to become law,” Wallace told Cantor on Fox News Sunday. “You have only passed four of 12 appropriations bills you are supposed to pass. We face a government shut down in the fall. Is this the best time to spend your time, passing bills that won’t become law?”

Cantor responded by accusing President Obama of delivering campaign speeches and failing to consider measures the House has already voted on. But Wallace wouldn’t hear it, reminding Cantor that the GOP couldn’t advance a comprehensive Farm Bill and had to pull a transportation funding measure after moderate House Republicans balked at its deep cuts. “Why not do what the House is supposed to do?” he pressed.

    How annoying Wallace comes up with a question and Cantor makes a statement related to something else. If Cantor was on the witness stand he would be found in contempt.

    Steverino – Politicians of all sides do this all the time. I’ve seen hundreds of interviews where Democrats do the same thing. But you’re missing the point. there is an increasing number of people even on the right which are getting tired of Congress wasting time, money, and resources. We don’t like ObamaCare. Everyone knows this. But this 40+ votes to repeal it is getting excessive.

    president Obama has readily admitted there are several parts of the bill even he doesn’t like. instead of wasting everyone’s time and money, Republicans should be more focused on eliminating all the stuff that moderates Democrats don’t like. that would be a much smarter approach than this all or nothing approach.

  3. He should have read it before he signed it.

    You’re right Nef there’s a huge groundswell of folks disturbed and upset with the ACA and government spending. Might want to check outside the bubble now and then.
