Letter to the Editor
Thursday, Aug. 22, 2013, 8:55 p.m.
 

Albert Einstein once said insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. What, U.S. Rep. Tim Murphy, did you expect after the first three attempts at repealing ObamaCare went nowhere? What did you expect after 30 attempts?

Do you know the repeal attempts cost $22.6 million, based on the Congressional Budget Office's figure of $565,000 for how much it costs to run Congress for a day? So basically, Congressman Murphy, you just wasted over $22 million for what?

We understand you and your colleagues don't like ObamaCare; we understood that 35 votes ago. Is this a responsible way to spend taxpayers' money? You must think so, because you keep voting on it.

In any of these 40 attempts, have you or your colleagues offered us an alternative? Have you turned to your colleagues and said, “Enough's enough”?

So my question is: Can Murphy be recalled, based on his proven insanity?
