Greta Van Susteren Facilitates Sen. Hatch’s Attacks On Health Care Bill

Reported by Ellen - February 4, 2011 -

Greta Van Susteren may actually be a Democrat in real life but she does a darned good job of playing a GOP operative on TV. In this interview with Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) Wednesday night (2/2/11), she couldn’t seem to find a good word to say about the health care bill. Even worse, she fed Hatch talking points about repealing the provision about filing 1099’s and complained, “No one bothered to read the statute… so now this mad scramble (to repeal the provision) when I assume you could be attending to other business.” For good measure, she added, “You’re now trying to fix something that’s been declared unconstitutional in Florida.” Although she later noted that another court had decided otherwise, she sided with Hatch that the case should be fast-tracked to the Supreme Court and never challenged any of Hatch’s contention that the bill is unconstitutional.
