New York congressman Anthony Weiner laid into the GOP's attitude in health care in a fiery diatribe on the House floor. "You gotta love these Republicans," Weiner said. "I mean, you guys have chutzpah. The Republican Party is a wholly owned subsidiary of insurance companies." Offended GOP Rep. Dan Lungren only got an encore when he asked the Democrat to withdraw the remarks, notes New York.

"How much time do I have remaining?" Weiner asked after agreeing to retract his previous words. "Make no mistake about it," he said, enunciating clearly, "every single Republican I have ever met in my entire life is a wholly owned subsidiary of the insurance industry." Weiner was unapologetic about the remarks in a Daily Kos post afterward, which, CQ Politics notes, also contained a plea for donations and a link to a fundraising page.
