Quote of the Day: Repealing Obamacare is Bipartisan, Baby

From the après-revolución celebration of the House vote defunding Obamacare:

"It wasn't just a group of Republicans," said Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, "but it was a bipartisan vote. Let me state that again, because I want make sure you write it correctly." His colleagues, who have becomes experts at forcing McCarthy to whip a conservative bill instead of a compromise that can pass, laughed and applauded. "It was a bipartisan vote!"

Roger that. The bill passed with 230 votes. A grand total of two of those votes came from Democrats, both of whom voted against Obamacare in the first place. That's bipartisan, baby!
