It sounds like Howard Dean really got under the skin of some people:
Liberal Sen. Jay Rockefeller denounced Howard Dean’s call for the Senate healthcare bill to be axed as “nonsense and irresponsible.”
Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) and the White House both fired back at Dean on Wednesday for saying that liberals should kill the Senate bill.
“I don’t know what piece of legislation he’s reading,” White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters Wednesday. “I don’t think any rational person would say killing a bill makes a whole lot of sense at this point.”
Rockefeller and the White House sure didn’t go after Lieberman this hard, and Lieberman is the one who has hurt healthcare the most. Now why is that?
