Connecticut Rep. Larson: American people don't care how we pass health care reform

The Right Scoop has the video of Connecticut Representative John Larson explaining that the American people don't really care what parliamentary procedure is used to enact health care legislation.  What breathtaking arrogance:
The epitome of arrogance and quite offensive.

This is exactly why these congressmen will be kicked out in November. They are elitist and all they care about is power and control. For Rep. John Larson to suggest that the American people don’t care what ‘rule’ they use to pass HCR means that he in fact doesn’t care what we think and he doesn’t want us to care about what he’s doing. Just keep drinking your hot chocolate and watching movies. Don’t worry about the tornado that’s heading right for your house. It’ll all be over with soon.

After the year we’ve had with angry town halls and tea parties, there’s no excuse for this comment.

Today on the floor of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan called the Democrats out on this unprecedented assault on the American people and the rule of law:
Last week, – in a stunning and revealing statement – Speaker Pelosi said: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” This is the vaunted transparency the President promised? The arrogance, the paternalism, the condescension this represents is breathtaking.
At best, the Democrats believe they know better than we do.  More likely, they think we are stupid.
