Senator Whitehouse has his head farther up his ass than most of the shitwit congresscritters. In an age where YouTube keeps showing these asswipes for who they are (and keeps the video archived where it's easily found), he slanders pretty much two-thirds of the American public (that being the percentage of the citizenry that opposes mandatory Medicaid). "During a floor speech, he excoriated Senate GOP members for up holding the pending health care bill and accused their supporters of being birthers and fanatics in right-wing militia and Aryan support groups."
There's a transcript and video link of the good senator's name-calling in the story link.
