Earlier Rangel threw down the race card while commenting on the ObamaCare bill stating: "Why do black people have to bargain for what is theirs? Why do we have to wait for the right to vote? Why can't we get what God has given us? And that is the right to live as human beings and not negotiate with white southerners and not court the votes. Just do the right thing," Rangel said. Rangel is absolutely right, it is about doing the right thing. Which is exactly why the majority of Americans are opposed to the bill. When in doubt, play the race card to garner support. This is more of the same typical liberal rhetoric that we can expect from the Al Sharptons, Sonia Sotomayors , and Charlie Rangels of the world...if things don't go your way throw in a race or gender card and you're sure to get your way! As a Hispanic female, their behavior is both disgusting and irritating.
The Washington Post later went on to report the following on Rangel:
Mr. Rangel's amended financial disclosure form, which exposes omissions from his
2002 through 2006 records, is a treasure trove of outrage. He neglected to
report a checking account with the Congressional Federal Credit Union and one
with Merrill Lynch, each valued between $250,000 and $500,000; the tens of
thousands of dollars he's earning from dividends from a number of mutual funds
and stocks; and the money made from the sale of a Harlem townhouse. As a result,
Mr. Rangel's reported net worth doubled, from between $516,015 and $1,316,000 to
between $1,028,024 and $2,495,000.
This is the exact type of character we can expect from the gentleman (and I am using the term very loosely) who runs the Ways and Means Committee. Fabulous.
