In a discussion of the Health Insurance Industry Fair Competition Act, apparently speaking on Rep. Peter DeFazio’s (D.-OR) time, Weiner laughs and says, “You know, you gotta love these Republicans. You guys have chutzpah.”
Then Weiner yells that the Republican Party “are a wholly owned subsidiary of the insurance industry.” Some discussion is heard offscreen, which we thought was Republicans asking for the Yiddish to be translated, but after Weiner bounces around yelling for a while and then repeats the subsidiary charge, Rep. Daniel Lundgren (R.-CA) demands he withdraw the remarks.
Weiner says, “You really don’t want to go here, Mr. Lundgren,” The chair sends Weiner to the penalty box.
