Harkin told the Iowa media -- Well I may be ignorant, but not willfully so.
We wholeheartedly agree with him on the first part of the sentence, and the scientific community is united in that fact, but not so much on the second, he is a politician after all.
This all came about because of CommieTommie's questioning whether the Obama administration had legal authority to order a year’s delay in a requirement that large employers provide health insurance to their full-time workers.
Harkin told reporters this isn’t the first time in his 39-year career in congress that he’s disagreed with the way Democrats or Republicans in the executive branch implement a law.
Again we agree, as Harkin had a hissy in April over $15 Billion in the prevention trust fund that was diverted to pay for the federal health insurance exchange.
Then Harkin had said -- “Everyone went in with their eyes open. It’s not fair for this administration to now start to undo what we agreed to do when we passed the bill.”
That's why we think CommieTommie's somewhat suspect on his "not willfully so" argument.
