Senator Vitter Says The Budget Process Review Process Too Short
US Senator David Vitter visited 'Mornings With Ken and Bernie' today and discussed a brief appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel Show where he a group of other Senators and Congressmen read some of the hate Tweets they've received.
The Senator also discussed the the $1.1 trillion compromise budget working it's way through Congress. According to Senator Vitter,
I'm trying to read through it and understand it. Of course it's one of these huge documents. Unbelievably long and we'll probably have two days to digest it all. It's the sort of process that has to change around here. This leads to bad government all the time because inevidently there are going to be things hidden in there that aren't fully understood one week or two weeks down the road at least.
We noted that a vote would come on the budget with only a 72 hour review and Senator Vitter said,
We saw how sound a process that is in the case of Obamacare. If that is not a lesson for Washington to take to heart and to correct the situation in terms of process nothing is.
Senator Vitter went on to discuss Obamacare and noted that we've gotten past the point where failures to sign up aren't the problem. Now Vitter said,
Folks are realizing that this is really flawed at it's core. It's not a matter of a website issue. It's not a matter of 'roll out' issue. It's really flawed at it's core because the provision that prevents folks in many, many cases from keeping the plan they have, they want to keep or keeping their doctor, isn't some oversight, isn't some mistake, it's part of Obamacare at it's core. I think people are figuring that out and you can tell that by the numbers.
