Weiner makes drinking game out of healthcare debate

As the House slogged through a five-hour marathon of debate on healthcare reform on Wednesday, outspoken Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner (N.Y.) offered viewers at home a guide to the festivities and warned revelers they should enjoy their alcohol responsibly.

“You know, I want to advise people watching at home who are playing that now-popular drinking game ‘You take a shot whenever the Republicans say something that’s not true,’ ” Weiner said. “Please assign a designated driver. This is going to be a long afternoon.”

Weiner said Republicans had lied about the healthcare bill by claiming it would create 130,0000 new agencies as well as “death panels,” among other fibs. Despite Weiner’s claims, the repeal bill easily passed the House.
