'The View': Guess where Elisabeth Hasselbeck stands on health care reform
The ladies of "The View" had another one of those mornings on Tuesday (March 23) when they attempted to navigate those murky health care reform waters.
After bringing up the politcians' questionable behavior during the debate, Whoopi Goldberg was bleeped several times for quoting politicians who used racist and homophobic slurs.
"Never is that justified, ever," Elisabeth Hasselbeck said. "It's despicable to see that from those that are elected officials." While she agreed that the outbursts were filled with "ignorance and hatred," Hasselbeck didn't hesitate to criticize the health-care reform bill.
"I think when you look at the numbers, it was a 219-212 vote. If you take out those that were bribed, bullied, and shut-out, this would have never passed," Hasselbeck insisted, despite Whoopi's protests that the issue at hand wasn't the result of the vote, but the behavior of the voters.
"The president thinks he's smarter than the majority of Americans," Hasselbeck said. "This is changing the landscape of America. Anything that is a mandate is a problem."
"Like insurance with your car?" Whoopi asked.
Forget their two cents -- "The View" panel can always be counted on to throw their entire bank accounts at the issue.
