In yet another episode of “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” we learn that Mark Warner is still a right-wing douchebag!
Sen. Mark Warner is hoping to form a bipartisan, bicameral post-Gang of Six group to pressure the already bipartisan, bicameral supercommittee to “go big or go home,” his spokesman told POLITICO Thursday.
The Virginia Democrat, who first spoke of his vague plan during a Virginia Beach meeting Wednesday of the local Filipino American Community Action Group, said his new group would build on the efforts of the Gang of Six, a group of which he was a member.
“I’m not going to give up the fight. This problem is not going to go away,” Warner said, the Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk reported.
Warner spokesman Kevin Hall said Thursday the idea is for the nascent group to serve as a cheerleading corps for the 12-member supercommittee “to speak out to encourage the new supercommittee to ‘go big, or go home.’” Hall said Warner has not developed details of the new group, which he called a “very preliminary concept.”
Warner told the group Wednesday that “$2.2 trillion is not enough” deficit reduction and warned that any new plan will likely include both more taxes and higher fees for services like the Tricare military health care plan.
Yeah, because I was just thinking the men and women in the military haven’t quite sacrificed enough! Or at least, nowhere near as much as the amazing millionaire ($65M to $238M) Mark Warner.
