Senator Smalley is angry

Watch this video.

Apparently, the new healthcare law mandates all sorts of great stuff–like building playgrounds to “encourage” healthy lifestyles.

Jason Mattera asks Senator Al Franken how things like that help to lower healthcare costs, as proponents of reform says it does.  And the larger question–is it the Federal government’s place to mandate these kind of things?

Age has not been good to Al Franken.  He’s obviously a bitter and angry person.  More importantly, he appears to have no clue about what exactly is in the healthcare reform bill.  It’s probably a fair guess that not many Democrats do either.

And yes, at one point Mattera refers to Franken as “Senator Smalley”.  Priceless!
