Rep Virginia Foxx (R-Crazyfuckingcuntistan) Claims Obama Campaigned on Making Country Worse

For months, Republicans have justified their opposition to real health care reform by claiming that America has the "best health care system in the world." As the argument goes, Congress can make changes to improve the system, but the plans proposed by Democrats could "destroy" what we have now.

Last night, however, Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) suggested that you can't improve something if it's already the "greatest." Speaking on the House floor, Foxx -- herself a recipient of government-run Medicare -- blasted the public insurance option.  Then, she looked back on President Obama's campaign platform of "change" and said, "To me, that meant take what's good about this country and change it into something that's not good."
You may all remember that the president said in his campaign, "We live in the greatest country in the world.  Help me change it." To me, that meant take what's good about this country and change it into something that's not good.
