Rep. Pete Stark: Blue Dog Dems are “brain dead”

According to Congressman Pete Stark (D-CA), the reason the moderate blue dogs are opposed to or are working to change the House health care bill is because they are “brain dead,” looking for campaign contributions from insurance companies, and are promoting “a right-wing agenda.”

Stark made the comments during a conference call today with reporters, which was hosted by the ultra-liberal Campaign for America’s Future.  According to an Associated Press piece, Stark’s specific words were:

They’re for the most part, I hate to say, brain dead, but they’re just looking to raise money from insurance companies and promote a right-wing agenda that is not really very useful in this whole process.”
