It’s crunch time on health care reform and Rep. Loretta Sanchez – the Orange County delegation’s only Democrat – was reviewing the final house proposal on Thursday, making sure it saves the money she wants it to and will make a difference for people in her district.
“I need to know if we can afford it,” said Sanchez, one of a group of cost-conscious Blue Dog members who have been waiting for the Congressional Budget Office to give lawmakers its estimate on what the bill will cost and what it will save. Sanchez voted yes on the House bill last year.
Who is she kidding? Loretta will tow the line as she has all the time for the Dems. The headline to this was "Sanchez studying" which made me laugh as I know people who grew up with her and they all agree, she's as thick as a plank. I can concur because the few times I have been in her presence, I have never been disappointed in how inappropriately she dresses, how shrill she sounds as she speaks, and how she will say things ill-befitting a public figure, like that one lunch she spoiled for me when all she could do was loudly bith about her lack of a love life in Washington DC.
I didn't even get her Christmas card this year, because she emailed it out to be "green" and I am not on the vting rolls as Democrat. I also thought that was funny because a large number of her constituents are low-income Latinos who likely don't have a computer.
