Bill Maher: Americans Are Dumb (When They Oppose Bigger Government)

All Posts No Comments

Alex Tabarrok links to this Bill Maher rant:

Or take the health care debate we’re presently having: members of Congress have recessed now so they can go home and “listen to their constituents.” An urge they should resist because their constituents don’t know anything. At a recent town-hall meeting in South Carolina, a man stood up and told his Congressman to “keep your government hands off my Medicare,” which is kind of like driving cross country to protest highways.

I’m the bad guy for saying it’s a stupid country, yet polls show that a majority of Americans cannot name a single branch of government, or explain what the Bill of Rights is….

Can Bill Maher explain what the Tenth Amendment to the Bill of Rights is?
