Florida Lawmaker Says Texas Is Crazy

Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) “did the one thing folks from the Lone Star State do not abide. He messed with Texas,” Roll Call reports.

“During a House Rules Committee hearing Monday on a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the Florida Democrat grew heated in an argument with Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) over states that did not create their own insurance exchanges, which is the subject of a pending Supreme Court case.”

Said Hasting: “Had governors worked with the administration, we might not be in this position. I don’t know about in your state, which I think is a crazy state to begin with – and I mean that just as I said it.”
