“If you get to the final point and you are a critical vote for health care reform and every piece of evidence tells you if you support the bill you will lose your job, would you cast the vote and lose your job?” CNN’s John King asked Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado on Sunday’s State of the Union.
“Yes,” Bennet bluntly and simply replied.
Granted, that’s the “correct” answer. But there were also a lot of more politically safe ways to answer this. Bennet clearly is stepping up to be effective in Washington.
Kudos to him.
