On Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough puts into cultural context the problem with the House Republicans’ proposed health care bill by invoking a much-beloved episode of The Simpsons in which Bart Simpson prays for a snow day to get out of a test he has not studied for. “Prayer: the last refuge of the truly desperate.” Adds senior contributor Mike Barnicle: “If I were a member of Congress, I would be furious at the Republican leadership. ’How much is this going to be cost?’ They have no answer. If they oppose the leadership, if they oppose the bill, there is a high chance that a lot of them will get primaried, which is their worst fear. This is the position they’ve been put in.” Hear more of the conversation here among Scarborough, Barnicle and The New York Times’ Nick Confessore.
