Inhofe admits he値l vote against health care bill without even reading it.

One of the most vociferous opponents of health care reform has been Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK), who previously promoted blocking reform because it would be a 塗uge gain for the GOP. The Oklahoma-based Express-Star reports that Inhofe told a town hall crowd yesterday that he will vote against health reform legislation without even reading it or knowing what痴 in it:

At a town hall meeting Wednesday Sen. Jim Inhofe told Chickasha residents he does not need to read the 1,000 page health care reform bill, he will simply vote against it.

的 don稚 have to read it, or know what痴 in it. I知 going to oppose it anyways, he said.

He went on to tell the crowd we are 殿lmost reaching a revolution in this country due to opposition to health reform. Inhofe is not alone in saying he will vote against any health reform bill. Last week Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) told Fox News that he doesn稚 think a 都ingle Republican will vote for health care reform.
