Health Care Reform = Democrats' 'Ishtar'

On the Roundtable, Republican political strategist Torie Clarke said recent actions from Democrats on health care reform could find parallels from the 1987 comedy film “Ishtra.”

CLARKE: “Do you guys remember the movie Ishtar? Warren Beatty, Dustin Hoffman, they spent millions and millions and millions of dollars on it you heard so much about it and when people actually started seeing it they said that this is terrible. I think the longer it hangs out there the harder it is. Politically republicans and democrats are looking to say the best thing that could happen to the democrats is to pass this. They pass this and say oh we got it done after 60 years and then they have to defend it from now until November and I think it will be very tough to defend a lot of things inside that bill.”
