Key Democrat: You're with us or you're 'brain dead'

Arrogant, bullies.

WASHINGTON (AP) - A key House liberal suggested Thursday that party moderates who've pushed for changes in health care legislation are "brain dead" and out for insurance company campaign donations.

Moderate Blue Dog Democrats "just want to cause trouble," said Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., who heads the health subcommittee on the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee.

"They're for the most part, I hate to say, brain dead, but they're just looking to raise money from insurance companies and promote a right-wing agenda that is not really very useful in this whole process," Stark told reporters on a conference call.

Your with us or your an idiot.  Looks like debate hasn't really opened up much. Debate is not name calling, it's not bullying.  It's about discussing objectives, competing plans and the merits, drawbacks and specifics of each.  Maybe I'm wrong but I just don't see that coming from Rep. Stark.

UPDATE: Confirmed - I'm not wrong.  Source: reality.
