Inhofe: I'll Vote Against Reform Without Reading Bill

Posted: Updated:

Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) admitted this week that he would vote against health care reform without reading the bill, or knowing what was 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.

"I don't have to read it, or know what's in it. I'm going to oppose it anyways," he said.

Inhofe said he was able to form such a strong, yet uninformed opinion through polls and the media.

Republicans challenged Democrats to read the whole bill this summer -- even though Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell later admitted that he hadn't.

In July, Inhofe said that stalling or blocking health care reform would be a "huge gain" for Republicans in the 2010 election.
