What Is Sensenbrenner Saying?

Do you notice that there's no "there" in Sensenbrenner's words?

A U.S. default on its debts would be more harmful to Americans than the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) said Sunday.

But it's appropriate to link the health care law and the nation's debt as lawmakers lock horns on boosting the nation's borrowing authority, he said at a town hall meeting Sunday in his congressional district.

"The two issues are going to be dealt with together," Sensenbrenner said. "We can't be increasing the debt ceiling without addressing the causes of why we are borrowing money. And Obamacare is an expensive new entitlement program."

What does that mean? 

We already know that it doesn't mean "de-funding."  And delaying--the current gambit--won't change the price tag.

Maybe one of the RadioMouths will squeeze Somnolent Sensenbrenner hard and get a bit of definition here.
