Arlen Specter, faced with sure to lose primary fight, changes parties.

The number one job of a bad politician is to get re-elected. (LINK)

Specter was facing a primary fight against Pat Toomey that he was sure to lose. Specter lost public support among Republicans when after telling them  how conservative he was to get re-elected, voted for the 1.1 Trillion dollar stimulus bill without even reading it. That was the bill authorizing the AIG/ Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac bonuses and the RAT board that undermines internal ethics procedures in the executive branch (LINK).

Our take, people who vote for bills without reading them have no place in the GOP.

UPDATE: Specter said a few weeks ago that there is one party rule in Washington and switching parties would just make things worse (LINK). Now he has switched parties. Early reports are that when Specter stepped out of his office and made the announcement the Washington press people cheered.

Rep. Jankowski: Bill is a Trojan Horse for nationalization of healthcare

Posted by iusbvision on April 28, 2009

Nationalized healthcare is a disaster around the rest of the world so why would we want to copy them? We need a unique American solution for our health care problems. Our Government has spent 12.8 Trillion buying up banks while Americans are losing their homes and losing their jobs. They are incompetent.

When the IRS siezed the “Mustang Ranch” brothel in Nevada they could not run it to make a profit and sold it for a fraction of its value (LINK). Does anyone honestly believe that government can run banks, car companies or healthcare and keep costs down? They may artificially keep prices down for a time, but not costs. Washington DC public schools spend $14,000 per year per student and their reading and math conpetency rates from 13%-22% from school to school according to ABC news. The Democrats shut down the $7,500 DC voucher program because the students were excelling and the failed teachers union wanted the money for themselves, this hurting those children (LINK).

Rep. Jan Schakowsky tells the audience that the bill is a Trojan horse for single-payer, and that she’s not interested in waging a “principled fight”, as Verum Serum discovers:

Obama:

How about we listen to someone who has lived under nationalized health care:
