Heard on the campaign trail…

Recent newspaper articles point to something  interesting in the positions taken by some politicians running for office in November. You might be interested in hearing those positions.

 “As a career prosecutor, I made decisions on facts, not politics,” and that’s why “I voted against . . . the health-care bill.”

A Republican, you ask?  No, Congressman Frank Kratovil (D. Md.)

[I] voted against massive government health care.

That from Congressman Bobby Bright (D. Al.)

[I] voted against the “trillion-dollar health-care plan“.

That from Stephanie Herseth Sandlin (D. S.D.).

Not only is ObamaCare “financially devastating,”  it is “the greatest failure, modern failure, of political leadership in my lifetime.”

Those words belong to Roy Barnes (D. Ga.)

I’ve had to say no far more than I’ve said yes. I’ve said no to more government spending, no to President Obama’s big health-care plan…standing up to what’s wrong in Washington is right for Idaho.

The author of those words is Congressman Walt Minnick (D. Id.)

And, finally, this, from an ad run by Congressman Jason Altmire (D. Pa.):

You saw when he voted against health care…[h]e’s not afraid to stand up to the President.

Yes, those are the words of only six Democrats running for office.  But, I haven’t heard any Democrats extolling the virtues of Obamacare in their effort to be elected to Congress.  Well, perhaps Congressman Barney Frank (D. Ma.) is, but, as I don’t live in his district, I don’t know.
