HA! Turncoat Arlen Specter is being grilled by his PA. constituents today in a town hall meeting viewable on cable news. Remember, he's the Republican-recently-turned-Democrat who never met a liberal social issue he couldn't support.
Boy, are the voters mad at him!! and giving him WHAT FOR about: the healthcare plan; bailing out GM; not telling us who writes the bills; not reading the bills before voting; federal access to our bank accounts; threatening our pensions (with inflation and taxation), and Obama's biggest deficit authorization in American history --and passing the debt on to our children.
Someone asked him how come we tax-payers had to bail out GM for making cars nobody wants. (Well, actually, I like my '95 Caddy and the '04 GMC van.)
You almost had to feel sorry for the elderly senator facing the very angry folks. I hope he's up for re-election? I think the GOP may re-gain his seat --having never elected this guy as a democrat in the first place.
Heh heh. Feels good to see the shoe of persecution for imperfection on the other party's foot!
Problems aren't simple. There are no easy answers. But unfortunately, federal gov't with both parties is headed in the wrong direction. The Feds need to return power --and money --to the people --who, in America, have made for prosperity for the most people --while still caring for the needy.
But there is something wrong with the American work ethic and greed at all ends of the labor-management-board spectrum. We need to restore integrity and sound fiscal policy to American business and the workplace. As it is, both union bosses and corp.administrators are enamored with luxury outings, company cars, perks galore.
