Conservative Talk: What did they say?
Mona Charen | Inevitable Decline?
Throughout the past year of debate on health care reform, the conservative fear and the liberal hope were identical — that passage of a huge new entitlement program would prove irreversible. “No one now dares touch Social Security or Medicare” crow the Democrats, and it will be the same with Obamacare.

We need to make a point of defeating these traitors in 2010! That is what democracy is for.

These deceitful men and women voted “no” when their votes didn’t count in November of 2009, seeking to fool us into believing that they had our interests at heart. But, when push came to shove and their votes counted, they switched and ran their true colors up the flagpole and voted yes. Read the entire article HERE.
