Blue Dog Disaster

Filed under: elections — Tags: , , , , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 9:17 am

The Blue Dogs lost big in Congressional races, more than half across the country going down.  As the NC Democratic county chairlady said, “I’d rather have a real Republican than a fake Democrat.”  Five of PA’s congressional delegation have been signed-up members of the Blue Dog Coalition.  Three of those five lost last night: Murphy, Dahlkemper, and Carney.  Now we should work to get rid of Altmire and Holden.

85% Say “Don’t Cut Social Security”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 5:34 am

Our thanks to Beaver County PDA for sending along this article.  Their Congressman, like most Republicans and Blue Dog Democrats, wants to cut the program.  As always, to understand the thinking of those people, look for the money.  Privatizing Social Security would be good for the retirement insurance industry and the Wall Street establishment that owns it.  There is no other reason to privatize.
