Remember those hoary days of yesteryear, those days when Democrats puffed themselves up as "the party of the people," of that "party of the common man"? Flash forward to 2010 and we find that those stalwart homespun congressmen, born of the people have set a policy to avoid those "people," the voters, at all costs.

Democrats should be reminding everyone about the tax hikes, the Socialized Medicine, the surrendering of the country to terrorists, the upcoming Amnesty bill, etc.
DailyKos tells me these are the winning issues of 2010. :)
Wait until those tax cuts sunset in 2011.
