Remember Those Red District ObamaCare Socialists in 2012
Red Meat Conservative ^ | 01/19/11 | Daniel

Posted on 01/19/2011 5:03:29 PM PST by red meat conservative

Thankfully, the Republican controlled House just passed the repeal of Obamacare by a 245-189 margin.  Three Democrats; Mike Ross (AR), Dan Boren (OK), and Mike McIntyre (NC), joined every Republican in support of repeal.  This means that 10 of the remaining 13 Democrats who voted against Obama Care to win reelection last year, showed their true colors by opposing repeal.

Here are the ten Democrat turncoats:

Ben Chandler ( Ky.), John Barrow ( Ga.) Heath Schuler ( N.C.), Larry Kissell ( N.C.), Stephen Lynch ( Mass.), Jason Altmire ( Pa.), Tim Holden ( Pa.), Collin Peterson ( Minn), Dan Lipinski ( Ill.) and Jim Matheson ( Utah).

If we include the other Democrats who represent R rated districts (Cook PVI) but supported ObamaCare from the beginning, that number increases by another 6, for a total of 16:

Jerry McNerney (CA) Joe Donnelly (IN) Tim Walz (Minn) Bill Owens (NY) Mark Critz (PA) Nick Rahall (WV)

These 16 Democrats must be targeted for their disingenuous conservative talk at home, as they vote with the radical left in DC.  It looks like their symbolic vote against Nancy Pelosi was nothing more than window dressing.  Let's end the blue dog and pony show and defeat these clowns in 2012.

You can say there are Rats in GOP areas, but you would be wrong. If they were GOP districts they would have flipped in ‘10.

The only guy of the 6 listed who is going to lose his seat is Critz. We lost a Rep in PA due to the census. His gerrymandered seat is going away for sure. It will be sucked up by all the “R’s” surrounding it.

Thank you. Saving these names for future reference. I’ll be sending some money to their Republican opponents in ‘12.

House Dem compares GOP health care case to Nazi propaganda

Say What? Democrat Compares Republicans to Nazis

ABC News Jonathan Karl reports: The newfound civility didn’t last long. Political rhetoric in Congress doesn’t get much nastier than the words of one House Democrat during the debate on repealing the health care law.

In an extraordinary outburst on the House floor, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) invoked the Holocaust to attack Republicans on health care and compared rhetoric on the issue to the work of infamous Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

“They say it’s a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like Goebbels,” Cohen said. “You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually, people believe it. Like blood libel. That’s the same kind of thing. And Congressman Cohen didn’t stop there.

“The Germans said enough about the Jews and people believed it—believed it and you have the Holocaust. We heard on this floor, government takeover of health care. Politifact said the biggest lie of 2010 was a government takeover of health care because there is no government takeover,” Cohen said.
Cohen made his comments late last night, but they have attracted no attention because his speech was made to a virtually empty House chamber with no reporters around to watch.

CA will have its seats drawn by a multipartisan commission next time out. All bets are off for now.

IN - Republicans control the process - Donnelly didn’t win by much (48-47); the district could be redrawn to make it a lot harder for him.

MN - Walz didn’t win by much (50-44), but probably safe.

NY - Owens didn’t win by much (48-46) but should be favored next time out.

WV - Rahall won 55-45; Cook’s index weights presidential elections too heavily.
