Pelosi Owens

(Update: Traffic from Drudge appears to have crashed the linked site, if the link doesn’t work, try again later.)

That’s gotta be record-breaking dishonesty, even from the notoriously dishonest Democrat party.  Brand-spanking new Democrat congressman, Bill  Owens (NY-23) has broken at least FOUR campaign promises in his very first hour!

Owens told voters he did not believe a public option was appropriate, he said he was opposed to cuts in Medicare, he said he was opposed to taxing health care benefits, and said he was opposed to increasing taxes on the middle class.

But now that he has been sworn in, this new weasel among weasels has pledged to vote for the Pelosi bill, which:

  1. contains a public option.
  2. cuts Medicare.
  3. taxes benefits, and
  4. increases taxes on the middle class!

That’s four campaign promises broken in his very first hour!  When dealing with a group as reliably dishonest as the Democrat party, it’s hard to plumb new depths of dishonesty, but congratulations NY-23! Your new congressman may have set a new record!

Update: Ace has Owens statement of support for the bill.

Nancy Pelosi breaks pledge to put final health care bill online 72 hours before vote.

She doesn’t WANT Americans to be able to read about the vast amount of power she is going to assert over them, the vast amount of money she is going to steal from them, or the vast amounts of liberties this bill will destroy. She is changing America from a nation of people with a government to a government with a people. She is intentionally regulating the private health care industry out of business, so that as then candidate Obama promised, in 5 to 10 years, all Americans will be forced onto government run health care, which Democrats believe people will elect them to control. And that’s what it’s all about. They don’t care about your health. They blocked amendments that would make them have the same care. They care about power and control.

Have you called your representatives yet?

They intend to vote on this biggest-power-grab in American history by Saturday. Make sure you tell your representatives what you think of it. If you are ready to work to defeat anyone who votes for it, be sure you tell them that.

Particularly if your representatives are on this list of targeted, vulnerable Democrats. Call, get your family and friends to call. Blue Dog Democrats are starting to truly worry about their jobs after Tuesday’s election results — tell them they are right to worry. Polls show  that a large majority of Americans do not want this bill, and they feel very strongly about it, much more strongly than the minority of Americans who support it. Call often!

My congressman is already voting against it, so I have called vulnerable Democrats in neighboring districts to tell them that if they vote for this bill I will come volunteer in their districts to make certain they lose their jobs.

This is the last chance to kill the bill in the house. I hope everyone will call!
