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.
