Get Rid of Blue Dog Democrats
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same."--Ronald Reagan
We are told that the Blue Dog Democrats are moderate; willing to work with Republicans to get through legislation important to the American people. Well, here are some interesting facts:
The "Blue Dog" coalition was formed after the Republicans took the majority in 1994. Blue Dogs were self described as loyal but conservative Democrats who had turned blue as a result of their party's economic policies.
The Blue Dog voting record show members voting with Nancy Pelosi on economic issues 80% of the time.
*EVERY member of the Blue Dog Coalition voted for the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac bailouts.
*63% voted for the $700 billion TARP Program.
*73% voted for the auto bailout.
*54% voted for the Obamacare bill.
*74% voted for President Obama's budget (which tripled the
debt in 2010).
The idea of a fiscally conservative "Blue Dog" Democrat is a clever attempt to fool voters into re-electing 54 vulnerable Democrats this election cycle.
It is time for real change in Washington, D.C. No more rubber stamping the Obama agenda that Americans are so strongly against. No more deal making in back rooms and meetings behind closed doors to strong arm those who want to do the right thing and side with the merican people against the far left agenda of Team Obama.
Vote them out.
