    Liberals Try to Rekindle Town Hall Fury That Inflamed Health Care Debate Read more:

    Democrats still scarred over the town hall fury that inflamed the health care debate two summers ago and came to symbolize the unpopularity of that legislation are hoping Republicans suffer a similar fate over their deficit-reduction plan that would revamp social safety-net programs.
    Democratic lawmakers and their liberal supporters are trying to ignite a storm of protest at town hall meetings being held by Republicans during the current congressional recess that they hope will give them momentum going into the 2012 presidential election season.

    So Astroturfing?

    MoveOn last week reportedly urged its members to turn out at town halls and ask Republicans about plans to cut Medicare and Medicaid.

    Oh and scare tactics!

    Americans United for Change, a D.C.-based liberal group, has unleashed robo-calls in 23 Republican-held districts. The group has also targeted four lawmakers in particular with TV ads: Ryan and Reps. Sean Duffy of Wisconsin; Chip Cravaack of Minnesota and Steve King of Iowa.
    In a statement, Tom McMahon, the group's executive director, asked, "What are Republicans in Congress thinking, demanding that our most vulnerable citizens make more sacrifices but millionaires and big corporations to make less?"
    As part of its effort to hold 25 House Republicans' feet to the fire, the DCCC released an ad showing the elderly stripping at a house party, selling lemonade and struggling to mow lawns to pay for their health care under the Ryan plan.

    Basically the left's position is to make all of us pay more for everything, (cause that's what happens when you tax businesses, YOU pay more for their goods and services) to keep unsustainable welfare programs running.


    Got it. And people actually think the liberals care about the poor?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I read this, it's not unexpected. They want everyone to think that Republicans kill puppies, old people and children.

    It's all rhetoric and it's useless. Post a fact or statistic at some point to back anything you say up?

    The's funny considering the post above you which says:

    1) Liberals use scare tactics
    2) Liberals do not care about the poor
    3) Liberals support an unsustainable system
    4) Liberals want people to pay more for everything

    Yeah, we are the ones who attack the other party by asking questions about cutting Medicare.

    WE CANNOT AFFORD MEDICARE.

    Medicare, like SS and Medicaide was previous generations allowing politicians to bribe them with our kids and grand kids money. It's time to end the BS.

    Medicare needs to have cuts. All programs do. Cuts in funds don't have to mean cuts in service. What is SHOULD mean is that departments start managing their funds better. Less redundancy, less red-tape, a more watchful eye. A harder line on fraud, even. When pennies get scarce we tend to watch them more closely. It's about darn time we started making them watch their pennies. It shouldn't have taken a 1/3rd+ increase in our total debt load and states on the verge of bankruptcy for people to start realizing that money must be managed more effectively. Nothing should be safe...that includes tax breaks, subsidies, entitlement programs, educational funding, defense...everything. And those making the budgets need to strip it down, start from scratch and make a plan based on what is available, not what we have come to demand as "necessary" (i.e. I-Pads for every student in a 10k+ school district).

    Oh guys, we cannot afford Medicare. Thanks for clearing that up MrVicchio. You know, before you typed in all caps I thought we could afford it.
