    No matter that the #1 constituent issue in some districts is keeping Medicare advantage plans available… The House Majority tied cuts in the Republican medicare reform baby to the “Doc Fix” bill that postpones cuts in medicare payments to doctors.

    We started with your savings, now we’ll take over oil. Thank you.

    This past week many House Democrats have called to nationalize American energy production. If Congress thinks it is a wise move to socialize our energy supply, look no further than Hugo Chavez. This proposal is clearly wrong and goes against every principle of freedom and democracy that has defined our nation. “Greenies” want us...

    Or something like that. The standard bearer of the mainstream media, the Associated Press, published an article today detailing the deterioration of the world as we know it into a mish mash ball of goo. “Midwestern levees are bursting.

    McCain has already taken the offensive on the energy debate, showing an interest in ‘Deep Sea Energy Exploration’ (nice one, Frank Luntz disciples) and increased nuclear energy.
