Switch and Bait

A physician I know received a call from Tom Delay’s fundraisers, asking if she wants to be “an advisor.” This is a well-known scam (and here) — what they’re really doing is tricking people into giving campaign contributions.

I’m writing because one of the things they mentioned is that the Republicans want to increase Medicare reimbursement to physicians! But in fact, the Republicans have been CUTTING (more here) Medicare reimbursements!

ANYway, what got me thinking about this is I just read this at RuminateThis:

BUSH CLAIM: “We’ll have time to look at it and determine whether or not our grid needs to be modernized. I happen to think it does, and have said so all along.”

BUSH FACT: In June of 2001, Bush opposed and the congressional GOP voted down legislation to provide $350 million worth of loans to modernize the nation’s power grid because of known weaknesses in reliability and capacity.

They just lie. Get used to it. Go read the rest, and then the BuzzFlash analysis.
