Lindsey Graham Says "Change You Can Believe In" has been Replaced by "Seedy Chicago Politics" - Video 12/20/09
Here is video of Sen. Lindsey Graham on CNN yesterday saying "Change You Can Believe In" has been replaced by "Seedy Chicago Politics" by Democrats and the Obama Administration. Graham was referring to the way Democrats are conducting their push to pass a Health Care Bill in the Senate.
Graham also said Sen. Ben Nelson has lost a lot of credibility with the pro-Life community by compromising with the Obama Administration in return for his vote on the Senate Health Care Bill.
Graham said the Democrats have essentially given out "bribes" to Senators in exchange for votes, and are using "Enron" type accounting in promoting their bill.
Graham concluded by saying that Sen. Kent Conrad called the "CLASS Act (a long-term care proposal in the bill) a "ponzi scheme of the first order that Bernie Madoff would be proud of." Graham declared that any Democrat Senator who votes for this bill is a "co-conspirator" to "one of the biggest ponzi scheme in the history of Washington."
I would only disagree with Graham in that "Change you can believe in" never existed - it was only a slogan to get elected. We have had "Seedy Chicago Politics" all through the 2008 Campaign and every minute of the Obama Presidency.
