Liberal Honesty

J.C. Arenas
Liberals have consistently used deception in their attempt to steer this nation to the far left, but as the old proverb states, sooner or later the truth comes to the light. But who would have thought it would have come from their own mouths?

Congressman John Dingell (D-MI) on Cap-and-Trade:
"Nobody in this country realizes that cap and trade is a tax, and it's a great big one."

Howard Dean on why there's no tort reform in health-care reform proposals:

"Here is why tort reform is not in the bill. When you go to pass a really enormous bill like that the more stuff you put in, the more enemies you make, right? And the reason why tort reform is not in the bill is because the people who wrote it did not want to take on the trial lawyers in addition to everybody else they were taking on, and that is the plain and simple truth. Now, that's the truth." (emphasis added)

Harry Reid (D-NV) on the real cost of Max Baucus's (D-MT) concept of a health-care reform bill:

"He talked about CBO saying that there would be $54 billion saved each year if we put caps on medical malpractice and put some restrictions - tort reform - $54 billion. Sounds like a lot of money, doesn't it, Mr. President? The answer is yes. But remember, we're talking about $2 trillion, $54 billion compared to $2 trillion. You can do the math. We can all do the math. It's a very small percent." (emphasis added)

Vice President Joe Biden on the real state of the U.S. economy:

"My grandpop used to say -- there was a suburb of Scranton called Minooka.  He said, ‘When the guy in Minooka's out of work, it's an economic slowdown.  When your brother- in-law's out of work, it's a recession.  When you're out of work, it's a depression. Well, it's a depression -- it's a depression for millions of Americans, through no fault of their own." (emphasis added)

Perhaps liberals really believe that we're so feeble-minded we can't handle the truth and thus want to be lied to. Perhaps its realism, they know their policies are inherently flawed--history tell us this is so-- and will never work regardless of who is implementing them. But the goal here is the destruction of a nation that they see as being inherently flawed. The only feasible solution is to dress up their aim as transformation for the purpose of improvement in order to conceal its reality from a society that wouldn't co-sign if they also knew the truth.

As the non-debate continues and massive pieces of radical legislation are constructed in back rooms on Capitol Hill keep in mind there is what the liberals are willing to tell us and the truth. If we're lucky, they just might inadvertently clue us in.
