Breaking Campaign Promises at Record Speed - Hypocrisy of the Ruling Class

From the Gouverneur Times:

Mr. Bill Owens (now Congressman Owens)assured voters that he felt the public option had no place in the health care reform bill...indicated during his campaign that he was firmly opposed to cutting Medicare benefits, taxing health care benefits, and increased taxes on the middle class ...Mr. Owens now indicates that he intends to vote in favor of the bill even though it now contains a public option....HR 3962 contains potentially hundreds of billions of dollars in planned cuts to Medicare, yet Mr. Owens indicates that he supports this legislation and says that it does not cut Medicare benefits. Either Mr. Owens has been snowed or the public is about to be....HR 3962 also includes a range of various taxes on middle-class families as well as language to repeal tax relief already in place....HR 3962 now also contains language that allows illegal immigrants to be covered under the legislation. When The Gouverneur Times attempted to contact Mr. Owens for clarification of this language, we received no response other than the press release heretofore mentioned.
