Specter Receives Backlash For Turning on Fiscal Responsibility

Sen. Specter Jeered For Voting For Stimulus Plan PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ―

U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter was greeted with jeers at a press conference in Cranberry Township.

Conservatives are fuming after Specter cast the deciding vote that led to the passage of President Barack Obama's stimulus plan.

Specter, 79, acknowledges his run for re-election will be tough.

He says he's not completely happy with Obama's plans but he points out that he was able to cut the price tag by over $100 billion and he says he was able to increase the amount of tax cuts.

Even so, Specter acknowledges the Republican Party's conservative wing will attempt to unseat him in next year's primary race.

Six years ago, Specter barely won the Republican primary, but he says he's not afraid to fight for the job one more time.


My Thoughts

He deserves worse. I think that the people in Pennsylvania need to send him pork rinds, protest outside his office, call and write in their displeasure with his actions. We cannot let up. If we do we'll wake up one day and be Sweden or, dare to think, California.
