Whether it's 90% or 92%, Green is W's guy

Journal Sentinel readers must have been a little perplexed by Monday's seemingly conflicting stories on just how loyal Congressman Mark Green has been to his leader, The W.

A front page story said Green supports Bush 90% of the time, and made it clear that the 10% certainly didn't qualify as any major issues. Whether it's starting a war in Iraq, limiting stem cell research, or running the country into trillion-dollar debt by giving tax cuts to the rich, Mark Green has been a reliable vote.

As a candidate for governor, he doesn't mention Bush. And he doesn't even admit that he's a Congressman, if you watch his commercials or read his campaign material. Chair of the Victory in Iraq Caucus? Who, me?

It is not worth the time to examine the difference between the 90% Bush-Green partnership and the 92% Doyle claimed in a commercial. There is not a dime's worth of difference.

But enough. Let's turn it over to Mike Plaisted for further analysis.

UPDATE: Cory Liebmann on Green's rubber stamp record.

There you go again. Green is morally against government funding research that destroys human embryos. The key word you omitted is embryonic. Why do you consistently misstate the issue?

Also, the tax cuts have resulted in record tax revenue. Those cuts were for all economic classes. Not just the rich. What percent of the taxes should the rich pay? Give me a number.

Oh yeh, I was gonna vote for Green when he was only voting for Bush policies 90 percent of the time. But 92 percent? Now that crosses the line.

What a stupid story. Must be a lot of people in that newsroom with bad hair, because how they can look in the mirror is beyond me.

One thing for Dan.

Stem cells are not embryonic. They are pre-embryonic.
They are called blastocysts, and for very good reason.
The term embryonic can only be applied to something sttached to a uterine wall. Once a fetilized egg attaches itself to that wall, it becomes an embryo.
Not before.

Stem cells are not usable after they become embryonic.

Goofticket change your name. You make sense. You aren't a goof. Why degrade yourself?

These tax cuts you speak of Dan are skewed towards the rich. According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the top 20% get 72% of the tax cut while the lower 20% get nothing. While the rich get richer the poor are getting much poorer. The middle 20%, which I am sure most of us fall, get about 8% of the tax cut or about an average of $748. After you factoring the rate of inflation, health care costs which go up at times 40% a year, cost of heating ones home which has gone up 20-30% a year, higher gas prices which also means higher prices at the grocery store to feed your family the $748 ends up being a negative tax cut. In the next 10 years millionaires will receive 68 Billion dollars in tax cuts while domestic programs are cut by 57 billion dollars under the new set of tax cuts. Mean while our national debt has increased by some 3 billion dollars under Bush. Also, to finance these tax cuts, we are borrowing from China. I hope your grand kids are rich Dan, because that’s who we are passing this run away national debt on too.
