They should be...but won't.
I would really like to put one up that linked "All You Want To Know About KERRY." to the Communist Party Site.
Of course not!
It's not in the Democrat list of talking points.
The media is lazy and biased.
Everyone knows that now.
The media takes its marching orders from the Democrat Party.
If a conservative had introduced fake documents to back up an anti Kerry story on national TV,do you think that it would be shunned like the MSM has shelved it so far?

Yes, John, you were involved in it. You were against it. You were also involved in 'fixing' the welfare system. President Clinton vetoed that bill twice before he claimed it as his own idea, and I'm sure you voted against that each time, as well.
To John F'n Kerry: If medicare was "fixed" in 1997, then what's all the hubbub, bub?
We have to parse this stuff. Being "involved in it" simply means that he was there. It doesn't say whether he voted for or against it....
However, a Bush increase seemed so inconceivable that someone did some homework on the issue. As it turns out, the 17% increase was not imposed by President Bush but was mandated by the "balanced budget agreement signed by President Clinton, voted into law by Senator John Kerry, and was scheduled to come into effect during the Bush administration. President Bush had no authority to reverse what had been voted into law by Senator Kerry during the Clinton administration.
Once again Kerry is counting on the IGNORANCE of the American people.
They fixed Medicare? That will come as a huge surprise to all the doctors who are getting ten cents on the dollar for the care they provide Medicare patients, to the hospitals that are going under because they can't get enough back from Medicare to cover their own costs to care for elderly patients, and to the patients who are having trouble getting physicians who accept Medicare alone.
I don't see any two years where the debt was "paid down."
