Dave Westlake just issued a press release with the title “Feingold says bill doesn’t spend enough” referring to the health care/insurance reform bills in Congress. Westlake was referring to Feingold’s support of a public option in a health care reform bill. One thing about Westlake is certain: he doesn’t let honesty or facts get in the way of anything that will get him attention.
In the press release Westlake cites several polls thats show Americans oppose several health care options that are not and have never been in any of the bills currently in Congress. Then he attempts to tie our fine Senator to these options. Shameless.
Westlake then manages to insult Feingold’s Control Spending Now act, which would reduce the budget deficit by $500 billion over 10 years, by implying that figure is insignificant when compared with a health care reform bill. Shameless.
Why does Westlake word his press releases to make it appear Feingold said something he didn’t? The voters he is going for with these cheap shots don’t read press releases. They vote for people because they wear blaze orange at campaign events. Don’t lie to us Dave, we’re smarter than that.
Westlake puts tired GOP “big bad government” rhetoric over the health of American citizens. Senator Feingold looks to cut government waste and keep citizens healthy. Easy choice.
