3. On the last screen you must give you zip code, and it must be
in his district.

9. Took it.
But, the questions are written in such a way as to be interpreted pro or con Universal coverage.Seemed like there were some "loaded" questions. The results could be used for or against a public plan.

11. Change the language; change the frame of reference...
There's no way in hell this pile of reactionary shit deserves to self-identify as a democrat.

He's just another of those useless republicans who hide behind that little "d" after their names in hopes people won't notice how hideously anti-american their voting records are.

However, they all leave their own individual slime trails behind them, most of which you can see rah-cheer.


And the phrase "blue dog" is another modifier that designed to signify to business that he's a "safe" little "d" democrat, while "softening" his record of supporting pro-biz, anti-human, pro-"right to life," anti-choice legislation to appeal to voters who are stuck, as usual, with yet another choice between the lesser of two weevils.

19. Yeah, and the sick thing is this prick is getting money from groups you'd...
...consider "liberal" by definition. For example, labor-related bribes out-number bribes from the insurance/financial/real estate sector nearly two to one. I figure it's preemptive bribery as a self-defense mechanism. I don't know how else you'd explain it. Clearly, a con is labor's natural enemy just as surely as an AOG killer is mine.

Speaking of which, you dig a little deeper and find that he has a 0 rating from both Planned Parenthood and NARAL, while he gets an 85 from the so-called "national right to life committee."

That would be one of the front organizations who so proudly (though covertly) support pro-life murderers like certifiable whack jobs Scott Roeder and the grand dragon of ob-gyn killers, Paul Hill.

So you can eventually get to the heart of the matter by following enough bread crumbs.

15. Did it....
Sure hope the last zip code you gave corresponds with Warrick county, because that's the county I chose. I'm from California. I don't know anything about counties in Indiana.

Oh well. I live to serve. ;) I loved the way he kept inserting the three questions about whether or not we would pay higher taxes for a health care plan. Did he think we suffer from fear of taxation, or that we wouldn't notice and would trip ourselves up? Sly devil.

16. Fucking push-poll.
If you take the time to complete the survey, please use the comments section to call Ellsworth on the repeated false suggestions that government-administered coverage must be more expensive, and would result in higher taxes. It's bullshit, and Ellworth is hiding behind it.
