In a not-so-shocking development, Democrat elected to Congress turns out to have lied during campaign

Democrat Bill Owens was elected to the U.S. Congress on Tuesday.  During his campaign, Owens opposed a public option in Obamacare, Medicare cuts, taxes on healthcare benefits, and increasing taxes on the middle class "in any way."  But Owens has already changed his mind on all of those things and announced his support for Nancy Pelosi's healthcare bill.  As a local newspaper from Owens' district headlined . . . "Owens Breaks 4 Campaign Promises in first hour in Congress."

Keep that in mind the next time that you hear a Democrat make a campaign promise.
