Max,
Our (mis)representative, Jerry McNerney has been "hard at work" destroying the private sector and jobs in America, voting for TARP, reducing our military power, reducing our energy independence, dramatically GROWING the size of federal government, FOR Congress receiving a dramatically better quality of healthcare for themselves than for the pions like you and me and the rest of Americans, for Cap & Trade, for more and more taxes, for limitless government spending, for blocking FREEDOM of SPEECH (i.e. for maintaning the (un)Fairness Doctrine.

AND for CREATING DEATH PANELS!!!

Doubt me?

Have a listen to Peter Orszag as he explains how the RATIONING of medical services will be dramatic. THIS will become essentially a DEATH PANEL. >>> Web Link

Hey Seniors, how about demanding that McNerney explain Orszag's rationing explanation??? !!!

Pete,

So Jerry McNerney created death panels?

All you can do is regurgitate every right-wing talking point without the slightest interest in the truth. You statements are a pretty good example a person who lives a in a right-wing fantasy world and believes every baseless conspiracy theory present by your white nationalist leaders like Glenn Beck and Palin.

Max is spouting the tea bagger, beck, limbag lies and B/S while our Jerry Mcnerney is working hard for us in District 11 to improve Health Care and improve benefits and understanding of benefits by seniors. Thank you again Jerry McNerney for your hard work and understanding of the issues important to us in Dublin. It is fantastic that we have a Rep working for us that actually lives in the neighborhood.

I see that our (mis)representative, Nancy McNerney, just voted "yes" to persuade Puerto Rico to hold a referendum on becoming a US State.

So, Nancy McNerney, you want Puerto Rico to become the 51st state. Makes sense that you want this since this will further BANKRUPT America as we dole out more and more WELFARE!

Why Mr. McNerney are you so determined to DESTROY America???

Btw: To the seniors who will have the stomach to listen to our traitor-representative, ask him "Where in the US Constitution does it give you the authority to mandate that we purchase health insurance???

McNerney is a despicable person.
