Rick Crawford has it both ways

Posted By on Mon, Oct 18, 2010 at 12:03 PM

Ernie Dumas wrote this week about Republican candidates this year having it both ways, sometimes supporting mutually exclusive positions on an issue.

Here's Rick Crawford in an interview with Time. He says he'd save Medicare money by addressing regional disparities. In other words: Medicare is paying too much to urban doctors versus what doctors in Jonesboro get. So would Crawford cut payments to some doctors? Yes. But, also, no. He's convinced, too, by the way, that voters in his district really want Nancy Pelosi gone. I wish Time had asked Crawford just what specifically the speaker has done to encourage this supposed grassroots brushfire. You don't think, maybe, this is one of those talking points manufactured — along with the signs Crawford says he's seen — in the GOP oppo research factory in Washington?
