Republicans rip Mike Ross

Posted By on Tue, Apr 26, 2011 at 7:35 AM

The National Republican Campaign Committee has cut a radio ad — extent of use unknown — to rip U.S. Rep. Mike Ross for voting against the Republican budget to destroy Medicare and Medicaid while slashing taxes for millionaires. (Though they don't use quite that terminology, naturally.) Ross couldn't get behind any budget plan, Republican or Democrat, which left him open to the rap. Funny. The ad warns that some people not previously represented by Ross might now have him as their congressman. As if the soak-the-poor crowd of Tim Griffin, Rick Crawford and Steve Womack would be any better.

Talking Points Memo notes how the Blue Dogs created this problem for themselves.

GREAT MINDS DEPARTMENT: I've been writing about the lack of outrage at the Republican plan to gut Medicare. Jon Stewart developed that theme last night. Where are the town hall meetings and the people whose country has been stolen?
