Shock!! Every Dem On Deficit Reduction Panel Score 'F' From Taxpayer's Union

Posted by Brian
As if to poke a stick in the eye of the American taxpayer, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid named arguably the biggest tax and spend liberals in Congress to the new Deficit Reduction Panel, including John "I served in Vietnam" Kerry.  The Boehner and McConnell appointees don't realyy thrill me.  Kyl has been wishy-washy of late, and Toomey doesn't give me a warm fuzzy either.  Jim Demint and Allen West, and a few of the 24 who held their ground, under incredible pressure from the leadership, would have made me much more confident in the outcome.
