Because quite a number of them really are card carrying Dem Socialists.
Gateway Pundit reports:
See Gateway Pundit for the 70 Dems on the list.
I’ve been saying for a year and a half now that it’s time to rebrand the whole party. Even though most Dems are not on the record, they’ve greenlighted Obama’s Socialist agenda every step of the way.
And make no mistake. Obama is a Democratic Socialist, himself.
Last November Trevor Loudon reported:
The push to socialize US Heathcare came, not from from the “people”, but from small clique of Marxists, led by a man with close persional ties to president Barack Obama.
This group’s goal is fully socialized, government run “single payer” healthcare-as long promoted through Congressman John Conyers’ National Health Insurance Act, or HR 676.
The leader of this Marxist clique is Quentin Young-a retired Chicago physician, a life long Marxist activist and long time friend and political ally of Barack Obama.
Physicians for a National Health Program National Coordinator Dr. Quentin Young with Sen. Barack Obama at Dr. Young’s 80th birthday celebration in 2003.
Young has known and worked with Obama for years, in Chicago and has reportedly directly influenced Obama’s views on socialized medicine.
According to radical journalist John Nichols writing in The Progressive;
Obama…learned about single-payer health care from his old friend and neighbor Dr. Quentin Young, the longtime coordinator of Physicians for a National Health Program.
Quentin Young told Amy Goodman of Democracy Now!, that while an Illinois State senator, Obama was a strong supporter of “single payer”
Barack Obama, in those early days—influenced, I hope, by me and others—categorically said single payer was the best way, and he would inaugurate it if he could get the support, meaning majorities in both houses, which he’s got, and the presidency, which he’s got. And he said that on more than one occasion…. ”
Of course, Obama has subsequently stated that he was for single payer…..“only if we were starting from scratch”, because we’re all stupid enough to buy that line of b.s.
Of course they’re not – what a load of crap. The ‘professional left’ has never had it this good, and most likely , never will again.
