Because quite a number of them really are card carrying Dem Socialists.
Gateway Pundit reports:
The Socialist Party of America announced in their October 2009 newsletter that 70 Congressional democrats currently belong to their caucus.
This admission was recently posted on Scribd.com:
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.
The Hill: ‘Professional left’ not ready to back an Obama challenger
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.

Let’s not forget that “Progressive” is the current code-word for “Socialist” – since the term “Socialist” doesn’t play all that well in most of the country.
The House Democratic Progressive Caucus website isn’t easy to find. Here it is:
“# Raúl Grijalva (AZ-7, Tucson) – Co-Chair”
# Lynn Woolsey (CA-6, Santa Rosa) – Co-Chair
Here are a few more resources:
“What Is PDA?
Progressive Democrats of America was founded in 2004 to transform the Democratic Party and our country.”
“c/o Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Co-chairman
1730 Longworth House Office Building”
” * Radical caucus of nearly six-dozen members of the House of Representatives
* Until 1999, worked in open partnership with Democratic Socialists of America”
“Arizona Democratic Progressive Caucus”
“The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) is the largest caucus within the Democratic caucus in the United States Congress with 83 declared members, and works to advance progressive issues and positions”
(See who from your state is in that caucus.)
Obama has a key, history making speech already in the can. Just waiting for the right victory. “After this, I have no more territorial ambitions.”

Comrade Obama (PBUH) is not a socialist. He is our first Marxist / Communist President. Name this child!
You don’t have to search for cached web images to find the list or rely on old information.
You can find an updated list with 82 names openly published on an official House of Representatives web site. These members of Congress are part of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.
The Congressional Progressive Caucus worked openly with the Democratic Socialists of America until 1999.
My Congressman, Sam Farr, is a member. You might also find it interesting that his campaigns are financed almost exclusively by out-of-state public-employee unions and labor unions. I haven’t yet looks, but I expect that the other members of the Progressive Caucus have similar ties.
Look at the list of the top political donors.
Nearly all the organizations associated with public-employee or labor unions give almost exclusively to Democrats (95%+).
