Bayh’s Good-Bye: Here’s the Real Reason

by Larry Elder at

Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., “shocked” President Barack Obama and his party by announcing his plan to retire from the Senate. Appearing on CBS’ “The Early Show,” Bayh explained: Washington suffers from acute partisanship. Washington doesn’t work. It is broken.

How noble — a principled position against “divisiveness.” Let us honor a good man standing tall against the lack of “bipartisanship.” Pass the barf bag.

When has Washington, D.C., not been “divisive” under a president pushing unpopular ideas — whether the war in Iraq, the Senate “amnesty” bill, partial privatization of Social Security or Bill Clinton’s attempt to allow gays to serve openly in the military?

Could it be that the “fed-up” senator feared losing re-election? Don’t ask. CBS didn’t. The possibility that Bayh faced a tough re-election wasn’t even hinted at. But imagine Bayh, who explored a 2008 presidential bid, running for re-election while justifying to skeptical Hoosiers his votes for “stimulus,” TARP, the auto bailouts and ObamaCare.

Here’s the big underreported story.

11 Senators Who Must Vote NO on Health Care – Call them today!

Do you live in one of these states?

Alaska – Arkansas – ColoradoConnecticut – Indiana – Louisiana – Montana – Nebraska – Virginia

Then you need to call your Senator today… here’s why:
When the full Senate takes up health care in the next few weeks, the Democrats need 60 votes to pass the bill. As it stands now, they have those 60 votes!

The following 11 Senators are either up for re-election in 2010 or have voiced opposition to something in the current bill (ie, public option, big health care bills, etc.). It’s time to ratchet up the pressure on them to vote against any version of government health care!

Call, fax, email, tweet, blog, post… share this information with others in your state and call these Senators today!

TELL THEM — NO public option. NO individual mandate. NO Massachusetts Model. NO Single Payer. NO Co-Ops.  NO Socialized Healthcare for the USA!
