John McCain: Doc Sauerberg Might Give Senator Durbin the Night Sweats

"More than most people, a senator lives by his words ... occasionally words fail us, occasionally we will fail words."

Senator Dick Durbin (D IL U.S. Senate) 2005 on reversing himself for statements condemning U.S. Armed Forces you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime — Pol Pot or others — that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners."

Senator Durbin became a stronmg advocate of Planned Parenthood's continued genocide here in America, after years of opposing Abortion as a Congressman.

Likewise, Senator Durbin reversed himself on the issue of sugar tarrifs:
"The sugar program depended on congressmen like me from states that grew corn," Durbin said, referring to the fact that, though they were formerly a single entity, the sugar market and the corn syrup market are now largely separate.

From Wikpedia.

Now, Senator Durbin. a lawyer, is confronted with a physician as his opponent.

Dr. Steve Sauerberd, MD from Chicago's western suburbs. I like what Dr. Sauerberg has to say on Abortion - dead set against it; reforming Health Care; and most of all Education.

Dr. Sauerberg just might give Senator Dick Durbin, the Daily Kos, Moveon.Org, Huffington Post and MSNBC Senator. Dr. Sauerberg, like John McCain, reflects the attitude of most Americans.

Here is Dr. Sauerberg's polar opposition to Senator Durbin - as stark a contrast as the one drawne beteeen Obama and MCCain:

Dick Durbin’s record on fighting for taxpayers is pathetic,” continued Sauerberg. “He consistently votes to raise taxes on the hard-working men and women of Illinois. Adding insult to injury, Senator Durbin then turns around and supports spending those tax dollars on special interest pork barrel projects all across the country.”

“Dick Durbin has turned Illinois into America’s ATM, as taxpayers here are forced to foot the bill for wasteful projects in other states. It’s shameful that Durbin has allowed our state to rank 5th worst on the return of federal dollars that we send to Washington,” said Sauerberg.

"As a graduate of the Illinois public school system and the father of two children who also went through the Illinois public school system, I understand how important it is that all our children receive a top-notch education. As your next Senator, I will work hard to strengthen our school system by taking more money out of the education bureaucracy and putting it directly into our children’s classrooms."
No unfunded mandates for our public school system. With lagging test scores in the public education system, drastic changes need to be made and evaluated in an open manner.

Increase the amount of education funding veterans receive when they return home.
Despite calls for action, I do not believe we should simply throw money at the problem. We need to evaluate from the top down to make sure education is being funded the best way possible."

I especially like Dr. Sauerberg's postion on Education. Click my post title for more on Dr. Steve Sauerberg.
