The Democrats have now turned to the tactics of the 2003 Bush Administration; calling any sort of dissent “UnAmerican” A move that has many Republicans and Conservatives; and yes, even some Democrats quite upset.
The quote that has sent Conservatives into a tizzy is this:
These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American. Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades.

Another whopper in this Op-Ed piece is this here:
Reform will also mean higher-quality care by promoting preventive care so health problems can be addressed before they become crises. This, too, will save money. We’ll be a much healthier country if all patients can receive regular checkups and tests, such as mammograms and diabetes exams, without paying a dime out-of-pocket.
As The Founding Bloggers points out; this might be true, if you do not count the levy of Taxes that will be put on the backs of the American people. They may tell you, “Oh, we are not going to tax anybody!” But sooner or later, the CBO will have to deliver the news that America cannot afford to continue the program, unless the American people are taxed. Money does not grow on trees folks. You can bet your sweet behind that sooner or later, taxes will be levied on the American people. If you have a job, you will taxed, bet on it.
The real sad part here is, that the Democrats are taking a page right straight out of the Bush Administration’s playbook. By accusing those who have opposing views of being Anti-American. That will be their biggest mistake, because independent-minded people, like me, see this and think, “Wow, sounds like Bush all over again!”. Which is how this sounds. You would think that the Democrats learned that lesson during the last eight years.That you do not, not matter what happens; invoke the “Anti-American” word towards anyone that does not agree with you. It is one thing for a blogger like me to say this, about Liberals; because it is my opinion of them. But for someone of Capital Hill to say this; Whether it be Republican or Democrat, is not smart politics at all.
This is just another installment of the massive overreach by the Democrats, they will pay for this in the 2010 election cycle. Usually, a good rule of thumb is, if you are digging your own hole, stop shoveling. In this case, the Democrats rented a backhoe!
