Where's the CHANGE?
I'd wager that even Obama fans and apologists must admit that the last 2 years have been just more of the same... This might be the ultimate in hypocrisy (though letting unions be the only ones to keep their "Cadillac" health plans runs a close second):
"If at first you don't succeed, get some friends in high places to shut your opponents up. That's the latest Washington power play, as Democrats and liberals attack the Chamber of Commerce and independent spending groups in an attempt to stop businesses from participating in politics.
