[1]As our state’s right-wing politicians, and the state GOP, travel around trying to scare seniors about health reform I thought it might be useful to list the members of North Carolina’s Congressional delegation who voted [2] to privatize [3] Medicare several months ago.

Howard Coble
Virginia Foxx
Walter Jones
Patrick McHenry
Sue Myrick

Come to think of it — all of the Republicans from our state voted to end the current Medicare system. Funny, Tom Fetzer has been talking [4] about Medicare so much lately I’m surprised he hasn’t mentioned his party’s plans for the program.
