The Democrats up for reelection came in on the Obama wave of 2008. The GOP needs to swing just six seats to take control of the US Senate but there is a very real possibility they can take more.
The Top Twelve races to watch?
- Mark Begich (D-Alaska)
Big Obamacare fan. Sits on the Veterans Affairs Committee and must take some responsibility for failing to act when he heard of veterans dying as they waited for VA care. Supports full funding for the anti-American United Nations. Supports the DREAM ACT and birthright citizenship for illegal immigrants. Votes with Harry Reid 85% of the time.
- Mark Pryor (D-Arkansas)
Another Dem Dynasty candidate who despises the “little people”. Voted for T.A.R.P., the ‘stimulus” bailout, Obamacare, pro-union Paycheck Protection. He’s a Big Government liberal in locked step with the Democrat machine and Barack Obama. Votes 80% of the time with Harry Reid.
- Mark Udall (D-Colorado)
Another dynasty politician from the Democrats. Udall is an extreme environmentalist who opposed the job-creating Keystone pipeline. He’s also against oil wells and the jobs they bring to his home state. He voted to cooperate with the United Nations’ anti-American International Criminal Court, which seeks to prosecute US soldiers outside of America AND he voted against cleaning up the United Nations. Udall votes with Reid 87% of the time.
- Bruce Braley (D-Iowa)
In the House, Braley voted 98% of the time with Nancy Pelosi’s far-left agenda. He supported the wasteful ‘stimulus,’ and was a champion of Obamacare — until he found out what was in it. He also voted to cut $500 billion in Medicare. He should never have gotten in the House let alone the Senate.
- Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana)
Another political Dem Dynasty incumbent Landrieu backed Obamacare in Louisiana where it’s unpopular because of its terrible impact on small businesses. She accepted $300 million of crony money for her vote and then bragged about it. Votes with Harry 83% of the time.
- Gary Peters (D-Michigan)
Peters is currently a one-term House member who got his seat through political shenanigans. Based on his cozy relationship with Wall Street, Detroit insiders and labor unions he shouldn’t get a promotion from the House to the Senate. As a Big Government sheep he supported TARP, Obamacare, the DREAM bill, the pro-union Paycheck Act — and he even bailed out Chrysler in order to hand it over to Italians.
- Al Franken (D-Minnesota)
He thinks he’s funny. We don’t. He’s the most liberal Progressive in Washington. He’s almost alone in supporting the government’s NSA spy program, he’s pro-abortion, pro-amnesty and let’s not forget the likely voter fraud that got him elected last time. Votes with Reid 91% of the time.
- Tom Udall (D-New Mexico)
Yes, that’s another limousine Dem Dynasty member. He’s pro-illegal immigrant, has a 100% pro-abortion voting record, has beefed up the intrusive EPA and takes money from the Sierra Club and Big Labor. He voted YES to a National Energy Tax that would devastate the middle class and is anti-gun.
- Jeanne Shaheen (D-New Hampshire)
Big Obamacare supporter. Shaheen hates the job-creating Keystone pipeline but loves the campaign funds from environmental groups. She pressured the IRS to investigate political non-profits — which actually meant conservative political groups. She thinks Boko Haram, the Nigerian terrorist group, isn’t Islamic. Votes with Reid 89% of the time.
10. Kay Hagan (D-North Carolina)
She bleats she will balance the Budget but voted for the $192 billion stimulus loan. Fanatical supporter of Obamacare. Her dramatic loss of support in the Tar Heel state has led Harry Reid to send funds from his PAC to prop her up. She votes with him 87% of the time.
11. Jeff Merkley (D-Oregon)
Nanny statist Merkely believes in Obamacare, lowering the Medicare age, getting the government involved in childrearing and electric cars. He’s the ultimate limousine liberal and the 27th richest Senator. Votes with Harry 89% of the time.
12. Mark Warner (D-Virginia)
Terrible Governor, he ran Virginia into deficit, which is illegal in the state and only turned it around by raising taxes. Calls himself bipartisan but is an archetypal inside-the-Beltway Washington liberal. Made $100 million using what would now be illegal inside knowledge to get pals to apply for government radio licenses, and took a slice of the profits selling them to cellphone companies. Votes with Reid 87% of the time.
It’s all so winnable! Get out your vote and let’s neuter Obama in his last two years!
