The New York Times reports today that Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) has gone on record to say that there is no reason for opponents of reform to spread lies in an effort to “gin up fear.” I obviously disagree with Sen. Murkowski’s view that the bills under consideration ”are bad enough” on their own, but I am so thankful for the second part of her sentence wherein she makes it clear that Republicans “don’t need to be making things up.”
This has been, and will continue to be, my position on the issue. Let the facts speak for themselves and let people decide what they support based on those facts. How refreshing to have someone from the right calling for a stop to the nonsense. That she’s from the same state as the notorious Sarah Palin? Even better.
