Says the Syracuse “She’s 12 points down” post standard:

When asked about her renewed focus on abortion this past week, Buerkle said she is performing her duty to represent the views of the 25th Congressional District. Buerkle said she is convinced most residents of the district agree with the bills she has co-sponsored.

“I can’t give you a hard statistic,” Buerkle said. “But I heard from many people throughout the campaign who would not support me unless I was pro-life.”

The Lonely Conservative notes that the Post Standard considers it front page news that a former member of Operation Rescue is against abortion. Of course the left to whom Abortion is a sacrament, is attacking:

“Rep. Buerkle was elected to Congress because she promised to create jobs, but instead, one of her first acts is to co-sponsor and champion a bill that takes away health insurance benefits that the majority of women currently have,” DeFazio said.

Because of course repealing Obamacare and limiting what government funds are spent on has nothing to do with small government does it? Additionally having been in office for an entire 20 days, it’s undoubtedly her fault that the unemployment rate hasn’t already dropped to Bush Era levels.

NOW also attacks but that’s to be expected

Buerkle’s actions on the issue also alarm Karen DeCrow, of Jamesville, the former national president of the National Organization for Women.

“This district does not share her views on birth control, sex education, family planning and abortion,” DeCrow said of Buerkle. “She has a different view.”

Yeah the district disagrees with her so much that as the Lonely Conservative points out an attack ad used against her highlighting her opposition may have pushed her over the top:

NY25 covers all of Onondaga and Wayne Counties, and part of Cayuga and Monroe Counties. But a large portion of NY25′s voters are in Onondaga County. I did some digging and found out that there were 147,332 Catholics in Onondaga County alone in 2000 (Sorry, I searched for hours and couldn’t find any more recent data, or a breakdown of religious affiliation of registered voters.) I’m sure enough of those Catholics are registered voters who could swing the election in Buerkle’s favor. This race hasn’t been about social issues. It’s been about the economy, the direction of our country, and the failed policies of the current administration and Congress. By running this ad Dan Maffei just gave undecided pro-life voters a reason to vote for Ann Marie Buerkle.

You would think she was a Catholic or something.

The more I see of Congresswoman Buerkle the more I wish she was my congresswoman.

The Lonely Conservative reports that her property taxes are up.

It could be worse for me. The town of VanBuren’s taxes are going up a whopping 63.2% and Clay comes in second at 53.4%! But for some reason, I’m not any happier that Dewitt taxes are jumping 14.5%. We pay quite a bit as it is. How much more can they squeeze out of us?

Well I just got my property taxes for next month and they are up 10% so compared to the Lonely Conservative I guess I’m doing pretty good.

There isn’t much left to squeeze out of people here, I know that extra $50 a quarter is not very welcome to me, I can only imagine what other people with higher property valuations are doing.

Via this tweet the Lonely Conservative shows why Morning Joe didn’t have any clips of Bob Scheiffer this morning

It looks to me that this is a conversation really doesn’t help advance their template today so I guess Scheiffer is off the table, we’ll leave it to Breitbart TV.

Last week the Lonely conservative reported on the SEIU dropping dependent health care:

The fund informed its members late last month that their dependents will no longer be covered as of Jan. 1, 2011. Currently about 6,000 children are covered by the benefit fund, some until age 23.

We touched on it briefly on Saturday’s show, Michelle Malkin now reports that the SEIU is in full spin control mode today:

So if the new spin is now Gospel Truth, shouldn’t SEIU 1199 apologize to the 30,000 families that received the letter blaming Obamacare for making children’s coverage “financially impossible?”

What new spin? Apparently when dropping coverage the union said this:

“…(N)ew federal health-care reform legislation requires plans with dependent coverage to expand that coverage up to age 26,” Behroozi explained in an Oct. 22 letter to members. “Our limited resources are already stretched as far as possible, and meeting this new requirement would be financially impossible.”

Whoa Whoa Whoa we can’t be blaming Obamacare when our union worked so hard for it, so the message is changed anew to cover themselves.

To the union members who supported democrats and worked for democrats and watched your dues go to democratic coffers instead of your own pension funds I say this: You did this to yourselves!
