IL-10th. Dold-Seals Endorsement Interview (Seals for Taxes)

Chicago Tribune video:

Seals keeps flipping on taxes. You know if he gets in he'll vote with the Dems. ObamaCare is one big tax. It's clear he's a big government guy. Individual choice and the private sector--that pays for everything after all [update: good Tribune editorial]--are an afterthought. Latest in the race, from Dold for Congress:

Seals Supports Stripping $560 Billion of Medicare

Winnetka, IL- At today’s candidate debate for the 10th Congressional District sponsored by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), Democratic candidate Dan Seals couldn’t explain to seniors why he supported the health care reform legislation which will cost $1 trillion over 10 years and gutted Medicare by $560 billion to pay for it.

“Seals not only supported the health care law but thinks it didn’t go far enough and has publicly supported a further expansion of government into health care,” said Dold campaign spokesperson Kelly Klopp. “Seals was silent today when asked how he supported a bill that was paid for on the backs of seniors who can least afford it.”

Seals claims to be a fiscal conservative, and yet supports the traditional tax-and-spend policies of the current Congress. He supported the $862 billion Federal Stimulus bill and the health care legislation that will cost $1 trillion.

“Seals claims support for a pay-as-you-go system, and yet hasn’t explained how he would pay for his laundry list of spending, including the $862 billion Federal Stimulus and the $1 trillion health care legislation,” said Klopp. “His “fiscal conservative” language doesn’t hold up to scrutiny since he has supported a litany of spending projects and tax hikes to pay for it.”

“Dan Seals's only solution to every issue is to raise taxes,” said Klopp.

Latest bizarre Seals attack: Democrat slams rival (a Christian) for attending event on Yom Kippur:
Nothing in Jewish law or practice prohibits non-Jews from doing anything they would usually do on Yom Kippur or any other Jewish holiday, said Rabbi Michael Balinsky, executive vice president of the Chicago Board of Rabbis, a group representing more than 200 rabbis of all denominations.
