So Matt Cartwright, a real progressive, is running against fracking backer Rep. Tim Holden, and the Blue Dogs and their lobbyist friends are pouring cash into the race (backing the fracker, of course). The ads attack Cartwright for supporting a public option:
The spot also portrays Cartwright as an opponent of President Barack Obama, saying that he “even put down President Obama on health care reform. More yelling. Less cooperation. Blaming President Obama. That’s the worst of Washington. That’s Matt Cartwright.”
Would it surprise you to learn that one of the lobbyists represents the health insurance lobby? Of course not.
