I received a mailer from Congressman Jeff Denham saying how he wanted to save Medicare. He also said that he was a friend of seniors and veterans.

How can a darling of the tea party make such claims? That silly group wants to cut veterans benefits and put Medicare on a voucher system.

Denham claims to be a farmer. He only has 20 acres. Where I come from, that is just a big back yard.
