I’m beginning to wonder when the Montana Republican Party is going to come out against Social Security and Medicare. After all, they certainly seem supportive of the idea that the federal government has no role in health care.
At the latest hyperbolically named “rally” of the curiously lightly employed Montana Tea Party, Montana Republicans were central figures. According to the Independent Record, the Montana Republican Party’s Executive Director Bowen Greenwood issued a media advisory promoting the event and Republican legislative candidates were in attendance.
Can one assume that these candidates agree that Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, not to mention dozens of smaller programs, should all be abolished as unconstitutional, socialistic schemes?
I’d certainly hate to consider the alternative: that Republicans are playing a cynical con game on Montana voters. Did Dennis Rehberg lose his playbook somewhere?
