Adios Senator Specter
Good riddance to Senator Arlen Sphincter. Recently the long time Republican announced that he was switching to the Democratic party. But not without using the cancer death of conservative Republican Jack Kemp as one of the reasons he left the party.
On CBS's Face the Nation Mr. Specter continued: "If we had pursued what President Nixon declared in 1970 as the war on cancer, we would have cured many strains. I think Jack Kemp would be alive today. And that research has saved or prolonged many lives, including mine."
Fact is, according to the APHA the American Public health Association, Mr. Specter voted in the public interest only 12% of the time.
So whether Mr. Specter is willing to vote the party line despite his convictions or he simply has no convictions, he is now in the correct party.
