Illinois Review: Bean, Foster and Halvorson can kiss re-election hopes goodbye

Clipped in full from Illinois Review. I'm sure Fran won't mind.
“If there’s anything that Tuesday’s elections in New Jersey and Virginia showed us, it’s that the public is sick and tired of the Democrats’ reckless policies, like the government-run option, that create more government and not more jobs. By being the key votes for delivering government-run option to Nancy Pelosi, Melissa Bean, Bill Foster and Debbie Halvorson can kiss their hopes of re-election good-bye.” – Tom Erickson, NRCC spokesman, said in a statement late last night.

The House just passed their $1.2 trillion government takeover of healthcare by a slim margin of 220-215. Delivering the key votes for Nancy Pelosi’s government-run takeover of healthcare were Illinois’ Melissa Bean, Bill Foster and Debbie Halvorson. These Illini delivered the 218th, 219th and 220th votes to Nancy Pelosi; carrying the bill over the finish line just in the nick of time.

Today is the first day of the end of their terms in Congress.
