The Democratic Agenda

During the congressional campaign, Democrats by and large were mum about their plans, hoping simply that voter dissatisfaction with Republicans would sweep them back into power. It did. Now today, as San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi is sworn in as majority leader, they are making clear their plans: a higher minimum wage (pushing up union wages while cutting jobs for the nation’s lowest-paid), pressuring the president to “bring the troops home” (as we did in Vietnam, leading to a bloodbath and the consolidation of tyranny), and increasing funding for embryonic stem-cell research (opening the door to widespread destruction of nascent human life).

For all those Christians who went for the Democrats (and who hope that somehow you will retain some influence with this party), I fear you’re about to get a dose of reality.
