"If we lose my seat they have 60 Democrats, they will pass card check, you will have the Obama tax increases, they will carry out his big spending plans. So the 41st Republican, whose name is Arlen Specter, is vital to stopping tax increases, passage of card check and the Obama big spending plans." quoting U.S. Senator Arlen Specter, formerly R-PA, now D-PA.
He often voted with the Democrats while a Republican. He will probably be a Democrat that often votes with the Republicans--especially on the issues of stopping tax increases, passage of card check, and the Obama big spending plans. It's a marriage of convenience of Arlen Specter and the Democratic Party. I hope this new moderate Democratic U.S. Senator is convenient for the Democratic Party.
