Have they no shame?

Reps. Benishek and Camp have been running misleading ads claiming they're trying to save Medicare and Social Security. Nothing could be further from the truth for, in reality, they are in lock step with billionaires who would love to turn both programs over to Wall Street interests. Instead of fighting for preventive care, women's health and affordable insurance, they enjoy taxpayer-funded junkets overseas and blindly vote down any bill designed to help the middle class.

Have they no shame? Apparently not, where money is concerned, for both are funded by the Koch brothers.

Throw the bums out.
