Independent Pryce
In a recent television ad, Deborah Pryce claims she "stood up to her own party" when she voted for embryonic stem cell research.

That's one way of looking at it, I suppose. The ad, however, seems to be missing a lot of important information…

For example, she never says which "party" she belongs to. I wonder, is "Republican" the new "Liberal" in Ohio politics?

Also, she doesn't mention that 51 other Republicans also voted FOR the bill because everyone knew the president planned to veto the bill (which he did) and they couldn't override the veto (which they couldn't).

More importantly, the ad fails to mention all of the times that she DID toe the party line. I will go out on a limb here and guess that NONE of her ads will ever reveal that Rep. Pryce voted to:

  • Reject a timetable for the withdrawal of U.S. troops
  • Extend the Bush tax cuts
  • Cut nearly $40 billion in welfare, child support and student lending programs.
  • Give political appointees more power to make decisions about endangered species
  • Offer tax breaks and incentives to energy companies
  • Establish a free trade zone between the United States, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Gautemala,
  • Honduras and Nicaragua
  • Give federal courts jurisdiction in the Terri Schiavo dispute.

We also probably won't hear that, out of the 32 house members with the astrological sign Leo (Deb was born July 29th), she was one of 19 that voted for the stem cell bill- along with Ted Strickland (also a Leo). And that Marilyn Quayle, Peter Jennings and Benito Mussolini were also born on July 29th.
