Tiahrt TV ad attacks Moran’s stance on immigration

July 19, 2010


— Kansas Congressman Todd Tiahrt says his main rival for the U.S. Senate supported services for illegal immigrants by voting for a children's health bill last year.

Tiahrt began airing a new television ad Monday attacking fellow Republican Congressman Jerry Moran.

The ad says Moran voted to provide taxpayer-funded health care coverage for illegal immigrants. The Moran campaign contends that Tiahrt is misleading voters.

The TV spot cites a vote by Moran in January 2009 in favor of a bill reauthorizing and expanding the Children's Health Insurance Program.

GOP critics — including Tiahrt — say the bill weakened requirements that children prove they're in the country legally to get coverage.

However, state officials disagree.

I pity the poor immigrant Who wishes he would’ve stayed home Who uses all his power to do evil But in the end is always left so alone That man whom with his fingers cheats And who lies with ev’ry breath Who passionately hates his life And likewise, fears his death

Both candidates argue about who cares about immigrant children less... Jesus would be... What's the word I'm looking for?...

All the while the fact that continuing to only provide health care to illegal immigrants through hospital emergency rooms costs taxpayers much more, seems to get pushed to the side.

"Tiahrt says his main rival for the U.S. Senate supported services for illegal immigrants by voting for a children's health bill last year"

Seriously. Read that statement again. Wetback kids with H1N1 can't infect good red-blooded American kids so why worry about them?

I would not vote for either of these malcontents. Who is the Democratic candidate?

What kind of lunatic supports free health insurance for children? They should have to work for it just like everyone else.

Tihart,Moran and Brownback have done nothing except sit back and watch immigrants come across the border since Reagan/Bush launched their anti good wages and anti union campaign in 1980.

YES folks this has been going on since 1980. Now the republicans want MORE big government and want to spend YOUR big government tax dollars all the while DEMANDING MORE tax breaks for the wealthy. THESE REPUBLICANS ARE SIMPLY NUTS! Yes their plan in reality is a huge tax increase. They have no clue! They want one more chance to dupe all of us.

Tax breaks = tax increase on the middle class! The middle class pay the bills!

If they are elected NOTHING WILL CHANGE. Ever heard of campaign rhetoric yet nothing changes.

Want serious change? Bust Wal-Mart and other large corporations who hire the immigrants.

Pretty stupid angle of attack there, Tiarht. The only thing that really matters to most is the "children" portion of 'children of illegals.'

If this is a contest to see who has no heart, I think I am ready to declare a winner.

it takes a brave man to come out in favor of letting children die because of the sins of their fathers.

and by brave, I mean hateful ignorant heartless moron.

Oh that monster! Voting to provide healthcare for children who have no say over their immigration status? BURN HIM AT THE STAKE! This IS Kansas, after all. The land that science and compassion forgot..

I won't vote for someone who runs a negative campaign if I can help it.

I love the sentiment, but if you ever find someone like that these days please let me know. I'm not sure that exists anymore. You should here the sniping in Georgia and Florida right now, and that's within their own parties!!! Beyond ugly.

What happened to the GOP? Gadzooks, defending the wealthy, starving the poor and pretending to be Christians. The optics of these heartless issues have got to start horrifying even the most shameless Republican, or is the party that far gone?

The days of Bob Dole and Nancy Kassebaum are long gone, my friend. There is no longer any such thing as a moderate Republican willing to participate in bipartisanship, much less statesmanship. They no longer see their objective as running the country but ruining the country, throwing tantrums and snit fits like a two year old because they didn't win. They truly have become the party of NO, filibustering when they have to, to bring everything to a solid stop. The sad thing is that they truly don't care who it affects; the unemployed, the sick and disabled and children mean nothing to them. All the while we have the guise of "Christianity" presented to us making each politician more "sacred" than the last with Sam Brownback leading them in "prayer breakfasts". Indeed, the GOP is no longer the "GOP". It's long gone and the people of Kansas follow them like sheeple, never seeing the wolf fur under the disguise.
