Joe Sestak has an op-ed in the Post-Gazette today that looks past health reform to the bigger issue in this year's midterms -- the economy -- and takes a swipe at former Republican Arlen Specter:
In December, the House passed a jobs bill to compensate for the $100 billion stripped from the stimulus by a small group of senators, led by Sen. Arlen Specter, D-Pa. Most economists agree that was a mistake that lengthened the recession and cost hundreds of thousands of American jobs. The Senate followed last week -- three months later -- by sending us back a severely weakened version that is about a tenth of the size and not nearly adequate.
