Diane Savino in denial; Steve Cohen on the attack

Last night FOX News reported on some shocking comments made by Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) in Congress as both Republicans and Democrats battled over repealing ObamaCare.

“They say it’s a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like Goebbels,” Cohen said. “You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually, people believe it.  Like blood libel.  That’s the same kind of thing. And Congressman Cohen didn’t stop there.

“The Germans said enough about the Jews and people believed it–believed it and you have the Holocaust.  We heard on this floor, government takeover of health care.  Politifact said the biggest lie of 2010 was a government takeover of health care because there is no government takeover,” Cohen said.

I can’t imagine what kind of remarks Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) would have for business-men, Arkadiy Fridman.

Businessman Arkadiy Fridman said that the newly formed Citizens Magazine Business Club, a confederation of more than 50 Russian-owned businesses here and in Brooklyn, has aligned itself with the Molinari Republican Club (MRC) in an effort to increase the Russian community’s political and economic clout.

CLOSE TO OWN VISION

“We decided we had to support this club,” said Fridman, a former Soviet Army officer who came to the United States in 1992. “They are very close to our political and business vision.”

Fridman said that the Democrats “are going in an absolutely different direction,” focusing on “income redistribution” and rich-versus-poor “class war.”

“It’s too socialistic,” said Fridman, head of the non-profit Staten Island Community Center and president of Citizens Magazine, a public affairs publication. “It’s very painful for us to see.”

Imagine that! A former Russian Army Officer emigrates to the United States to get away from Communism. He starts his own business because he no longer has to worry about government intrusion. He came here to live in a country where he had rights and freedom. Instead he found American Communism. Fridman and his fellow businessmen believed they had left the communists way of life back home only to find themselves distressed to see the Democratic party in action.

I imagine Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN will come back with the same type response as State Sen. Diane Savino (D-North Shore/Brooklyn):

State Sen. Diane Savino (D-North Shore/Brooklyn) said she understands the Russian aversion to anything that looks like big government, but thinks the criticism of the Democratic Party is off-base.

“You can’t ignore the fact that the Russian population here came of age during the Soviet era,” said Ms. Savino, who counts many Russians among her Brooklyn constituents.

“They have different thoughts on what communism and socialism mean. They are a little more sensitive to it.

“But, that being said,” she added, “you can’t compare the policies of the Democratic Party with communism. It’s absurd.”

But, hey, we all know what is really going on don’t we?
