    Mr. Berry speaks with "forked tongue." He did not express any misgivings about the "health care legislation" during the "Town Hall Meeting" in Jonesboro. Then, when push came to shove, he voted for the House bill yielding to Nancy Pelosi's demands. Mr. Berry, Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor all say one thing for publication to the voters of Arkansas but, when the chips are down they vote with the party bosses in Washington. They are all "big government socialists" interested only in "power."

    I got a letter from Marion Berry informing me he had supported the House version of the health care bill and explaining why a poor rube like me couldn't understand why it was a good thing. Mr. Berry will resign before November if he has any sense.

    Rep. Berry reads the writing on
    the wall better than President Barry.
