Armstrong: Markey deserves to lose election over vote

The flip-flop by U.S. Rep. Betsy Markey, D-Colo., on health-care reform (voting no in November but now planning to vote yes) earned this analysis Friday from former U.S. Sen. Bill Armstrong...

"I always thought that if they absolutely had to have her vote, that she'd do it," said Armstrong, a Republican who represented Colorado in Congress from 1973 to 1991. "And if they didn't need it, if they had votes to spare, that they'd let her off. Because it's going to be tremendously unpopular in the Fourth Congressional District. She may very well lose the election over this vote. Personally, she deserves to."
