Republicans' Amazing Power of Prognostication!

Sound familiar? Via Congress Matters:
On the 1993 deficit reduction package:
Rep. Robert Michel (R-IL), Los Angeles Times, 5/28/93:
They will remember who let loose this deadly virus into our economic bloodstream.
On jobs:
Rep. John Kasich (R-OH), 5/27/93:
...your economic program is a job killer
On Medicare:
Rep. Durward Hall (R-MO), 4/8/65:
...we cannot stand idly by now, as the Nation is urged to embark on an ill-conceived adventure in government medicine, the end of which no one can see, and from which the patient is certain to be the ultimate sufferer.em>
On Social Security:
Rep. John Taber (R-NY), 4/19/35:
Never in the history of the world has any measure been brought here so insidiously designed as to prevent business recovery, to enslave workers and to prevent any possibility of the employers providing work for the people.
Many, many more quotes here
