Minus a few technical glitches, and mysterious hints of conflict with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the first town hall of Rep. Anthony Brindisi was largely uneventful.
Not the best start in Congress, though some try to hide the on-going issues. Is it too late to stop Rep. Brindisi from becoming irrelevant?
Speaking directly with you about the Shutdown and its impact, the legislation in Congress and NYS that is hurting the economy and driving people out of the State. Plus more as the week unfolds.
Democrat Socialists can’t fathom spending $5 billion on a wall to protect American interests. Of course spending $6.5 trillion for a “green” dream is fine.
Friends to Elect Michael Vasquez – exploratory committee seeks to draw attention to the choice in the 2014 NY Congressional election.
Now is the time for full disclosure and forthright answers. Over nearly a decade I have been actively reporting issues from the local to the international level. Often, like many of us all, I have felt the frustration as political gridlock stalled efforts. The net result is a Government that is failing the populace. Congress needs to reconnect to the public it serves. Thus it is in the spirit of one of the great American Presidents, on the anniversary of his speech praising the average American, that I am launching my exploratory committee for the 2014 NY 22nd Congressional seat.
This is political grandstanding. When placed into context, either President Obama had no connection or concern with the plight of the average American from 2009 right up til April 2013 or the belief is that the American people are too stupid to notice that this is a meaningless act meant to gain political favor.
One has to wonder, did any Government official actually make a plan on what to cut if the Sequester happened? Did they even consider it as a real option, as months of debate passed without conclusion? Would you, knowing that you were about to get a pay cut 3 months in advance, ignore it until after the money was gone?
The only question to ask is if it is worth it? There are the seeds for some real progress on gun control, entangled in those seeds are proposals that limit gun owners and future potential owners. It can have some impact but it does not stop a Timothy McVeigh, Columbine, Binghamton American Civic Center, or even Taft High School shootings.
