In the candidate's own words:

For Rosa, her work has been and will always be about helping people. Since coming to Congress, she has built a reputation as a hard-working, passionate, and forthright advocate for her constituents, an honest broker who works with members of all parties, and a leader on matters of domestic and social policy. She has helped improve schools, bring tax relief to middle-class families, protect employee pensions, and encourage job creation in Connecticut.

Rosa DeLauro: Disaster strikes. DeLauro suddenly appears, getting free photo ops, to tell residents “Submit insurance claims to get reimbursed”. And for this? YOU pay her an annual salary of $174,000. http://RosaDeLauroExposed.wordpress.com/

Christopher you are right, Rosa shows up after every disaster takes photos and then diappears faster than Hurricane Sandy. The only difference is we can see what Sandy did. Rosa is on committees that benifit her husbands business and his clients. It's time to vote out the old and bring in the new. Being a politician should NOT be a full time job. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BRIBE AND A CAMPAIN DONATION IS ONE GETS YOU SENT TO THE BIG HOUSE, THE OTHER GETS YOU AN INVITATION TO THE WHITE HOUSE. BOTH ARE GIVING A PUBLIC OFFICIAL MONEY TO DO YOU A FAVOR... GO FIQURE...

Rosa collected well over a million dollars this election, the MOST EVER. This is likely her last hurrah, the last time she can rob her supports to enrich herself. Most of this money will be paid to her husband, which in any household means Rosa is paying herself. She is slipping, having to use a binder of notes to give answers to ordinary questions. She is getting tired of being the DNC attack dog, accomplishing nothing legislatively. She will want to retire to her sumptuous villa on the Amalfi Coast. So, this final haul of fat cash will pad her fantastic lifestyle going into retirement. Congratulations to the suckers who contributed: you proved your absolute loyalty to the party machine. But Rosa's cashing out and running with your money to southern Italy. But not before launching a couple of salvoes against her hated enemies... just for old times' sake.
