Other facts

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.

DeLauro stands with the Occupy Wall Street crowd and yells "We are the 99 percent" while she is firmly ensconced in the 1 percent. At least $1 Million of DeLauro's personal wealth can be traced directly back to campaign contributions—some of which came from poor working people and seniors of the Third district and was funneled back into her family bank account as payment to her husband. She exemplifies a career politician, getting fat off her constituents. Cronyism makes political power more important and increases the competition for that political power via campaign contributions. The way to end cronyism is to end that political power. And the way to end that power is to replace self-serving crony politicians—like Rosa DeLauro. What is Rosa DeLauro doing about the Federal debt—now equaling over $150,000 PER TAXPAYER? Unless voters get rid of spendaholics like DeLauro, our economy will remain stalled, and the jobless rate will remain unacceptably high. The path to end this waste—and to stop the creation of yet another generation of SNAP-dependent families—is less government. Getting re-elected is DeLauro’s number one priority. Why? So she can continue to milk her office as a cash cow. During the recession, when most of us were LOSING money, her personal wealth GREW by over $2 MILLION per year. http://www.conntact.com/government/11691-rosas-not-in-the-red.html Here’s how: http://www.humanevents.com/2011/10/04/delauro-campaign-finances-raise-questions/
