“Rosa DeLauro… railed against a Congress that she said was the least productive in history.” These are words spoken by one of the most radically partisan members of Congress. DeLauro is utterly incapable of compromise—and therefore is a PRIMARY contributor to congressional gridlock.
“she is grateful for the honor, ‘not as a reward for past service’”—because if you check her record of “past service”, you’ll see that not a SINGLE bill she has introduced in the past 23 years has passed—regardless of whether Democrats or Republicans held the House majority: https://www.govtrack.us/congress/members/rosa_delauro/400103/report-card/2013#bills-reportedDeLauro also scores ZERO on govt. transparency. No doubt that’s because she has used her political office to funnel campaign donations to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee—which then hires her husband with those very same funds to be a “consultant”. Thus, she essentially enriches herself with campaign donations: http://www.humanevents.com/2011/10/04/delauro-campaign-finances-raise-questions/ Open a free account here and you’ll see that this scheme has allowed DeLauro to accumulate an obscene personal wealth of $26 MILLION: http://www.legistorm.com/
“DeLauro said her charge is to make the system work”. But, of course, it can’t possibly work as long as entrenched politicians like DeLauro remain in office. Solution? Term limits! And if Congress won’t enact term limits—you, the voter must impose them on Election Day.
“She promised to make sure the Veterans Administration properly serves veterans and to make guarantee that UnitedHealth and other insurers can’t drop physicians from Medicare Advantage networks after clients have signed up.” But if DeLauro actually had been doing her job—instead of hosting Georgetown cocktail parties for the Washington elites—she should not have allowed these messes to develop in the first place! http://www.publicintegrity.org/2010/10/05/2460/political-inaction-committees-how-political-action-committees-are-spending-your
Yes, it’s been a rather cushy and enormously profitable life for the “Wooster Square spokesperson for the lowly working class”. And to get re-elected? DeLauro merely has to have the label “Democrat” and be the “symbolic spokesperson” for locally-popular causes—and do virtually NOTHING else!
Don’t you wish YOU had a job like that?...
If you believe in returning our govt to the People—
rather than allowing it to be run by self-serving multimillionaires like DeLauro—then copy/paste this entire post into an email and send it to 3rd district friends, post on Facebook, etc. to share with others [you can use the Facebook and Twitter buttons below]—and help expose this fraud!http://rosadelauroexposed.wordpress.com/ https://www.facebook.com/RosaDeLauroCronyism
