Rosa DeLauro and Wayne Winsley had a televised debate on Face the State. The full broadcast can be viewed here.


New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie came to Connecticut to stump for Linda McMahon on Monday. The governor, a rising star in the Republican Party, planned to partake in rallies in Stamford, Waterbury and Glastonbury.

Chris Murphy’s camp criticized the two Republicans in a statement.

“Chris Christie and Mitt Romney’s tax cuts for millionaires and tax hikes for the middle class have failed time and again, but Linda McMahon wants to give them another try in Connecticut,” said campaign spokesman Ben Marter.

DeLauro has fought for NOTHING except the DNC Steering Committee's express demands. She is their go-fer, and nobody does cheap partisan propaganda better than Rosa! Jimmy Tickey is a cheap shill for the campaign slush fund that rolls dupes' donations into two places: Rosa's Roman banquets held every Tuesday evening at her DC townhouse for the party elites and their extremist ideologues OR into the DNC general fund, where Rosa makes payments to upkeep her seniority in the Democrat house leadership. Rosa paid $1,000,000 for her chairmanship of the House Agricultural Appropriations subcommittee in 2007. It had nothing to do with seniority or leadership, but how much money she diverted into DNC coffers. It takes a million to be a leader, and keeping it requires "maintenance fees" starting at $100,000 per year. Rosa's record shows she has achieved nothing in her 22 years. No sponsored bills ever became law. In the Face the State debate, she referred to her National Infrastructure Bank legislation, but failed to mention its been around for 16 years, and not even Pelosi or Obama would consider passing it into law! That's how bitterly extreme Rosa is. Forget Diaper or Rice Acts: her hated bank can't get anwhere because Rosa has made too many enemies in her own party, and is completely Persona Non Grata in the the Republican-led house. Rosa is finished. Its over. She is ineffective as a legislator, horrible as a whip, and awful as an advocate. Time for change!!

DeLauro's answers all were virtually identical to those she gave the previous Sunday at a church-sponsored forum on poverty—even though all the questions were different! Winsley: "I will never vote for things that I know & believe to be ridiculous and absurd"--like DeLauro's bill that counts ketchup as a vegetable. Notice that she has a binder to look up answers while Winsley is talking. After 22 years you'd think she wouldn't need it to be an open-book exam! Delauro: creating jobs means getting constructions unions to get my support for govt-paid "infrastructure" TEMPORARY jobs. Winsely: "You can't love jobs but hate job creators [i.e. business]". Re. New Haven violence, DeLauro: childproof locks on guns. Winsley: give kids role models and a future. Re. illegal immigration, Winsley: "America has always been a welcoming nation...We're a nation of immigrants...It should be as difficult to enter the US as it is to enter a Holiday Inn: we all have to check in." Debate format was too short to address ObamaCare adequately, but you can read plenty here: http://RosaDeLauroExposed.wordpress.com/
