The Jesse Kelly for Congress campaign sent out a press release yesterday. Later that afternoon the left leaning Rum Romanism and Rebellion criticized the Kelly campaign for the statement, using the word “Alarmism.” The press release pointed out the staggeringly high debt that will result from the latest Giffords supported Obama spending spree. Tedski chastises Kelly for calling the bill (HR 3288) “pork-laden” and points out the bill was related to funding transportation and HUD, among other things. That did not keep the liberals from filling the bill full of earmarks for pet projects. Here is an article from the LA Times and a list of pork from Citizens Against Government Waste.
Here is a video of Rep. Barney Frank in 2008 saying Fannie and Freddie are in good shape*
After Tedski finishes attacking Kelly for wanting to reduce deficit spending, he calls him out for being against the financial bill (HR 4173) sponsored by Rep. Barney Frank. The same economic genious who said Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were not a threat to the American economy. The inmates are running the asylum when Barney Frank is writing bills to save the economy from the “dangers of the private sector.”
It is hard to tell how the previously Teflon-coated Giffords will fare in 2010 but if the left wants to hang their hat on the Obama deficits and Barney Frank’s prescription for economic health, good luck with that.
