Chris Murphy vs Linda McMahon: Keep Your Eye on the Ball

McMahon vs Murphy: It’s critical that we focus on how each candidate might impact our lives.

 Rather than write my usual type of blog which causes many of my devoted followers to become dyspepsic,  I’ll just do a purely informational one.
After all, who cares about the circus surrounding both McMahon and Murphy? It’s critical that we focus on how each candidate might impact our lives.
 
Here is a sampling of Congressman’s Murphy’s voting record and what Linda McMahon has stated on the record.

Congressman Murphy has repeatedly stated, “I support health care reform because I believe that quality, affordable health care coverage should be a right, not a privilege available only to those who can afford it.
Linda McMahon has said that Obamacare is the wrong approach. “ObamaCare will increase costs; repeal it.”

Chris Murphy has stated that the NRA has more control over Congress than any other group. He has supported closing the Gun Show Loophole and restrict show sales. 
Linda McMahon fully supports Second Amendment rights and has the highest rating given by NRA for a candidate without a voting record.

Congressman Murphy voted NO on barring EPA from regulating greenhouse gases.
Linda McMahon stated that she strongly opposes replacing coal and oil with alternatives

Chris Murphy voted YES on extending unemployment benefits from 39 weeks to 59 weeks.
He voted NO on the Ryan budget: Medicare choice, tax & spending cuts.

Linda McMahon believes that the Bush tax cuts be made permanent including the top 1 percent. . 
Chris Murphy voted to keep student loan rates at 3.4% instead of 6%.
Murphy voted NO on terminating the Home Affordable Mortgage Program.
He voted YES on $15B bailout for GM and Chrysler.

Linda McMahon strongly opposes amnesty for illegal immigrants and believes that “Immigration laws--like all laws--must be enforced”
McMahon believes that we should expand our armed forces.

I hope this is helpful in giving you some insight into how your choice for senator may impact yourlife.

"After looking into the matter, her campaign manager, Corry Bliss, claimed that a glitch in the city’s tax collection system resulted in the McMahons never receiving the original bill." The Day And who would have figured that come July property taxes would be due in CT.? She's a nothing.

People are fools if they vote for Murphy, career politician, who can't even manage his own checkbook and family budget!! You want to give him control over the national budget and DEBT problem?!!! It is his ilk, who care only about their own political careers, and gaining more POWER over ordinary citizens' lives, who have caused the present crisis of overspending, where 40 cents of every $$$ spent by the federal government is BORROWED!!!!! No wonder we are on the brink of national fiscal disaster, because most of congress consists of incompetent career politicians (both parties) who think they are so superior to the ordinary 'little people.' Such are the attitudes of those like Murphy, who represents that very unaccountable, don't worry about spending money you don't have--especially if it's the TAXPAYERS' money!!

Chris Murphy has been a great Congressman and will make a great Senator. Would not trust Linda McMahon as far as I could throw her!

That article just illustrates perfectly why Mr. Murphy should be banished from Washington DC and possibly banned even as a visitor. Thank you for letting others see just how bad he is.

CT voted Blumenthal in and he lied about being in Vietnam... So does a non career politician have a chance? Some people think lawyers make better laws than business folks.. CT enjoy your mediocrity and corrupt lawyers!
