Letter: Guinta is best choice for Congress

To the editor:

New Hampshire residents are concerned with the economy and putting Granite Staters back to work.

Former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter’s flailing campaign has been throwing out red herrings and shiny objects for the past month to do anything to distract you, the voter, from remembering why she lost by 12 points in 2010. Let me refresh your memory.

Carol Shea-Porter voted in favor of Obamacare, which robs $716 billion from Medicare and will dramatically increase taxes on the middle-class. Shea-Porter voted for a stimulus bill which did everything in its power to reward fat-cat Democrat, special-interest Washington lobbyists. And Congresswoman Shea-Porter voted for a cap-and-trade bill which would have made energy prices even higher than they are now.

Oh yes, and she also said she made no pretense of voting for and or working with members of the other party to get things done. And why was that? Because she voted with Nancy Pelosi 100-percent of the time because she believed she was right 100-percent of the time.

I’ll be voting to re-elect Frank Guinta this year. He has been an independent and thoughtful voice for the good middle-class jobs this state desperately needs.
