Blog: Nancy Comes to Town

Statement

Nancy Pelosi, the most liberal, biggest spending, most fiscally irresponsible Speaker of the House in our nation's history is coming to town -- this Saturday, June 26th; to raise money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee -- the DCCC.

The DCCC spent well over $1.6 million in the last election on behalf of Steve Driehaus. The DCCC gave thousands directly to the Driehaus Campaign -- and spent more than a million dollars on TV ads alone.

Why would they have spent so much in the campaign last time? Because they knew, despite what Driehaus was telling the people here at home, that he would be a reliable vote for their liberal policies: big spending, big government, a government takeover of our health care, and all the rest. In fact, he has voted with Pelosi almost 95% of the time.

Why is Nancy Pelosi coming to Cincinnati to raise money for the DCCC which will benefit Driehaus again? Because if they can get him re-elected, he'll continue to be what National Journal called "A reliable backer of party leadership."

It's ironic that Pelosi is coming to Cincinnati to raise campaign cash, because this week the Democrats finally announced officially, that they're giving up on even trying to pass a budget for this year -- no limits on what they spend at all. So while they're raising big bucks from their political allies here in Cincinnati, they'll be spending your money like there's no tomorrow in Washington.

If you're as outraged as I am about this, there's a way you can weigh in. Please help us to offset, at least in part, the big bucks Pelosi will be raising to benefit Driehaus. You can make a contribution to my campaign by clicking here, or you can volunteer to help, or get a yard sign, by signing up on my homepage.

I'm sure you know where I stand on the liberal, out-of-control spending spree going on in Washington right now, and this is a way to join with me in doing something about it. Defeating Driehaus and Pelosi in this Congressional District, this Fall, will result in us being one seat closer to the 39 seats we need to pick up in the House this year to topple Pelosi as Speaker. And as I've mentioned before, we picked up 53 seats when I was first elected to Congress back in 1994 (Newt Gingrich, the Contract with America, etc.) so it is well within our reach, if we all work together.

I know people often say "this is the most important election ever." It's almost become a cliché. But this time I think it's true.

Our nation is at a crossroads. We can continue down the road Obama, Pelosi, and Reid are leading us to bigger government, bigger debt, higher taxes, a stagnant economy and high unemployment. Or we can change the way we're going, and put us on the path of Freedom, personal responsibility, lower taxes, a re-energized economy and job creation.

The choice is yours. The stakes couldn't be higher. The time for action is now.
