Carney on the air

And in the news.

A TL story touts the advantages of caring for seniors in their homes instead of a nursing home tying into Chris Carney's Caregiver Tax Relief Act of 2008 (HR 6448). He also visited a federal training center in Alabama that will train first responders to deal with "Bombing rural Wal-Marts would be devastating to America,” among other things. He also introduced the “Made in America Act,” (H.R. 6611) which offers tax cuts to support American companies that keep their jobs and businesses “made in America.” That's a tough nut to crack.

Restore Honor

The Chris Hackett camp responded to the spot by saying that Carney wears Nancy Pelosi's underwear or something like that. Memo to my GOP friends, it's going to be hard to vilify a soft spoken grandmother even if she is from San Francisco.

And the Sierra Club has a response to the Freedom Watch radio ads about offshore drilling backing Carney.

Listen here.

You're right, Nancy Pelosi isn't that bad, but her family has some interesting ties.

"Pelosi may soon have to explain how her own family is or is not part of this “culture of corruption,” as Ronald Kessler for NewsMax reports that her son, Paul Pelosi Jr., is on the payroll of InfoUSA.

The New York Times reported InfoUSA’s practice of selling lists of names and data on elderly or infirm Americans to scam artists who’ve bilked these people out of large sums of money. According to the Times, “InfoUSA advertised lists of ‘Elderly Opportunity Seekers,’ 3.3 million older people ‘looking for ways to make money,’ and ‘Suffering Seniors,’ 4.7 million people with cancer or Alzheimer’s disease. ‘Oldies but Goodies’ contained 500,000 gamblers over 55 years old. ... One list said: ‘These people are gullible. They want to believe their luck has changed.’” "


But we know the area has no problem having seniors defrauded of their Social Security checks. Money for seniors is better spent outside the area because apparently if they are falling for these scams, they must have too much free cash.
(end sarcasm)

Maybe the Republicans should point out it isn't just their party that puts unqualified nepotism into high profile positions.
