NY GOP: Hochul No Profile in Courage
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Becky Miller
Albany, NY...August 20, 2012...Today the New York GOP released the following statement in response to Kathy Hochul's new television ad:
Kathy Hochul's claims of bipartisanship and 'bucking her own party' would be admirable, if they didn't require the willing suspension of disbelief.
Congresswoman Hochul's new ad touting her "tough choices," by voting for the balanced budget amendment and for cutting foreign aid to Pakistan are nothing more than window dressing.
If she was serious about addressing these issues in a bipartisan manner, Congresswoman Hochul would be calling on Senator Gillibrand and her colleagues in the Democrat controlled Senate to pass the balanced budget amendment, reign in out-of-control Government spending, and reduced the tax and regulatory burdens facing our job creators and small business owners.
Like we said, it would require the willing suspension of disbelief.
Since going to Washington in 2011, Kathy Hochul has been a consistent rubberstamp for the Obama-Pelosi agenda, voting six times against a repeal of Obamacare, which continues to raise taxes on the middle class, raids $741 Billion from Medicare - leaving our seniors at risk - and has led to trillion dollar budget deficits.
New Yorkers deserve better, and come November, voters in the 27th Congressional District will elect Chris Collins, a proven job creator and government reformer who will balance our budget, grow our economy, and reform our tax code.
