Dump Esty

Elizabeth Esty Republican-Light principles are more in tune with the mindset of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan than with progressives and working families in Connecticut...

With Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty's latest outrageous vote against the Affordable Care Act, when it comes to 2014, Daily Kos nails it.

Liberalism has some basis in the belief that government is part of the solution to our societal and individual problems, and not part of the problem as some moron lied about 30 years ago. If the ACA fails, or even if there's a false impression that the ACA has failed, health care for everyone could be set back decades or permanently lost. Liberalism itself will go back to being a dirty word and we may end up seeing a repeat of 2010 in both 2014 and 2016.

These 39 Democratic cowards just gave out a big scream that the ACA is a failure, Obama is a failure, Liberalism is a failure, and Democrats are a failure. Each and everyone of these people should be primaried.

[...]

District: CT 05

Name: Esty, Elizabeth

Obama 2012 Margin: 8.2

Population without health insurance: 66,677

Percentage without health insurance: 9.5

Percentage below poverty line: 12

As someone who didn't hold back with my disapproval of then State Rep. Elizabeth Esty's Republican-Light voting record, as well as her stance on Paid Sick Leave, her outrageous insensitivity towards seniors, her proposal to gut social programs, and, as a member of Congress, her quest to seek "common ground" with a Congresswoman who supported the Castle Doctrine, I'm not surprised with her latest outrageous support for the Tea Party's desire to gut the Affordable Care Act.

As the CT Mirror notes, this isn't the first time Esty has embraced the principles of the far right

With approval of Upton’s bill, House Republicans have voted 47 times to repeal or amend the ACA and this is the second time Esty has joined them.

In July, she voted for a House GOP bill that would delay the ACA’s requirement that nearly all Americans have health insurance.

The bill was promoted by House Republicans after Obama postponed the ACA’s requirement that all businesses with 50 or more employees provide health insurance for their workers.

With her lastest act of outrage, progressives in the fifth district who voiced their disapproval of Rep. Esty, but held their nose in support for her after the 2012 primary, should make thier outrage known by suggesting a primary challenge to the Congresswoman in 2014. The people in the district once represented by Chris Murphy deserve better than an individual who has a long track record of throwing those who are in need under the bus.

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
