From her disgusting Republican-Light voting record, lying about her commitment to seniors, and her history of throwing the Democratic Party under the bus, to her flat-out lying about how her death penalty vote effected her tenure as State Rep. as well as lying about her so-called support for Paid Sick Leave, I can't say I'm shocked with Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty's latest Tea Party/anti-Obamacare vote.
More Democrats defected on the House’s first anti-Obamacare bill of 2014 than on any other Obamacare-related vote to date, a blow to party unity and leadership’s advice that rank-and-file members stand strong against GOP “gotcha” bills.Given her God-awful anti-working families voting record while a member of the General Assembly, and her previous outrageous vote against the Affordable Care Act as well her stance against progressive principles that were embraced by her predecessor, with the laughable list of Republican Congressional candidates in the fifth district who have ZERO chance in winning the general election this November, voters in Western and parts of Central Connecticut who are negatively impacted by Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty's disdain for working families would better served by having an alternative to the female version of Joe LIEberman.
The legislation, which would require victims of security breaches through the HealthCare.gov insurance exchanges to be notified within two days, passed 291-122. Sixty-seven Democrats joined Republicans to vote for the bill.
While Republicans called the measure “good government” and “common sense,” many Democrats called it a political stunt that would put undue administrative burden on administration officials. Democrats also said the bill functions as a scare tactic against using the website when security breaches have never been a problem.
In short, the people who were once represented by Congressman Chris Murphy deserve better than an the current status quo.
