Congresswoman Shea-Porter Keeps Spending Unbudgeted Tax Dollars

This past Tuesday Carol Shea-Porter voted to spend taxpayer dollars, once again. Despite Congress not passing a budget this year, our Congresswoman continues to spend. This time for another $26 billion to bail out states. In the face of a $1.5 trillion dollar deficit, does this seem responsible to you?

In addition, The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) will be running ads in New Hampshire praising Congresswoman Shea-Porter and Hodes for their efforts. These ads also come at a price for AFSCME, $2.5 million dollars.

These recent events truly show the allegiances our Congresswoman has made while serving our country. Finance reports show that in the 2nd quarter of 2010, Carol Shea-Porter recieved more than $70,000 in contributions from Washington lobbyists.

On Wednesday, Frank Guinta had this to say about our Congresswoman: "Carol Shea-Porter says she doesn't stand for Washington special interests, but her actions and her bank account tell a different tale. Carol Shea-Porter showered with her vote on this bill that she stands with Washington lobbyists, and against New Hampshire taxpayers."
