Schwartz Voted to Cut Medicare by $700 Billion...

(ROCKLEDGE, PA)… This week, Ardsley native, Veteran Marine Fighter Pilot, and Delta Captain Joe Rooney was endorsed for Congress by Pennsylvania Congressmen Jim Gerlach, Pat Meehan, Mike Fitzpatrick and Charlie Dent.  On the heels of their endorsement, Fiscal Conservative Congressional Candidate Joe Rooney sent the following letter to his opponent Allyson Schwartz:

Sent via Mail, Email and Fax

Dear Ms. Schwartz,

Why did you vote to cut Medicare by over 700 Billion dollars? You are destroying Medicare for families and seniors and not working to protect us here at home.

Why did you vote to gut Medicare, not just once, but repeatedly? You voted to ration health care and place nameless, faceless bureaucrats in charge of our health care here at home.  That’s just plain wrong.


Simply put, you cut hundreds of billions of dollars from Medicare to pay for rationing health care, and empowered a board of unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats to gut Medicare and hurt us.  We don’t need rationing and we sure don’t need more government bureaucrats. 

Fact: Congressional Budget Office (CBO):  Latest estimate for Obamacare’s Medicare cuts are $ 741 Billion. (Source:  “Estimates for the Insurance Coverage Provisions of the Affordable Care Act Updated for the Recent Supreme Court Decision,” Congressional Budget Office, July 2012)

Congresswoman Schwartz, you need to explain to taxpayers why you consistently vote against us.  As always, the taxpayers and I await your answer to these very important issue questions. 


Joe Rooney

Candidate for Congress

On Tuesday, August 22nd, the Pennsylvania Constitution Party gave up the quest to have their Presidential Candidate, Virgil Goode on the 2012 PA Ballot. Though they had collected 175% of the required Signatures, they were forced off the Ballot by the GOP Challenge. Jim Clymer, Party Chair and their VP Candidate explained that the Pa Party could not afford the almost $100,000 in court costs that they might accrue. Jim commented “The Challenge represented a monolithic establishment party which is intent on denying people the opportunity to vote for anyone who might criticize it from a limited government non-interventionist perspective”.

(apparently they found many of the Constitution Party signatures to be invalid ) They always say that. Just the fact that they say it will convince a lot of uninformed people that it's true. How did they decide that 44,000 were invalid? Do you think they actually looked up the 44,000 people to see if they were valid or not? A man named Carl Romanelli turned in 95,000 signatures to run as a minor party candidate in 2006. They never counted his signatures. He was not allowed to be on the ballot as a choice.

I am a member of the Democratic Party. They have never steered me wrong. Ms. Schwartz gets my vote. I can't trust the Republicans.

The affordable Care Act is only 35% about health care. The remaining cryptic elements and hidden funding packages establish the cornerstone for socialism and have only to do with these Progressives' drive for power. The moderate Democrats no longer exist and you have drunk deeply of the Cool-Ade. Try spending a couple of weeks reading ALL of Obamacare first, then post your opinion.
