It seems many readers support Adam Smith because he supports veterans. If elected, Dick Muri will support our military every bit as much as Smith has done. Therefore, consider other reasons for casting your vote.

In the past, Smith has been touted as a moderate but he has voted with Nancy Pelosi’s agenda more than 96 percent of the time. He supported all of the bailouts even though the Inspector General has stated that the fraud and waste has run into the hundreds of millions of dollars.

He voted for the cap and trade bill even though it will cost the average family close to $1,600 more in energy costs when fully implemented. When Congress was getting ready to pass Obamacare, the Republicans offered an amendment to put Congress in the same plan as the rest of the country but the Democrats said no way.

Smith went along with the party on the financial reform law even though it did nothing about the real money losers, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Muri will work to undo the damage caused by the Pelosi agenda whereas Smith will only continue to support more of the same.
