Wrong 2 cut food stamps for Americans under econ pressure while Congress continues tax breaks 4 oil companies, billionaires

Wayne Winsley (R): The candidate has been campaigning around New Haven County. This past week he’s been to New Haven and Naugatuck, according to his Facebook page.

Murphy, Himes, DeLauro and the entire lot "representing" CT are contributing to our nation's BANKRUPTCY with their votes! If CT voters were better informed, they would send NO more DEMS to congress, and replace all these "career politicians" with the principled "Limited Government" candidates, such as Wayne Winsley running against DeLauro, and Steve Obsitnik against Himes. http://www.obsitnik.com/ Please check out Winsley's FB, or his website (http://winsleyforcongress.com), and see these impressive videos: **Wayne Winsley Rocks Republican Convention** Hartford, CT May 18, 2012. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWPBo-TE0-4&feature=em-share_video_user Himes is clueless as to the damage he has done in less than 4 years! Here is a one-minute example of his treatment of those who believe in NOT spending $$$ you don't have, and not running up the 5 TRILLIONS more in DEBT Himes voted for: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AQ3pWzMwWs
