In New Ad, Esty Says Roraback\’s Allegations Are Not True

by Categorized: Uncategorized Tagged: , , Date:

Democrat Elizabeth Esty\’s new congressional campaign ad says statements previously made by her opponent, Republican Andrew Roraback, are not true.

In his latest ad, Roraback used old video footage of Esty — a resident at the time — at a Cheshire town council meeting saying that citizens should move if they don’t like tax increases. The ad says Esty went on to increase property taxes and fees, hurting senior citizens and families.

Esty served on the Chesire town council for a few years. She was also a one-term state representative.

Esty\’s new ad says Roraback\’s allegations are false. The ad says Esty led the effort to reduce property taxes for senior citizens while helping to balance the budget and improve schools, and it says she will protect social security and Medicare.

The ad criticizes Roraback, saying that he supports proposals that would raise the retirement age and force seniors to pay more for Medicare.

Esty and Roraback are vying for the 5th Congressional District seat.

    So, we now know that Elizabeth Esty has the following markers as part of her political DNA:

    – Raised in Oak Park, IL (a well known incubator of liberal thought)
    – PFLAG associations and sympathies
    – WOWPAC membership (speaks volumes)
    – Harvard/Yale – both Red-diaper baby playpens
    – Clerked for a progressive MA federal judge
    – Sought and obtained Labor’s endorsement
    – An advocate for our failed Public Education system
    – History of supporting tax hikes in her town, district and state
    – Seeks Energy & Commerce membership if elected
    (Perhaps to help secure political paybacks and help her DEEP hubby?
    Perhaps to help promote nationalization of the nation’s energy industry?)

    Read this list of DNA markers and ask yourself the question:

    Does ANY of this even REMOTELY suggest that Elizabeth Esty is a MODERATE? A MODERATE?!??!

    Make no mistake: Elizabeth Esty is a died-in-the wool ultra-progressive – through and through.

    If elected to CT-5, Esty will go to Washington hell-bent on supporting the progressive agendas of Barack Obama and will carry Nancy Pelosi’s water to help make Obama’s dream of a “United Socialist States of America” a reality.

    Want an idea of what a Socialist America might look at? Look no further than Chavez’s Venezuela; or Kirchner’s Argentina; or Castro’s Cuba; or Morale’s Bolivia.

    Think that it couldn’t happen here? Study the history of leaders like Obama and Esty and then think again.

    No more Democrats.

    Our nation and state cannot afford them.
