06/17/10 Peter Schiff Endorses Rick Torres for Congressional Run Against Greenwich Resident Jim Himes

Excerpts From Peter Schiff's Endorsement Of Rick Torres

"It’s not just about electing a Republican; it’s about electing the right Republican. There are a lot of Republicans in Congress right now and most of them are part of the problem, not part of the solution. So if you really believe in the Constitution, free market capitalism, in individual liberty, in sound money, you have to vote for those things. You have to vote for someone who is committed to those things. If you think everything is okay in Washington, if you like the status quo, then go ahead and rubber stamp the convention’s nominee. But if you really want real change, then you’re going to have to support a candidate who will deliver that change."

"And from what I know of Rick Torres, he is the guy in this race, he is the only person in this race that has a chance of bringing those values back to Washington. That is why I support him."

"And if there was ever a year when we can beat back the establishment, and elect a candidate that will really bring back our values and principles to Washington, this is the year to do it. And don’t accept the word from the party elite that no you can’t win. A real grassroots campaign can win, it can win in Connecticut, and it can win 2010. And I thank everyone for coming and I wish Rick the best of luck."

- Peter Schiff, US Senate Primary Candidate

Both Rick Torres and Peter Schiff are ICaucus endorsed candidates.

06/17/10 Dan Debicella Criticizes Greenwich Resident Jim Himes Hypocrisy

Debicella Criticizes Himes Hypocrisy


Friends,
In a press release today I criticized Jim Himes for his recent comments during a telephone town hall meeting he sponsored. Himes stated during the call that he would be willing to support a 1% spending cut. His statement was insultingly too little and embarrassingly too late.

Jim Himes voted to increase discretionary government spending by 22%. He supported an $800 billion stimulus package designed to create jobs, yet unemployment still hovers at 10%.

During the call, Jim Himes called for a budget “that in the aggregate reduces spending 1%.” Himes stated that the world is looking for “an indication that we have the political will, that we have a plan to over time restore fiscal balance.”

This is yet another example of Jim Himes’s hypocrisy. You can’t vote for a 22% spending increase in Washington and then come back to Connecticut and talk about a 1% spending cut and think that makes it all go away. People are savvy when it comes to DC insiders and spending, particularly in this political climate.

Folks are concerned about spending and they’re angry with their incumbent congressman. A 1% cut following Jim Himes’s 22% increase doesn’t fool anyone. Jim Himes’s voting record has led to a $1.4 trillion deficit and that 1% cuts do not begin to make up the difference.

But we know that there is a better way. I have proposed a hard spending cap that will force politicians of both parties to make tough decisions about how tax dollars are spent as well as an end to political earmarks that simply reward politicians for voting with party insiders. My proposal would limit the size of the federal government to no more than 20% of the economy. Currently government spending represents 26% of the economy.

My plan also calls for a repeal of the stimulus spending after which we should return those dollars to families and small businesses in the form of a tax cut. Putting money back in people’s pockets is the best way to jump-start the economy. My proposal to cut the payroll tax in half would return $1,500 to every middle class family, give every small business a tax cut, and reduce the federal deficit by $150 billion.

Thank you for your support as we point out Jim Himes’s hypocrisy to the Fourth Congressional District.

All my best,

-Dan
