First-term Congresswoman Kathy Dahlkemper, D-Erie, is facing Republican Mike Kelly in her bid for reelection.Dahlkemper said she supports pay-go legislation, ensuring new programs and bills coming from Congress are paid for up front. “I also was part of a bill that passed where we’re going to go after $98 billion of over-payments that the government makes to different contractors,” said Dahlkemper.
She also wants an audit of all existing federal programs and agencies to see whether or not they are worth taxpayer dollars.
But Kelly, a small business owner from Butler, criticized Dahlkemper for her party’s tendency to overspend and over-regulate.
The former Butler city councilman said there is a disconnect between what’s happening in Washington and what’s happening in PA’s 3rd District.
Kelly said if elected he would represent his constituents’, not his partys’ interests.
“The government right now has grown so big,” said Kelly. “It was never supposed to be this big. We’re looking for a smaller government. We’re looking for a stronger defense. We’re looking for things that create pathways to prosperity.”Governor Palin, Dahlkemper sold herself to Bart Stupak and his “coalition” who were swarmed with phone calls, emails and faxes (myself included) to block Obamacare-which she conveniently did not mention above, and is against pro-life by supporting tax-payer funded abortions. It’s a shame that she DID have the choice, chose life but now she is against it. It is the ultimate betrayal, and her track record shows it.
She is part of one of the most prominent families in Erie, which is ironic because of their high-profile jewelry business will be taxed to the max if Obama gets his wish.
