Well now lets see if Fitzpatrick was serious about Term Limits. Mike we would rather see you submit a bill eliminating Pensions and benefits for elected officials, this may cure the term limit issue, I know for sure it would save Americans Tens of Millions of dollars.

How about disavowing your "Loyalty Pledge" to the Tea Bag Party and go back to representing all of the people in your district.

I'm sure Ms. Boockvar is a lovely person, but as a candidate she was a total dud. Too bad - this was a winnable seat.

Mrs. Boockvar stated at the debate in Bristol " I am NOT a Politician" Seems to me that running for a elected office in 3 different elections makes you a politician. So she attempted to decieve or just plain lie to the voters. The voters didn't buy it. 44,000 didn't buy it. The people have spoken.
