Holden's aa backbencher and supports Pelosi's liberal agenda 95%
They are House procedure votes such as approving meeting minutes Etc. all congressman vote yes to approve them. So I guess you could say the Rep. congressman vote with Pelosi. Deal with the facts instead of political propaganda.

18 years in Congress, and Tim Holden passed two bills - to rename 2 post offices, voted with Pelosi 95.6% of the time and refuses to repeal Obamacare. In the private sector, Donald Trump would say "You're fired"

Dave Argall had 25 years in the Pa. House and only passed the pay raise legislation that he authored and voted to increase his pension 50%. Argall needs to be held accountable for his actions and his lack of results.

They're both career politicians, however Argall is out for himself, he doesn't care about the area.

In agreement on both points. So without any choices they feel good about, voters are once again forced into choosing the lesser of 2 evils.

In 18 years Tim wrote up only 2 bills.. used stimulus money to buy out his own business.

He lies about the Argall pay raise.. that pay raise was for judges and the DA who didn't receive a raise in over 20 years.. however Dave Argall co-wrote a bill later to repeal it, so no raise ever went through. Tim however voted himself 4 pay raises and accepted 3 other raises.

Holden also claims to be pro life but since aug 2007 he has voted pro choice several times and chose to do a "no vote" 3 times when a prochoice vote who have tipped the scales. he's a liar who has been voting behind Pelosi nearly 96% of the time since Obama made the statement that there is no room for the "blue dogs" in the democratic party.

Tim has never been and will never be for the people. Nor can he make a positive ad because there is nothing good about his policies. Instead he resorts to flat out lies.

Sadly I admit I have voted for Tim in the Past and I have done extensive research.
Ignore the hype and lies, It's time to send Tim Packing.

You can ignore the lies but dont overlook the facts. Dave Argall was one of the authors of the pay raise legislation and he voted to approve it, and yes it was a pay raise for the legislatures that was repealed only because of the public outcry. Pa. is also dealing with a pension crisis thanks to Dave Argall and the rest who voted to increase there own pensions by 50% and all state employees by 25%. Why isn't Dave giving his 50% pension increase back to the taxpayers. Where is all the great legislature that Dave has introduced or past in the last 20+ years in office. I agree Tim may not be perfect but he is alot better then self centered Argall. Plus if you deal with facts the Republican Congressman also vote with Pelosi since the votes they are including are procedure votes to approve meeting minutes and adjourn meetings. Facts dont lie people do!!!

Dave and Tim are phonies! As a rule, voters nowadays treat these elections like sporting events, and it's made them stronger and more invincible. Whomever wins, our lives will absolutely not change for the better, only THEIRS will. Oh, and a few special interest beneficiaries.

Check them out posing for these planned photo opps. THEY ARE ACTORS playing charming roles for the oh so naive public.

For a few weeks leading up to every election, most of you feel on top of the world because you buy the skits and think they carrrrre about you.("Oooh...Ehhhh... Dave Argall shook my hand!")("Hey Maw, lookee. Tim Holden's ott in da field! Why he's a talkin' to da foo-mahs!):)

Suits and ties are... costumes that represent power to the masses. Sometimes one takes his jacket off and it , automatically, registers in our NAIVE brains as (gasping) "He's one of us".

People, get it through your heads: Both parties are beyond repair! Neither has the interests of the average citizen on the table, but they will say they do. Candidates are front-men who had to prove themselves--sell their as-es--to get party backing. Ultimately, most politicians pursue politics because they 1)NEED the power and prestige of high office to puff up their fragile egos, and 2)they want to fill their pockets.

Without their suits, ties and glisteny shoes, these are not the men you would look to for guidance and protection at a time of major crisis. Get over it. Both men are over-paid. They eat too well. And, they are very good public speakers who know how to pull the wool over the public's eyes.

Whichever wins, there should be no reason for them to believe that life is going to be a walk in the park.

Well said!!! People need to properly educate themselves rather then reading half truth, unfactual campaign mailings from the parties. At this point I would vote for anyone new in all races regardless of what party they are running under.
