Thank you very much for the National Debt, rising faster than at any time in Americas history, currently at $13,624,573,429,571.96 and rising at 4.18 billion a day!. Thanks for leaving every citizen of the U.S. with a debt of $44,057.64 and since less than 50% of us now pay taxes thanks for leaving US with a debt of $121.786.

Thanks for your supporting $60B initial stimulus, the $15B bailout for GM and Chrysler, the additional $825B for economic recovery package, the $192B additional anti-recession stimulus spending. The Cash for Clunkers and the additional $2B for that program and the permanent death tax.

Thanks for all your efforts in voting 98% of the time with our “representatives in DC” State data shows that more than 10,000 workers are without jobs in Haverhill, Lawrence and Methuen. You took office in 2007, according to the U.S. Labor Department the national unemployment rate was 4.7 %. We now have the 14 straight months of over 9.5%, in this district Lawrence has the highest unemployment rate in the state at 16.7%, Haverhill at 9.1% and Methuen at 9.9% to name just a few!.

Thanks for your vote on Obama Care before you ever read the bill! And the following documented increases hidden in the bill; 10 percent excise tax on indoor tanning services, elimination of the tax deduction for employers providing Medicare prescription drug coverage. Doubling the penalty for spending money from your tax-free health savings account to 20%. Capping the amount that employers can contribute to your tax-free flexible spending accounts at $2,500 a year. A 0.9% Medicare surtax to wages over $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for married couples, along with a 3.8% Medicare tax on investment income of these individuals. The ability to deduct itemized medical expenses now at 10% of your income, instead of 7.5% The employer mandate, which requires that all business with more than 50 employees offer approved health plans, or pay a tax of $2,000 per employee. The “Cadillac tax” on high-value health plans: beginning in 2018, plans costing more than $10,200 for individuals, or $27,500 for families, at a 40% excise tax.(Except for YOU in Congress!) The mandate, which requires everyone to purchase health insurance, or pay a tax: starting in 2014 at $95 or 1% of gross income, whichever is greater; and maxes out in 2016 at the greater of $695 or 2.5% of income. And the tax on homes sales that will go directly to Obama Care. In 2011 the W-2 tax form will be increased to show the value of whatever health insurance you are provided. It doesn’t matter if you’re retired. Your gross income WILL go up by the amount of insurance your employer paid for. You’ll be required to pay taxes on a larger sum of money. And thanks for the new governmental jobs with Obama Care 159 new governmental agencies to oversee the plan and the hiring of 11 thousand additional IRS agents to target Health insurance mandates.

Thanks for Cap and Trade, for the financial reform bill that NO ONE including its authors knows how it’ll work. Thanks for voting in favor of support for undocumented immigrants earning citizenship. i.e. AMNESTY (Oct 2007) and above all your vote for your own Congressional pay raise!(June 2009). And lastly thank you for not doing a budget and coming home before voting to keep the “Bush Tax Cuts” So a family of four earning $50,000 per year will pay more than $2,100 in higher taxes. A single mom earning $36,000 per year will pay over $1,100 more in taxes. Married senior citizens earning $40,000 per year will pay more than $1,400 in higher taxes.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Can you guess that you will not get MY vote on November 2nd!

Niki believes Nancy Pelosi is right more than the American people, (Just look at the way she dismissed her constituents on health care) Golnik is educated, smart, energetic and listens.

Mr. Golnik is the right solution to the tough problems the district and country faces. Niki Tsongas has voted us into the ground.

All you Dems out there.....did you know about this hidden TAX in your famous Health Care Bill?? Probably not!! Think before you vote in November.

****Will you ever sell your house?

***Did you know that if you sell your house after 2012 you will pay a 3.8% sales tax on it?

That's $3,800 on a $100,000 home etc.

When did this happen? It's in the health care bill. Just thought you should know.



So, this is "change you can believe in"?

Under the new health care bill - did you know that all real estate transactions will be subject to a 3.8% Sales Tax? The bulk of these new taxes don't kick in until 2013 If you sell your $400,000 home, there will be a $15,200 tax. This bill is set to screw the retiring generation who often downsize their homes. Does this stuff make your November and 2012 vote more important?

Oh, you weren't aware this was in the obamacare bill? Guess what, you aren't alone. There are more than a few members of Congress that aren't aware of it either

Never thought I'd say this but the Democrat party is on the fast path to outright Socialism, and must be stopped.

Holding my nose on this one...because of the stench brought by Nikki and her friends in Washington.

I have to admit I am holding my nose with this vote - for two reasons: 1) Golnik doesn't really inspire me and has a shady past, but he is better than the alternative; and 2) the unbearable stench coming from D.C. caused by Nikki and her "friends" down there. I don't think Jon will be a long-term solution to the problem but anyone who will vote against the current regime is a ++ in my book.

Tsongas has been in lock step with the most corrupt politician in the US - Nancy Pelosi.

Tsongas is just another Lib Dem hack who follows the party line
