Someone should have asked him how his sister, Harry Teague, is doing. Nice photo of Pearce with the power point presentation. Hey, he could be a government official!(That's sarcasm. I also see nobody asked him about how he like to vote against veterans while rhetorically "supporting" veterans, among other things...)(or if someone did, it didn't end up in print. This guy give out Kool Aid Pops or soemthing after the presentation?)

The bush tax cuts were followed by dismal job creation numbers. Constantly babbling about tax cuts as a cure-all makes you a zombie of sorts

An old TV show," Laugh In" had the The Flying Fickle Finger of Fate Award for dubious achievement and incompetence. In New Mexico this award should go to Congressman Steve Pearce for his failure to create any real jobs and leading us down the path to a second recession. It was the policies of the Bush Administration that got us in the first recession. Now it is the Republican cabal in Congress that will gives us the second one. Thank you, Congressman Pearce.

Mr. Pearce is a multi-millionaire and voted to lower his taxes in Congress to the lowest level in decades. However no jobs are being created as he promised. If you are a senior citizens on Social Security or Medicare this guy is out to get you to lower the debt.

"This guy give out Kool Aid Pops or soemthing". Maybe an English lesson would have been better for you.

I'll hand one thing to Pearce--he totes the party propaganda to the max (even if the dude from Allen theaters had to whisper him his lines) everywhere he goes. That Stevie, he's such a good boy!!

Cause that's what events like this are designed to do--you all know that right? Blow smoke up your big dumb uninformed "independent leans Republican" heinies.

I doubt he even knows what the dammmmed debt ceiling is, much less how the Bush tax cuts alone amount to a huge chunk of our deficit---but he'll keep on helping his corporate overlords evil plan to bankrupt America artificially. Why would they do that, you ask?

Just so they can make every dumb schmuck out there think it's Barack Obama's fault so he'll lose the next election--and they'll be able to get a Rethugulin puppet back in the White House again, freeing them from oversight or regulation or tax contributions!!!!!!!

The reason the economy sucks so bad right now is not Obama's failure to get it going, folks. It's because large corporations are colluding with Republicans and their money making PAC's to NOT do the spending and hiring or infrastructure development that would help the economy grow. The big banks are not loaning the seed money to expand small business or help homeowners buy homes. They have bought off key Right Wing Congressional and Senate players so that NOTHING will happen in our legislature. Why do you think McConnell stated his top goal for the four years after the 2008 elections was to keep Obama from being elected again? Not fix the economy or get more people back to work--just a political strategy, like they are playing capture the flag.

There is documented evidence emerging that these "big" people have decided and are conspiring together to play a long--but very dangerous and rotten--game. Bring the US economy to it's knees by whatever means necessary. Make voters miserable and confused and desperate for help. Get a new Congress elected who will NEVER, EVER stand in their way again in raping and pillaging and destroying what is yours and mine. Get rid of regulations, oversight, any protections for pesky little guys like you and me. What they want is called an oligarchy, ladies and gents, a government owned and run by and for corporations. And you will let them have it for the stupidist, most uninformed reasons.

You little idiots think it's all about abortion, taxes and social security "going bankrupt"? Keep on voting for the Pearces of the world so the puzzle pieces keep coming together for the dark side---then don't cry to me when you find out you've been HAD.

Congressman Pearce is a slave to the Koch Brothers and their far right wing propaganda - no thinking required.

Democrats should be blasting this guy, but they are afraid of their own shadows.

George Soros is nothing compared to the Koch Brothers. Koch Industries, an oil refiner, is the nationís second largest private company with about $100 billion in annual revenue. Soros is chairman of Soros Fund Management, a hedge fund As of June 30, 2009, the hedge fund had holdings valued at $4.2 billion. The malevolent Koch Brothers have billions more than Soros. Plus they bankroll the Tea party group.

In lobbying Koch Industries: spent $50,972,700 and
Soros Fund Management spent a paltry $860,000.

Nice Try

Forbes says Soros is worth 14.2 billion. Another example of one of your little white lies perhaps. Did you also forget that Soros hands over a few million to support his left-wing media sites? Nah, you'd never be that big of a liar, would you?

The truth hurts - Koch Industries far out-spends Sorosí hedge fund and think tank,$57.4 million to $12.8 million. Hand puppets Congressman Pearce and Governor Martinez got thousands of dollars from the Koch brothers.
