Fascinating, how about Rep. McCarthy addresses the real issues that everyone is talking about, the state of the economy and the deficit. How about she addresses her rubber stamp voting record for anything Nancy Pelosi put's in front of her face. How about she explains her votes for Health Care? Where does she stand on extending the Bush tax cuts?

It would be great to find out in a forum with her constituents... you know, like a Town Hall, but Carolyn McCarthy is scared of her constituents and won't meet with them. Perhaps she could hold one in Nancy Pelosi's district in San Francisco since that is who she is really representing.

Just think about this.....If Carolyn McCarthy's husband had a gun on him the night Colin Fergison shot passengers on the LIRR, he might still be alive !
People have the right to be able to protect themselves in this country. Instead McCarthy is trying to disarm the honest citizen. We are being turned into defensless sheep ready for the slaughter.
Carolyn.....Go home !

Truth Hurts you are spot on about Mc Carthy. She voted for a HealthCare Bill she never looked at and went against a majority of her constituents numerous times. She forgot that we employ her now it's time to fire her.

Carolyn McCarthy has taken on an agenda with a President who is "talked about like a dog." Anyone can see the exacerbating economic policies she supported over the past two years especially has worsened the local economy. What Ms. McCarthy doesn't get is that most Long Islanders understand these polcies don't work (ie, "this dog don't hunt!")

Carolyn McCarthy has had her 15 minutes of fame. Let's face it, she got into office on the coat tails of her paralyzed husband. To their credit, the couple got through a tedious and courageous rehab period. But this does not make CM a viable lawmaker and government leader. Time to oust her and get in someone more competent and focused on the needs of their constituents.

This is ONE out of touch Congresswoman. She voted for Obamalosi's failed stimulus boondoggle, she voted for the destruction of our health care system, cap and tax and just about anything that her puppet master, Nancy Pelosi and her DC cohorts ask her to put her signature on. If she even spoke to a half dozen nurses, this former nurse would have quickly learned that Obamacare is nothing more than a power grab: to control 17% of the US economy and make more and more people dependent on the government. We're going to end up like Greece only no economy in the world is large enough to bail us out. The very survival of this great country depends on blocking the Obamalosi agenda for the next two year.

And for anyone that needs another reason to NOT vote for McCarthy, then all you need to know is how easily she has stepped into the big money politics of Washington. She took money from lobbyist now charged with funneling illegal cash to politicians and now is returning $53,000 of that money, and this isn't the first time. She won't be returning the $4.5 million in special interest money though that she steered toward this lobbyist's clients. She is a big spending, Nancy Pelosi loving Democrat and no longer the innocent little 1 issue newcomer to Washington. Time for her to GO!

By the way, when is Rep. McCarthy actually going to address her constituents? Why does she always speak through a spokesperson? I guess she doesn't have time for the peons, she is now part of the political elite, she shouldn't have to answer to anyone.

Actually, her husband died as a result of his wounds, and it was her son, who was also shot, who went through extensive rehabilitation. Just like to be accurate.
I wholeheartedly agree - 15 mins are up for you, Carolyn McCarthy, and your arrogant positions. You voted for healthcare, but now don't want to face your angry constituents. I guess she got sucked into the whole beltway, bloodsucking vortex, wherein congress merely works to get re-elected, not to serve the people.
People, let's all vote for Fran Becker for Congress, and send Carolyn packing.(There is a huge need for nurses - she can go back to her former profession.)

Hey Carolyn, when is your next or last Town Hall meeting? Oh right, you DON'T have them, why would you when you vote 98% of the time with Pelosi. You are a RUBBER STAMP.

If you want amnesty, rewards for illegals, no representation and to be ignored, vote for Carolyn Career Politician McCarthy. If you want change, for for FRAN BECKER.

Rumors in the know says she was separated from her husband at the time of the shooting. Yes, she votes with Pelosi all the itme, and she toes the party line 100%. Her one issue was gun control and she's done nothing to acocmlish that goal. And yes, except for liberal extremes in her district, she is out of touch with the needs of most of her consitutents.

Oh my goodness, please tell me you're joking! I think someone's been listening to too much right-wing talk radio! There's no such thing as "Obamacare." "Obamacare" is a health care plan that doesn't go into effect until 2014(!), that requires uninsured Americans to purchase insurance from the private sector. It was written by the insurance industry, yet you think it's a "big government" program? It's a republican's wet dream, yet you republicans are "against" it because the president is a democrat. Democrats who support it would be against it if it were proposed by a republican. People these days don't think for themselves.

We probably will end up like Greece...because we let private sector bankers do whatever they please, without any effort to regulate their practices. That's why Greece fell and it's why America is falling, not because of a "stimulus" plan that was too small. Funny how you guys forget that the economy crashed due to the policies of Bush 43, who enacted every policy the republican right supported.

We're in a recession because of regressive, backwards conservative policies supported by both parties...and your solution is to elect someone who's more regressive, backwards and conservative. It seems that our failure to fund quality education is starting to hit home...

I live just a block or so out of McCarthy's district, but unfortunately, that only means that my Congressman is that other old lib, Gary Ackerman, thanks to redistricting over the years. He's also been in Congress way too long, and needs to be retired by the voters. Too bad that the district was jerrymandered to practically guarantee him lifetime tenure in Congress.
