It is about time that someone like Jerry Costello take a hike. I believe he has or is part of owning his own lobbyist group. That his son works for? Didn't he get away with the big gambling scandal a few years back. Also was a hold out to vote yes on the Obama Health Care Plan. He is only gettting richer while pretending to be doing Southern Illinois good. Check how he voted in the last couple of years on spending money and sending jobs overseas.

Jerry Costello is one of this region's longtime heroes...always working for the people of his district's well being. He's trying to save our social security! Newman wants to privitize it! Ya' like that idea? Think about it.

Costello held out until the last minute on Health Care Reform. He purposely mislead us into thinking he was a no vote and then flipped in the last 12 hours just so he wouldn't have to deal with the negative feedback in the runup to the vote. For that you must go Mr. Costello

Amen the Saint. Also, how did his wife get the gig at SWIC? Was she the most qualified candidate?

I was going through the votes Costello made in his 22 yrs in the House. He voted against Earmark Reform,HR1003; He also voted against more control on Lobbyist and Special interest groups. He has voted with his party 95.2% of the time, the other 4.8% was not voting at all. What do you think of them apples?

Newman is new blood, business woman, and too non-political to owe votes to anyone...if it doesn't work out, we can vote her out in the next election....

I voted for Costello a number of times but he now has to go. I havae been reading up on his voting behavior. He has benefited well by being in Congress all this time. His wife is the head of SWIC and his son has a big job that they probably would not have otherwise.

i am really encouraged by all the people speaking against Costello. He is a gangster at best who has robbed the system blind. Sure he has tossed the district a few bones through the years but he is 98.9% in with Reed and Pelosi and their interests

Who are these people talking about. Ste. Genevieve's congressman is Russ Carnahan and his main opponent is Ed Martin. What planet are these people on?

Something you might want to conside. Part of the Privatize paln allows your account (Money) to be passed on to your beneficiaries should you die. Now you can pay all the way up yo 62, dies and the Govt. keeps your money that you paid in. The other plan allows the money to be passed on tou you wife, kids whomever you choose. Plus, congress can't take it and spend it leaving you an IOU instead of cash. You act like the S.S. money is actually there.
