Two vie for post in the 9th District

This Bud's NOT for you - or me!
As a Christian who believes we are here to serve others and a former NASA scientist, I am voting for Karen Ramsburg for Congress. Mitch McConnell, Karl Rove, and others decided on day one of President Obama's presidency to do everything possible to make him a one term president. Bud Shuster has voted with that party leadership 93 percent of the time. This included votes against the Veteran's Jobs Bill and all of the Democratic sponsored bills that would have stimulated job growth! He an most of his party are controlled by the rich and have sacrificed the growth of our economy for political ends.
Shockingly, their elimination of support for womens' cancer screenings will actually cost more US women their lives than al qaeda! He is a tool of the natural gas industry (I have heard him speak live on their behalf) and supportive of privatizing our Medicare. So to my many conservative friends, I say, It's OK to vote Democratic. Jesus will love you for it and you don't have to tell your family that you are more enlightened and progressive than they are. Congress has failed us - and it's time to fire most of them before it's too late.
Karen Ramsburg is brilliant, understands the healthcare system, and has already been identified as an up-and-coming woman to watch. She was going to run as an independent, but had to get Democratic support to be on the ballot. We could not ask for a better replacement for someone who has been in office far too long and delivered far too little (not one piece of passed legislation bears his name as sponsor.)
