Harris Feels Safe, Continuing To Lie!

Congressman Andy Harris continues to lie and misrepresent the facts. He says that a majority of Americans don’t want to see the debt-limit raised? A straight-out lie! The highest figures I’ve seen by researching the entire internet on this issue, was 44% opposed…hardly a majority. It was a poll conducted by a Republican (McInturff) AND a Democrat (Hart), so it was not bipartisan.

It’s about time that Harris be called out as the easy liar he is…as was editorialized recently by the Cecil Daily Times. Add his lies to the fact that he has opposed any legislation that would help the Eastern Shore, in any way, and we have every reason in the world to look elsewhere for a candidate who will truly represent our District. My vote is with Dr. John LaFerla, a man of integrity and strong desires to see the Eastern Shore move forward, with jobs, infrastructure and balance for our farmers and the environment.

Dr. LaFerla was one of the first on the site of Sandy devastation, calling upon Congress to help fund relief efforts. Where was Harris? Devising his excuses for voting against the Sandy Relief package. John LaFerla offers ways to fix our problems; Harris just adds to the problems and refuses to accept responsibility for his actions. This is why former Congressman, Wayne Gilchrest, has endorsed Dr. LaFerla…and why we all should!

Sad Day for the Eastern Shore!

It is a sad day for the Eastern Shore, to have a liar and a sham, like Andy Harris, be re-elected.  I was so hoping that this, my first post after the election, could call for a coming together of the “right” and “left.”  But, upon hearing Harris’ comments after his win, I am more committed than ever to replace him as our Representative.

Andy “Bizarro” Harris

He lives in a ‘bizarro’ world, claiming to have “reached out” to Democrats, when we know that he has voted against any proposals put forth by House Democrats or the White House.  His approach has even earned him the nickname, “Dr No”, because that has become his standard vote and position! And, according to his post-election comments, he will continue to live by his moniker and obstruct any progress in the House.

I am not whining about Harris’ win; the former Democratic candidate, Wendy Rosen, certainly didn’t help, by resigning a week after the deadline to remove her name from the ballot.  As such, Dr. John LaFerla could only run as the Democratic write-in candidate. I am just astonished by the failure of the commonsense Eastern Shore voter to see through the disguise and insincerity of Harris’ campaign. He is definitely a “RINO” (Representative In Name Only)!

When Harris holds himself out as a “great communicator”, saying that he is bringing both parties to the table, it just doesn’t fit with his history and performance, whether in the State Senate or in Congress.  In fact, Harris has been a major roadblock to both, the Maryland delegation and the House, where there have been multiple efforts by the Democratic leadership and the White House, to repair the economic mess perpetrated by the previous administration.

Harris lies when he talks about helping farmers, since he has voted against the Farm Bill, introduced by his own Party! Without its passage, our farmers will be hurt financially. He has voted against education, medicare, social security, job creation, health care and protecting our air and water, or the Chesapeake Bay.  In fact, only 4 bills were introduced (and passed) by Harris in his 2 years as Congressman. They dealt with reducing the tariffs on foreign-made men’s and women’s shoes! While millions of Americans were still unemployed and suffering, Andy embraced a foot fetish!

“Dr. No” – Doing nothing for the Eastern Shore!

Aside from the sound bites and clichés he has come to rely on, Harris cannot point to any real action on his part, to help our district or its residents.  He has failed to spur job creation, being more interested in expanding ‘fracking’ even though it has been shown to be destructive and dangerous, than he is in cooperating on solving our “Fiscal Cliff.”

He is a pawn of his corporate campaign contributors, mostly from out-of-state, and the sooner 1st district voters open their eyes, the sooner we will get a Representative who truly represents our interests. Until then, “Dr. No” will continue to be the obstructionist and do-nothing elected official, that he has been since his days in the Maryland Senate!
