Still deciding over Grimm and McMahon?

Grimm vs McMahon. The Choice is clear!

As we rapidly approach the midterm elections, what should be clear by now is the stark differences between Republican Michael Grimm and the Democrat Michael McMahon, both vying for the seat covering NY’s 13th district.

On all fronts, including character, Grimm has consistently risen above the classless tactics and failed policy decisions of the incumbent, Michael McMahon.

Dirty Tricks

Mike McMahon is all tricks and no treat

On the Issues

  • WhenMcMahon was a New York City council member he voted to raise property taxes 18.5%, the largest in the city’s history
  • He supported a congestion pricing scheme that would have levied an additional toll on all vehicles traveling to Manhattan below 96th St.
  • McMahon voted with Nancy Pelosi to stop a middle class tax cut.

Any wonder why McMahon is dubbed Tax Hike Mike ?

McMahon voted against Obamacare but gave a wink and nod to Pelosi’s shenanigans over the “Deem and Pass” maneuver intended to ram the bill down the throats of the American people.

Grimm is calling to repeal Obamacare while McMahon is not.

Still undecided if you should vote for Grimm or McMahon?

The choice is clear if you are concerned about the economy, healthcare, jobs and installing a trustworthy representative in Congress.

Cuomo’s social engineering as HUD chief contributed to subprime crisis

Cuomo’s social engineering as HUD chief contributed to subprime crisis

Have those New Yorkers, residents of one of the highest taxed states in the union, voting for Andrew Cuomo to be their next governor allowed their ideology to trump sound reasoning?

Andrew Cuomo took the reins and not only furthered Cisneros and Clinton’s policies but greatly expanded them.

Henry Cisneros moved the GSEs toward a requirement that 42 percent of their mortgages serve low and moderate income families. Andrew Cuomo raised that number to 50 percent and dramatically hiked GSE mandates to buy mortgages for the "very-low-income."

These bad loans were purchased and sold throughout the secondary market and the pyramid grew and the bottom collapsed resulting in the subprime crisis we are still reeling from today.
