I think we can all agree that Albert Einstein was a
One of his more famous sayings attributed to him was describing the definition of insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result.”
With just six weeks until Election Day here Suffolk County, that principle certainly applies to five-term Congressman Tim Bishop and this year’s race for Congress.
Bishop has been in Congress for both Republican Presidents and Democratic Presidents, as well as Republican-controlled Congresses and Democratic-controlled Congresses.
During Rep. Bishop’s nearly 10 years in Washington, the economic and fiscal health of the country has deteriorated, while the popularity ratings of Congress’ have plummeted along with it.
On Congressman Bishop’s watch, over 40,000 more Long Islanders have become unemployed according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics.
On Congressman Bishop’s watch, the national debt has grown from $6 trillion to $16 trillion, and continues to rise with no end in sight.
On Congressman Bishop’s watch, the federal government now spends over $1 trillion more than it takes in annually. It’s so bad that during the last three years,
Congress hasn’t even bothered to pass a budget.
And while middle-class families, seniors and small businesses on Long Island have all struggled mightily, Congressman Bishop has collected a lucrative, taxpayer-funded congressional salary and lined his own pockets at our expense.
Embarrassingly, a leading independent watchdog group recently named Congressman Bishop – our Congressman – as 1 of the 12 most corrupt politicians in Washington, while Newsday has called for him to be investigated for an explosive pay-to-play scandal.
Does anyone think that things will change if Congressman Bishop is re-elected this November?
Does anyone think that career politicians like Congressman Bishop can clean up the mess in Washington that they helped to create?
I don’t think so.
We need a new direction for Suffolk County, and we need real change in Washington.
If you want to change Congress, you need to start by changing your Congressman.
With your support, I will take my experience as a self-made businessman to Congress and work with people in both parties to reduce the tax burden on Long Islanders, create good-paying jobs and get our economy growing again.
I urge you to read my specific, 10-point jobs plan at www.Randy2012.com/jobsplan and I respectfully ask for your support on November 6th.
