The Trouble With Harry – How Will He Vote?


Golly gee, Harry Teague is scared!

He is planning to vote against ObamaCare, allegedly, but for Cap/Trade.

“…Pearce campaign spokesman Paul Ciaramitaro stated, “The economically-catastrophic cap & trade program that Harry Teague eagerly supported in June is now one step closer to reality.  It is bad enough that Teague stayed loyal to his Democrat party leaders like Nancy Pelosi and helped pass a bill at the behest of radical environmentalists.  But it is completely unacceptable that Teague voted for a new program that will kill jobs in Southern New Mexico and raise taxes and utility rates on struggling families in Las Cruces and throughout his district.   Harry Teague voted entirely against the interest of his constituents.  Thanks to him and today’s action in the Senate, New Mexicans are now one step closer to higher taxes and fewer jobs.”…”

Yep, he’s scared.

He should be.  His behavior is deplorable and a perfect example of why we need an honorable Republican like Steve Pearce on the job instead of TwoStepping Teague.

He was for ObamaCare, now he is against it – or so he says.  Problem is, Harry Teague has a problem with integrity.  He tells you he is going to vote against one thing, then turns around and votes for it.  So, Harry Teague SAYS he is going to vote against ObamaCare.  Problem is, you cannot trust Harry Teague to keep his word – on much of anything.  Teague sends out a press release telling why he is NOT going to vote for the bill, then I find this little tidbit.

“…Still on the fence: Reps. Tom Perriello, D-Va., John Boccieri, D-Ohio, Ann Kirkpatrick, D-Ariz., Betsy Markey, D-Colo., and Harry Teague, D-N.M….”

If a vote is done quietly, Teague votes with Princess Pelosi.

Harry Teague is a marked man.  Not only is he considered one of the most vulnerable Democrats on the Hill, but evidently he has a few financial difficulties.

“…In the House, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) placed first, with an average wealth of $251 million – top among all members of Congress. Following Issa are Reps. Jane Harman (D-Calif.) and Jared Polis (D-Colo.). Twenty-three House members recorded average wealth in negative territory, with Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) and Harry Teague (D-N.M.) scraping the bottom.

This may – or may not – mean that these members are financially destitute. In addition to only requiring congressional members to report their assets in ranges, federal financial disclosures don’t require members of Congress to report certain assets such as personal residences, which may represent significant stores of wealth.

“Federal disclosure requirements don’t make it easy to determine the true extent of federal politicians’ personal holdings,” said Dan Auble, who manages CRP’s database of lawmakers’ personal financial information. “More transparency regarding congressional members’ personal assets helps lawmakers make decisions in the interests of their constituents and discourages them from attempting to benefit from legislative actions.”

CRP advocates electronic submission of personal financial disclosure reports to provide greater transparency and more meaningful access to this valuable public data….”

You might want to take note of this.  The Pink Flamingo will be discussing the differences between Harry Teague and Steve Pearce during the next year.  The differences are striking.  I’m beginning to have some questions about Teague’s integrity.  You will be reading more about that in the near future, also.

Last week The Pink Flamingo had the honor of meeting with GOP Congressional hopeful Steve Pearce.  What a nice and decent man!  I think one of my fondest prayers for this nation is to have a Congress and Senate full of men like he and Lindsey.
