Silence of ‘Silent Joe’ not acceptable
The current TV advertisements that proclaim U.S. Rep. Joe Donnelly’s record of fiscal responsibility does not jibe with his voting record.
At the town hall meeting held at the Inventrek building, Donnelly promised to read the Affordable Health Care bill prior to voting. However, he did not. Instead he followed Speaker Pelosi’s example of “first pass the bill and later find out what’s in it.”
Despite declaring concern for our national debt, Donnelly consistently supported deficit spending. In response to my communications to his office, I receive cordial letters containing standard talking points.
In Howard County, Donnelly is known as “Silent Joe.” It appears that he only wishes to answer “softball” questions, rather than addressing hard facts about his voting record. He is not a leader, and if elected as a senator from Indiana, I predict he will faithfully follow Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s instructions.
Remember, Sen. Reid’s Senate has not passed a budget in the past three years.
Donnelly promised to be a regular guest on Peter Heck’s WIOU radio program, but has failed to respond to more than 650 invitations. Joe, your silence is unacceptable.
