Rick Crawford, 1st District Republican Candidate for US Congress, was asked to respond to to the above statement. Crawford responded:
"When I first saw this, I had to read it again to make sure I read it correctly. Once I did, I realized just how out of touch those who are outside the First District are with what people like you are expressing to me about Marion Berry's vote for healthcare a few weeks back.In a recent letter to constituents in the 1st District, Crawford expanded his position:
I also believe that an overwhelming majority of people in the First District disagree with the liberal policies of Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi. It's time for a new direction and a new day for the First district of Arkansas. For too long, Marion Berry has told us he is one of us, only to then fly home to his mansion in Washington to be a pawn for Nancy Pelosi and the liberal Democrats in Congress."
Marion Berry not only voted for Nancy Pelosi's $1.1 trillion government takeover of health-care, he voted for the $700 billion Wall Street bailout and Obama's $787 billion stimulus bill, which has failed to create jobs, and only added to our exploding federal deficit.
We need to grow the economy and create jobs, while eliminating wasteful spending and reducing the national debt to keep the American dream alive for hard-working Arkansans.
I am a small business owner who understands what it means to live the American dream. I am also a veteran of the United States Army and have fought for our country and our freedoms.
Arkansans resoundingly oppose the liberal agenda of Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Marion Berry, and I stand ready to be a check and balance on the Obama-Pelosi-Berry agenda.
