Letter: 'Send a Message, Vote For Larsen'

Resident says political newcomer can help taxpayers.

Editor,

The majority of jobs created in America today come from small business entrepreneurs, but these small businesses remain suffocated by the burdens of taxes, regulations to comply with cap and trade, and a lack of commercial lending. Cap and trade will cause electricity rates to necessarily skyrocket.

Under the Obama Administration there has been a concerted effort to attack American industry. Every major corporation, from Boeing to Intel to Gibson Guitar to oil companies and the health care sector as a whole have been harassed by Obama Czars, the Justice Department, and other federal agencies.

The biggest suppressant of job creation in America today is the specter of Obama-care and its multitude of new mandates and burdens placed on employers large and small. Barack Obama has been successful garnering support for these job-killing policies from a few Republican Congressmen such as Leonard Lance, who supported a devastating tax hike and a mountain of regulation to New Jersey businesses when he voted for cap and trade. Lance also voted with Obama to raise the debt ceiling to the tune of 2.1 trillion dollars to fund Obama-care in August 2011.

With small businesses not looking to hire new workers and potential health-care cost skyrocketing, 2012 looms as America's most defining election in modern history. Not only do we have the opportunity to elect a new president. It's imperative that we elect a Congressman who will vote to reverse Obama-care and spur job growth. Conservative Republican David Larsen, challenging incumbent Congressman Leonard Lance in the newly formed 7th district will not vote with Barack Obama.

David Larsen, business owner and entrepreneur, wants to clear the way for all Americans to realize their dream of business entrepreneurship. If you're concerned about the economy and the burdens placed on your business by the Obama administration, send a message to Washington, support David Larsen for congress.

This is just too lucid to have been written by Lotito. I wonder if Larsen knows he's being endorsed by a birther?

. Paine, you missed the point of the letter, but that's good for Republicans. I bet you are to much of a coward to post something like that in your own name? Why are you always stalking Lotito with snide comments?

Tom Lotito is sadly distorting the truth. Leonard Lance voted 26 times to either fully repeal, defund, or dismantle ObamaCare. Leonard Lance serves on the Energy & Commerce Committee and twice voted to kill the EPA's cap-and-trade plan. That's a fact. And Leonard Lance voted for "Cut, Cap and Balance" that included substantial spending cuts, statutory spending caps and a constitutional amendment that would require the federal government to balance its books each year. Leonard Lance is a tireless fiscal watchdog who has been endorsed by state senators Mike Doherty, Tony Bucco, Steve Oroho as well as state reps. Michael Patrick Carroll, Tony Bucco, Alison McHose and Gary Chiusano and scores of other leading conservative voices in New Jersey.

This is a thinly veiled attack on Leonard Lance that actually says very little about David Larsen or why he would be a better representative than Lance. Mr. Lotito exhorts us to “send a message” to Washington and Obama, yet neither of these are running for the 7th District. I would rather vote *for* someone who will have my best interests at heart than callously throw my vote away to send some inane “message”. In truth, both candidates have similar positions on quite a few key issues that matter to Republicans, which may explain why Larsen (and by extension, Lotito) have resorted to negative portrayals of Lance rather than simply sticking to the issues. Perhaps this is an effort to gin up anti-incumbent fervor among uninformed voters. I attended the town hall with Lance today. He did not mention his opponent at all and had not a single negative thing to say about anyone. He was very consistent in explaining only his own positions and left it to others to speak for themselves. In this way, he reminds me a lot of Rodney Frelinghuysen, another class act.
