It just goes to show you that money can buy anything, including a seat in the Senate.

Money didn't help Linda the last time out and it likely won't help this time either, once people realize she's just rebranding the same old tired political rhetoric espoused by the Right. Tax breaks for the "entrepreneurs"? Hasn't the last 30+ years proved that "trickle down" doesn't work and just makes the fat cats fatter, while the rest of us have to subsidize the corporations making record profits?
William Brighenti, CPA August 11, 2012 at 12:59 AM
Brian, they just repackaged the trickle-down propaganda: instead of that old line, if we give tax breaks to the rich, the tax savings will trickle down to us; to a new line for 2012 -- if we give even more tax breaks to the rich, they will benevolently and out of the goodness of their heart no longer ship jobs overseas where they pay pennies an hour but bring all those jobs back to America so they can pay us $10 an hour. LOL! If the American people are too stupid to swallow that line, then they deserve to lose their jobs, homes, medical insurance, and everything else.

Republicans create jobs with the money they earn, democrats live off the goverment. 50% of the democrats are on handouts.

You too can buy a Senate seat for $55 million

If low taxes create jobs, where are the jobs?

At least she's spending her own instead of begging others! That should be to her credit. I had to wait in traffic the other week because Obama closed down the highway so he could beg for campaign funds. Yeah thanks, I'll vote for the guy who isn't screwing up my day.

Campaign polling shows that Linda is ahead of Chris Shays in the polling due to all her campaign advertising. However, polling also shows that Linda cannot win in the general election against the presumptive Democrat/socialist nominee Chris Murphy. The same polling shows that Chris Shays COULD win in the general election against Mr. Murphy. So if you're voting tomorrow remember a vote for Linda is a vote for Murphy!
