Fitzpatrick has voted for jobs, to stop the public funding of political campaigns, to not use tax payers money to fund crony businesses like Solyndra, and against ObamaCare. Speaking of lies - Obama said Obamacare wouldn't be a tax, it is. And it will be costing taxpayers 6 Million dollars (according to the CBO). Obama cut 716 BILLION dollars from medicare to help fund Obamacare. Which is NOT free healthcare - every citizen is required to pay for it. Long waiting lists for surgeries, and doctors appointments? A board of 15 "non medical" members that oversees your healthcare? Employees not able to hire due to Obamacare mandates? Obamacare is not only harmful to our physical health, it's also a fatal economic disease. A vote for Boockvar is a vote for disease. A vote for Fitzpatrick is a vote for the cure.

It's Bookvar that's the lier, she claims to be independent yet when you check her sponsor page there are a few individuals and the rest are unions. Wonder where her votes will lean with? Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that she will be a union hack.

Mike Fitzpatrick has been a stellar congressman, Fiscally conservative I really appreciate, his attempt to help business in our region excellent, his communication with his constitutions superb. Unless you don't care about the region and just want to replace him with a "D" why consider Bookvar? She must be beholden to the unions as that is who has predominately endorsed her. Rather then a unionist I would rather vote for someone who has accomplished something

Fitzpatrick's campaign ads talk about his 100 meetings with Businesses in 100 days to help create jobs for Bucks County. No jobs have been created but the meetings were probably campaign fundraisers. He was secretly recorded at a Tea Party Fundraiser expressing his real views on the Middle Class. Let's stop signing the front of Fitzpatrick's paycheck and put a woman in the House! Kathy Bookvar will vote for the people who sign the front of a paycheck, the back of a paycheck and for those 24,000 people in Bucks County, who don't sign a paycheck. Fitzpatrick and his Republican controlled Congress haven't done anything for the Middle class in 2 years. Let's protect Medicare, the Affordable Care Act and stop the assault on Women!!!
