Letter: Chris Perkins for Congress, VA 11 District

To the Editor:

In response to Gerry Connolly for his comment that veterans and career-first officers, including Colonel Perkins, do not have the "sweat equity" needed to hold federal office: Gerry Connolly, a lawyer who doesn't legislate because Nancy says, read Obamacare after it is passed. Connolly also says "Yes" when Nancy and Harry want more tax revenues from the 53 percent who pay taxes, and "Yes" to Harry and Obama when the far left want devastating cuts to our national defense capabilities and increasing unemployment in private and public sectors. Gerry Connolly's "sweat equity," is take money from tax payers and give it away to keep the very large size chairs he needs.

Gerry Connolly is hell-bent on cutting the military and economic capabilities needed to protect Americans at home and abroad and increasing unemployment in the private sector. The provisions of this budget sequestration legislation include:

*Over 100,000 soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen, many of whom are just returning from multiple combat tours laid-off

*Ground forces reduced to pre-1940 levels

*Naval forces reduced to pre-1915 levels

*Tactical air fighter forces reduced to the lowest level in the history of the U.S. Air Force

Congressional representatives should fight to stop the coming demoralizing blow to local and nation-wide economic goods and services production and distribution systems and our national security! BUT, as in the past, Jerry Connolly follows his Democrat leaders who support devastating cuts to our national defense capabilities and increasing unemployment in private and public sectors.

The Virginia 11th District needs responsiveness and leadership on economic, security, education and entitlement budget, program planning and cost effective implementation. Fellow Virginians, vote for Chris Perkins for responsiveness, government stewardship, and a better and brighter future for you and your family.
