He is a NEOCON Tea bagger that faithfully attends tea bagin party meetings. He cannot be changed to a moderate Republican which is what we need, reasonable people willing to work for the benefit of the nation not the NEOCons of the tea baggin party the GOP be damned. I cannot and will not vote for him.

Mr. Ed. Is entitled to his opinion but it is always one sided and partisan. He is guilty of the herd mentality he accuses others of having. Raising the minimum wage, Obamacare, leading from behind, and the government owes you everything mentality is destroying our nation. We need to support the few brave representatives who know better.

Someone who can't win for Chautauqua Co legislature shouldn't be attacking our fine US Representative Tom Reed. "The many people who try to live on minimum wage" is such a tired old deception used by liberals. Under 3% of the workforce earns minimum wage, and most aren't adults with families, they are high school and college students. 28 states raised their minimum wage between 2003-2007, and studies by economists from Cornell and American Univ showed no associated reduction in poverty. Many studies have shown that raising the minimum wage actually decreases employment, including among minorities and young people. We still have a weak and barely recovering economy, it would be foolish to hike the minimum by more than $1 right now like many Dems want. Tom Reed is a very intelligent and thoughtful man, and to imply he is like an animal that simply follows the herd is both inaccurate and insulting.
