I'm disappointed that my representative continues to use false and misleading statements to attack a law after she had seven years in Congress to offer a plan that she considers acceptable.The 800,000 figure she uses is blatantly false. It's primarily because workers wouldn't have to work because the new law expands health care coverage. That means people working most for health insurance would either reduce their hours or leave the job market altogether through their own choice.
I'm disappointed that she has sponsored only 11 bills during her seven years in Congress, nine of which occurred in May of this year after she lost her primary. I'm also disappointed that she has yet to show any effort to pay back the $500,000 to the Turkish Coalition of America, something she was ordered to do by the house ethics committee.
Sorry Mrs. Schmidt, you're an embarrassment to your district. Enjoy the last few months of your stint in DC, and those autographed Obama SOTU speeches that you waited in line to get.
