My son Roger Lott on his local congressman, Joe Sestak

The Delaware County Times published this letter by Roger:

U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak, the Democrat who represents Pennsylvania’s 7th Congressional District and most of Delaware County, has one of the most politically liberal voting records in Congress. It’s time to ask if Sestak actually represents this district that so recently had a Republican congressman.

On the right, the American Conservative Union says Sestak voted conservatively zero percent of the time.

According to the Americans for Democratic Action on the left, Sestak voted liberally 95 percent of the time. The American Civil Liberties Union, also on the left, has given Joe Sestak an overall grade of 100.

Sestak votes down the line with unions. The American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees, people who work for the government, said Sestak supported them 100 percent of the time in 2007. The AFL-CIO gave him just a slightly lower rating, saying he voted with it 96 percent of the time in 2007. A conservative business orientated group such as the Club for Growth gave him a rating of just 2 percent.

The League of Conservation Voters said he voted every single time for more environmental restrictions in 2008.

With the national debt now exceeding $10 trillion, people on both sides of the aisle may be troubled to learn that Sestak was given an “F” by the National Taxpayer’s Union because he voted virtually every time for more spending.

Sestak is not helping future Americans by leaving behind a massive debt. He’s been concerned with fulfilling his personal agenda and satisfying current voters without considering the future consequences of his actions. When it has come to raising our taxes and digging the American people into an ever-deeper hole, Joe Sestak deserves blame. . . .
