Letter: Maloney Best Choice for Women in 2012

Bea Rhodes writes in support of Sean Patrick Maloney for New York's 18th district.

To the Editor:

Sean Patrick Maloney, the Democratic challenger for Congress, is the best choice for women voters this election year.  He will represent the interests of women in the Hudson Valley.

Even though Nan is a doctor, a woman, her voting record doesn’t indicate she take’s women’s health seriously.  Sean is a strong supporter of a woman's right to choose and unlike Congresswoman Hayworth, Sean supports funding for access to contraception. Locally, 12 health centers provide care to over 35,000 patients each year. Eliminating funding to Planned Parenthood means over 31,000 patients will lose access to care such as cervical cancer screenings, affordable birth control and HIV testing.

In addition, Sean supports the Affordable Care Act, which prohibits insurance companies from charging women higher premiums.  Congresswoman Nan Hayworth, who has taken thousands of dollars from insurers, supports repealing the Affordable Care Act.

Sean Patrick Maloney supports equality in the work place and supports the Paycheck Fairness Act, which would bar companies from retaliating against workers who inquire about pay disparities and allow employees to sue for punitive damages in cases of paycheck discrimination.

 Fortunately, the women of the Hudson Valley do have a real champion on the ballot this November: Sean Patrick Maloney.  Sean is a strong supporter of a woman's right to choose.  On November 6th vote for Sean Maloney.

Alison, Please you want to talk about main street values, how about hurling acid in the faces of female senators? Nan Hayworth spokesperson said that and quite Nan had nothing to say about it. That's a high value system huh?

Allen do you have a direct feed from the DNC and Debbie Wasserman Schultz? This parroting of the party line gets pretty monotonous or are you reading from a teleprompter also?

Oy Ross: En fait, tous nos points de discussion sont en français, puis nous les traduire, de les lire à partir d'un telepromter et publier des sites. Au Revoir.

Why are the democrat comments in this district the same as in other districts, mostly lies. There is no subsidy or tax break for companies moving jobs overseas. Romney challenged Obama in the debate on this lie. Oil companies are the largest taxpayers in the country. They pay more than taxes than they make in profits. Also as Romney pointed out Obama lost more money on green projects which paid no taxes, than 10 years of any deductions given oil companies. The real question is what benefit did we get from the 6 trillion dollars in deficits Obama has run up. That deficit is what we are leaving our children and grandchildren, ensuring they will be worse off than we are. We cannot pay for the current entitlements. Yet every attempt to stop their growth leads to these attacks. Of every dollar spent over 50% is now borrowed. this is economic insanity.

I am watching the debate on television now. I don't like how either of them are doing.
