Leach Asks Congress to “Do Something” (With Video)
State Senator Daylin Leach (D-Montgomery) released a snappy new campaign video in his quest for the Democratic nomination for Congress in PA-13.
The video shows Leach in Washington, D.C. where he chronicles the failures of Congress and its inability to pass substantive legislation.
“Our congress has never been less productive, and when they actually do something, it makes things worse like the recent government shut-down, or taking us over the fiscal cliff, or creating the debt-ceiling crisis, but even worse, Congress hasn’t passed any meaningful legislation in a very long time,” says Leach.
“We have real problems that Congress can fix, we need them to end the sequester and create jobs, pass background checks to reduce gun violence, end the discrimination LGBT folks face, and so much more.”
Rife with jokes about Rep. Paul Ryan, a lion and some self-deprecating humor, the video asks constituents of the 13th district and the country to sign a petition at DoSomethingCongress.com which asks congress to do just about anything, including create jobs, pass mandatory background checks for gun permits and end sexual orientation discrimination.
Leach faces State Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-Phila), physician Valerie Arkoosh and former Congresswoman Marjorie Margolies in the primary for Allyson Schwartz’s seat.
