PA GOP: Speaker Pelosi Gives Speech Highlighting Her Radical Agenda, Altmire, Critz and Dahlkemper Are No Shows! 
 
HARRISBURG – Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Pittsburgh today.
 
“Isn’t it interesting that Jason Altmire, Mark Critz and Kathy Dahlkemper are nowhere to be found when Nancy Pelosi is in town, despite the fact that they vote with her nearly 100% when they’re in D.C.?,” Gleason said. “When they’re in their Districts, Altmire, Critz and Dahlkemper try to portray themselves as fiscally responsible, but that does not match with their support of a nearly $1 trillion stimulus that has shipped jobs overseas.
 
“Altmire, Critz and Dahlkemper can try to hide all they want, but no amount of hiding is going to change the fact that they vote with Nancy Pelosi nearly 100% of the time. Just because they’re not standing next to Nancy Pelosi in Pennsylvania doesn’t mean that they don’t rush to her side every chance they get when they’re in Washington D.C.. The voters see through Altmire, Critz and Dahlkemper’s charade, and I’m confident they’ll all be held accountable for the company they keep in the halls of Congress this November.
 
According to The Washington Post Congressional database, Congressmen Jason Altmire,  Mark Critz and Kathy Dahlkemper vote with Nancy Pelosi nearly 100% of the time.
 
Altmire and Dahlkemper both voted for the stimulus bill, and Mark Critz supported the bill. Nearly 80% of stimulus funds reserved for green jobs went to firms overseas, Recently, it was also found that 72,000 stimulus checks were sent to dead people.
