Murphy, Himes and other incompetent 'career politicians' (Himes is a wannabe) may have 'Broken' the greatest nation in the history of the world, economically, if Americans don't replace Obama and a lot of other career BIG government STATISTS at the polls this November! The question now is whether enough CT voters have awakened to these sad facts, and will send NO more DEMS to congress, and replace all these "career politicians" with the principled "Limited Government" candidates, such as Wayne Winsley running against DeLauro, and Steve Obsitnik against Himes. http://www.obsitnik.com/ Please check out Winsley's FB, or his website (http://winsleyforcongress.com), and see these impressive videos: **Wayne Winsley Rocks Republican Convention** Hartford, CT May 18, 2012. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWPBo-TE0-4&feature=em-share_video_user Himes is clueless as to the damage he has done in less than 4 years! Here is a one-minute example of his treatment of those who believe in NOT spending $$$ you don't have, and not running up the 5 TRILLIONS more in DEBT Himes voted for: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AQ3pWzMwWs
