Why she got reelected is beyond me. Why the people of Connecticut's Third Congressional District vote for her is amazing. She in my economic opinion does not in any way represent this district. Representative DeLauro voted against the extension of the Bush tax cuts, she actually voted against her President. Her President who is economically challenged when dealing with economic issues. She apparently voted against the bill because of supposed tax cuts for the 2% of the most wealthy and that it does not create enough jobs. As an economist I fail to see how the top 2% are getting such a massive cut in this bill, if anything those who leave $5 million dollars in inheritances will see the federal government steal 35% of it now. That money has been taxed numerous times already. Why is that justified? How did DeLauro's vote for socialized health care and the Obama stimulus package actually create jobs for our economy either? They were both job killers.
Once again she has voted against her district. Why is she our Representative?
