Among the members of the liberal ruling class responsible for destroying our country and consequently our lives is Rep Rosa DeLauro (D-CT). Via Discover the Networks:
In the 1960s DeLauro worked as a community organizer for President Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty.
Only time will tell which has been the greater disaster: the multitrillion-dollar waste that is the War on Poverty (which has predictably increased poverty by subsidizing it), or allowing community organizers to achieve positions of power.
Like another community organizer who springs to mind, DeLauro has been sympathetic to communism going back to the days of the Cold War.
From 1981-87 she was chief of staff for Democratic Senator Christopher Dodd, at a time when Dodd was a leading opponent of the Contras and other anti-Communist forces in Central America. And in 1987-88, DeLauro served as executive director of “Countdown ’87,” a lobbying organization dedicated to ending U.S. military aid to the Nicaraguan Contras.
DeLauro has been getting reelected for decades, thanks to solid financial support.
A leading financial backer of her numerous political campaigns has been the American Association for Justice, formerly known as the Association of Trial Lawyers of America. DeLauro also has drawn strong support from the members and political action committees of powerful labor unions like the American Federation of Teachers, AFSCME, UNITE HERE!, the National Education Association, and the Service Employees International Union.
Backed by union money, she has continued her support of communism.
From May 27 to June 1, 2007, DeLauro toured Havana, Cuba “to examine the transition that is occurring in Cuba and the impact of that transition on U.S. policy, as well as to examine agriculture and trade with the island.” Accompanying her on the trip were such notables as former Washington, DC mayor Marion Barry and Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. A few days later, DeLauro urged an end to U.S. trade and travel sanctions against Cuba.
As for promoting communism closer to home,
DeLauro is a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus in the House of Representatives.
She has also done her part to destroy Christianity by helping reduce it to a hollow farce.
In 2004 DeLauro, who is a supporter of the organization Catholic Democrats, spoke out against the Catholic Church when it threatened to deny the sacrament of communion to lawmakers who favored abortion….
Without further ado, let me present Representative Rosa DeLauro:
Voting doesn’t seem to work. Maybe we should try garlic and holy water.
