At a time when millions of Americans have lost their homes, and millions more are upside down, and may yet lose their homes, and with several thousand of these people in Texas’s 36th Congressional District, Why is it that Ben Streusand feels that he deserves a seat in Congress after profiting from the mortgage collapse? Seems to me like he ought to be doing another kind of serving time.
Pinochio Pretends to be Reagan
When Ben Streusand’s Clinton-like “research team” left Brian Babin’s hometown after spending two weeks looking for anything they could find to demonize their opponent, voters will be pleased to know they found NOTHING. Notice I said pleased. Not surprised. Babin has been one of the most popular conservative candidate’s ever to put his name on a ballot in
Voters know him and like him and trust him.
The facts did not deter Streusand’s decision to sling mud and try to overcome the fact he did not actually live in this district, Taxes were raised thirty years ago and Babin was on the board that voted unanimously to raise them. Streusand knew the rest of the story because his team knew it. But he left out that everyone in Woodville’s position raised taxes to adjust to the mandates in the Robin Hood plan the Supreme Court of Texas had upheld.
Streusand blindsides Babin with this and filmed his response to a vote that was cast three decades ago. He thinks this makes Babin look bad. Well I hope voters don’t send this kind of person to
thinking this kind of tactics will work up there. Streusand will be ripped to
shreads if he tries this amateur debate stuff in Congress. Just like in this
case, someone will look back and see what actually happened. Channel 12 did.
Babin was a tax cutter and acted and voted like all conservatives did in Washington D.C. with the circumstances
of that time. Texas
Streusand says he would have done differently. But had he decided to vote as he said and had he influenced enough others to do the same …… there is no question it would have cost Woodville taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars. The highest court in the land had already ruled on Robin Hood.
It is highly unlikely Streusand would have voted as he says he would have however. Records reveal a younger Streusand had other similarities with
(besides his opposition research/hit team). Besides working as a staffer for
Democrats, court records from a filing for a divorce indicate he may have had
Monica-like problems. Clinton
So in the midst of his Democrat brethren and a swinging life style, Ben Streusand would have taken on this expensive issue? No. He would not have been elected and he never has been elected to represent conservatives anywhere at anytime. Ben Streusand was fortunate to patch up a marriage he all but destroyed and he was out seeking his fortune. A fortune he would accumulate through taking advantage of Dodd-Frank and what has become known as the home loan debacle. He has no record in office and the record he does have is one that most people would not put out there in front of their neighbors.
The last district Streusand tried to purchase his congressional seat in rejected him 2 to 1 on election day. If people that know his history don’t vote this time, we will have someone in Washington who will be working for himself – not us. Please vote May 27th.
