Weeding Out “Minnick Myths”
Congressman Minnick, Idaho’s Liberal posing as a conservative, has sealed his defeat in the Congressional race against Raul Labrador, as the first elected Democrat to the United States House of Representatives from Idaho in decades, Minnick with his “aye” on H.R. 4173, his liberal-socialistic actions should be exposed. This will prove to Idaho First Congressional District voters as proof positive, that Minnick is not fiscally conservative.
Congressman Minnick was elected to the House of Representatives under the “Minnick Myth” as a fiscal Conservative, while Minnick has a liberal belief system on all other issues. During his first term in the House of Representatives, Minnick has voted as a fiscal Conservative on some economic related legislation, however, Minnick supported legislation that can be described alone as socialistic and destructive to our free enterprise system.
According to the group Open Congress, The Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009 introduced by Barney Frank will “overhaul regulations in the financial sector. It would establish a new Consumer Financial Protection Agency to regulate products like home mortgages, car loans and credit cards, give the Treasury Department new authority to place non-bank financial firms, like insurance companies into receivership and regulate the over-the-counter derivatives market.”, in other words – more government control with the liberals reeling in total control of the market place.
