Get to Know Adam Kinzinger by his Voting Record

Adam Kinzinger, a freshman Republican Tea-Party Congressman in the Illinois 16th District, had been swept in office on the wave of the Tea-Party craze. Taken under the wing of Eric Cantor (VA-7) and anointed a “Young Gun” of the Republican Party.  So, who is this man being groomed as a long-term playmaker for the GOP? Some analysts have calculated Kinzinger to have only a ninth-grade speaking level, but I’m more concerned with getting to know him by what he has done for his constituents from his voting record.

Who is David Hale? An Insight of Rockford Tea Party's Hypocritical Organizer...[UPDATED]

David Hale is the organizer of the Rockford Tea Party and a City of Rockford Precinct Committeeman (Ward 8 Precinct 4).  Hale is perhaps best nationally known for his stint on Fox News and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart after locating the fourteen Wisconsin Senators who fled the state to delay a vote on a controversial budget proposal.  What is not as well known is that Mr. Hale is a brute who often resorts to lies and manipulation to get his way.  The mother of his child even had to file an Order of Protection against Hale in 1999, which may make one wonder if Hale is also a violent person.   Being a curious person with critical thinking skills, I decided to uncover the mystery of David Hale.  I was surprised by how much irresponsibility and hypocrisy I found. Not to mention the socialist and fascist ideas Mr. Hale possessed.

Don Manzullo: Did You Forget Who You Represent?

I live in Rockford, IL.  It carries the title of ninth most dangerous city in the USA.  We have over 150,000 citizens and is one of the poorest cities in the state.  Our taxes are high, education low and getting worse, the city is crumbling, there are no jobs, corruption runs wild, and the crime rate soars.  

Rockford has an unemployment rate that hovers around 14%, a graduation rate of 79.9% (as of 2010), and 75% of our students live in low income homes. Our crime statistics break down like this: (as of 2009)
