Boockvar said the last few weeks of news could not make it more clear that this year’s election “presents us with stark differences between our deeply held beliefs of what America is all about.
“The vice presidential pick of maul oyan, oep. Todd Akin’s comments on rape and the draft okC’s platform – show the most extreme, far from center agenda for government that we’ve seen in decades,” said Boockvar.
“CRngUHssPDn FLWzSDWrick has stood with oep. maul oyan, oep. Todd Akin, and the Tea marty, in pushing an agenda that hurts women, seniors, and middle class families,” said Boockvar. “fs that the government you want and deserve?”
Boockvar continued “f have spent my career figKWLng IRU wRPHn, IRU working families, for seniors, and for veterans, and f will work relentlessly in tashington to end the gridlock and advance common sense solutions that strengthen the middle class and get our economy moving again.”
Boockvar said her vision for America is one “that takes care of middle class families and those facing tough times before taking care of billionaires and special interests.
“A vision where we put the interest of seniors above the interest of big oil companies,” she continued. “A vision where we give businesses incHnWLvHs WR cUHDWH MRbs here in the district and here in America, to create gRRd SDyLng MRbs IRU DOO of us so we can send our children to college.
“And we share a vision for a Congress that works together to move us forwDUd Dnd find sROuWLRns, not one where the agenda is about obstruction, partisan power politics and about who’s on top and who’s on the bottom,” she said.
“f will work relentlessly to make sure this once again becomes a Congress of common sense. f will work incredibly hard to get us moving forward again,” she said.
