FYI - For all of my fellow NC district 7 voters, THIS MAN REALLY DOES WORK FOR YOU! SEND HIM BACK TO WASHINGTON! He's not a "status quo" Democrat. He doesn't care about Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. He cares about US!
FROM CONGRESSMAN MIKE MCINTYRE'S CAMPAIGN:
Veterans of Foreign Wars PAC Endorses Congressman McIntyre
Posted on: September 21st, 2010
The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Political Action Committee Board of Directors has endorsed Congressman Mike McIntyre for re-election.
The VFW-PAC endorsed Congressman McIntyre because of specific legislation that he strongly supported regarding veterans rights and benefits, as well as his unyielding stance on national security issues.
As a senior member of the House Committee on Armed Services, Congressman McIntyre is a leading champion for our military veterans and retirees. He has fought for strengthened health benefits for our veterans and retirees, and the right of veterans to receive retirement pay along with disability pay. Additionally, Congressman McIntyre successfully fought for additional veterans clinics throughout the district.
Additionally, Congressman McIntyre authored the Veterans Outreach Improvement Act, which passed unanimously in the U.S. House during the 110th and 111th Sessions of Congress. The bill would allow the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to partner with state and local governments, through grant opportunities, and to reach out to veterans and their families in ensuring they receive the benefits for which they are eligible and assist them in completing their benefits claims.
Congressman McIntyre was named “National Legislator of the Year” for veterans in 2008 by the National Association of County Veterans’ Service Officers.
McIntyre Responds to Pantano’s Fabricated ‘Death Tax’ Ad
Posted on: September 17th, 2010
Congressman Mike McIntyre responded to Pantano’s fabricated ‘Death Tax’ ad by stating:
“We need to do all we can to protect small businesses and family farms, and I am 100% committed to ending the “death” tax! Since my election to Congress, I have consistently supported this repeal. What my opponent does not tell you is that I voted for a motion to eliminate the estate tax during consideration of the estate tax relief bill in 2009. Unfortunately, this motion was defeated. I voted to extend the exemption for the 2009 estate tax for the time being because at that time, the estate tax was to be repealed for one year only. When it became apparent that the repeal of the estate tax was not going to be successful, it was important to maintain the highest exemption possible.”
The following link shows Congressman McIntyre’s vote in favor of a Republican motion on HR 4154 that would provide for complete repeal of the Estate Tax.
