City News Poll Shows Hayes Tops Jackson with Voters

Posted June 16th, 2010 at 11:27am

 

 
Isaac Hayes for United States Congress 2010:
            Honesty. Integrity.

From City News:

Republican Candidate for 2nd District Congress Isaac Hayes is gaining ground on his opponent Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. and polls are showing that Jackson’s image as being connected to former indicted Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is hurting the son of the nation’s number one civil rights leader, Jesse Jackson Sr.

Hayes is viewed, according to recently conducted telephone and paper City News poll as the ‘honest one” while those polled had questions about the nature of Congressman Jackson’s role in the alleged attempts to sell and buy the U.S. Senate seat of former U.S. Senator Barack Obama.


Some polled believed Congressman Jackson’s reputation is in question as a result of tapes revealed during the Blagojevich criminal trial.


Those polled, 56% said they felt Congressman Jackson had failed to properly represent the voters of the 2
nd District and 78% of those polled checked a poll question that asked if they believed Congressman Jackson’s voting record reflected a disconnect with the majority of African American residents of the 2nd District.

Those polled also, by a margin of 2 to 1 indicated that they did not trust Congressman Jackson and by a majority those polled said they believed Congressman Jackson’s voting record was more in line with those of interests outside the 2
nd District.

Asked if they felt candidate Hayes would be more representative of the views and objectives of 2
nd District residents, poll respondents by a four to one majority said yes.

Asked if they felt Congressman Jackson had told the truth about his involvement in efforts to purchase the U.S. Senate Seat formerly held by President Barack Obams, 79% said they did not believe Congressman Jackson had been truthful.

Americans for Prosperity Applauds U.S. House Candidate Isaac Hayes

Americans for Prosperity Applauds U.S. House Candidate Isaac Hayes

-Signs No Climate Tax Pledge-

 

CHICAGO—The Illinois chapter of the free-market grassroots group Americans for Prosperity (AFP-IL) today applauded U.S. House candidate Isaac Hayes (2nd District) for signing the group’s “No Climate Tax Pledge.” By doing so, Hayes joins over 285 lawmakers and candidates on the federal, state and local levels pledging to “oppose any legislation relating to climate change that includes a net increase in government revenue.” 

 

“The one thing elected officials should all be able to agree on is that global warming shouldn’t be used as an excuse to hike taxes on citizens and businesses,” said AFP-IL State Director Joe Calomino.  “We encourage all of Illinois ’ elected officials and candidates for elected office to sign.”

 

Current Illinois signers include: U.S. Representative and Senate candidate Mark Kirk; U.S. Senate candidates Patrick Hughes and Eric Wallace; U.S. House candidates Joe Walsh, John Dawson, David McAloon and Henry Meers; and State Senator Ira Silverstein.

 

Cap-and-trade took its first step toward enactment when the U.S. House narrowly passed the Waxman-Markey energy tax bill, which escaped the lower chamber by a scant seven votes despite significant bipartisan opposition.  Senators Boxer (D-Calif.) and Kerry (D-Mass.) have just begun committee hearings on companion legislation in the Senate.  However, key Democratic senators have expressed opposition to attempting to pass cap-and-trade this year.  

 

President Obama has made no secret of his support for the bill, which would be the largest tax increase in American history.  The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office has scored the plan as an $846 billion increase in federal revenue, a burden that will be borne by taxpayers and consumers for decades to come.

 

“Using the guise of climate change to transfer dollars from hard-working citizens to bureaucratic big government is unacceptable,” said Calomino. “Regardless of their stance on global warming, this should be common ground for all of our elected officials at all levels of government.”

 

The pledge is available online at www.NoClimateTax.com.  AFP does not endorse candidates.  All elected officials and candidates are encouraged to sign the pledge and go on the record in opposition to using the climate change issue to increase taxes and grow the size of government.

Americans for Prosperity® (AFP) is a nationwide organization of citizen leaders committed to advancing every individual's right to economic freedom and opportunity. AFP believes reducing the size and scope of government is the best safeguard to ensuring individual productivity and prosperity for all Americans. AFP educates and engages citizens in support of restraining state and federal government growth, and returning government to its constitutional limits. AFP has more than 800,000 members, including members in all 50 states, and 25 state chapters. More than 55,000 Americans in all 50 states have made a financial investment in AFP or AFP Foundation.  For more information, visit www.americansforprosperity.org

FAR LEFT ABANDONING PELOSI-CARE -- EVEN JESSE JACKSON JR.'S SISTER

Posted November 03rd, 2009 at 12:23pm

CHICAGO -- You know the "public option," otherwise known as socialized medicine, is in trouble in the Congress when even the liberal sister of radical left-wing Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is distancing herself from the legislation.

"Yesterday, WVON’s talk show host, Santita Jackson, admitted on her show that she too was 'wary' of the 2,000 page health care bill," says Rev. Isaac C. Hayes, the GOP nominee for Congress in IL-2, where he faces Jackson's corrupt brother next fall.

"Considering that Ms. Jackson is the sister of Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr., we have a staunch supporter of the Representative questioning a bill he is avidly promoting. Mr. Jackson should listen to his big sister because it is apparent he is not listening to other hardworking Americans."

Public Option, Health Care DMV

Posted October 27th, 2009 at 11:48am

If the Public Option is anything like what I experienced yesterday at the DMV (which I suspect), please call the insane asylum.

Yesterday, I had to update my driver’s license. A pragmatic, streamliner like me figured that I would be in and out of the DMV in no more than twenty minutes. I would go in, update my address, give the camera a nice face to photograph (lol), and then return back to work. Well so much for dreaming.

My public Department of Motor Vehicles’ option turned into a fifty minute quest for Zelda. The first line I waited in was to get a number to go sit and wait to be called. For some reason the long line didn’t seem to stop people from walking right up and receiving assistance while I waited patiently with other frustrated Chicagoans.

Next, they called my number and I went to a desk to explain for a second time that I was there to update my driver’s license. I thought that information would have been on the paper the first guy gave me. With experience working in the service industry I hate having to repeat things. Whatever happened to good customer service where you do all the work for the customer?

I was then sent to another long line to wait to pay for the new driver’s license. Two weeks ago the license would have cost me $10, but being a good Illinoisan I decided to wait until they raised the fee to $30 – a 300% backdoor tax increase.

After that, I had to wait in another line to get a vision test. Somehow the eyeglasses didn’t tip them off that an optometrist had already asked me to read “line 3”. Anyhew, I read line 3 and acknowledged that I saw the blinking lights on the two sides of the screen (although I heard the guy before me say the same thing).

Still not done yet, I was asked to wait in another line to take a photo. (Stand in front of the blue screen and smile – Flash.) I then take a seat to wait for my license to be printed and then voila, government efficiency at its best.

Is this what we really want as Americans – a health care version of the DMV? That’s exactly what the Public Option is. They may have bullied Pharmaceuticals, Insurers, Doctors and Medical Associations, but they won’t bully us into the Department of Health Insurance. The Department of Motor Vehicles is frightening enough.

$1 Trillion Gamble

Posted October 23rd, 2009 at 12:01pm

The latest push to force the public option on the American healthcare system is a last ditch effort by the Radical Left (i.e., Pompous Pelosi and the Congressional Crack Caucus) for a single-payer system. What’s so bad about the government running our health care system? Everything.

Dare I mention dash-for-clunkers (car sales have now plummeted), the U.S. Post Office (billions of dollars in the red), or Medicare/Medicaid? Since we are talking about health care let’s look at how efficient our government has been.

In 1965 our beloved government told us Medicaid would cost $238 million in its first year, but costs slightly overran to more than $1 billion. Medicare, so they said, would cost $12 billion in 1990, but its costs slightly increased to $90 billion in 1990.

So let’s look at this again. Medicaid exceeded first year projections by $700 million, and Medicaid exceeded twenty-five year projections by almost $80 billion.
Do we really want to gamble on a $1 trillion projection based on our government’s track record of coming in under budget?
