Yarmuth Re-Elected, Says Next Two Years Will Be “Odd” In Washington

by Gabe Bullard on November 2, 2010

Incumbent Congressman John Yarmuth will return to Washington for a third term.

Yarmuth defeated Todd Lally Tuesday night. In his acceptance speech, Yarmuth criticized Lally and other Republicans for trying to tie Democratic candidates to President Barack Obama and outgoing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

“It makes me really fear for this country when you have two people who work every minute of every day to make life better for every American and they put up with the…nonsense…that they put up with,” he said.

Yarmuth then touted his work on Democratic legislation such as the health care overhaul and financial reform as reasons for his re-election. He said he will remain loyal to his platform, even though he will be in the minority party for the first time of his congressional career.

It still amazes me (as an Independant) that so many like you still do not understand what “we the people” are wanting. It does not matter how much you “got for us” if you can’t pay for it w/o robbing someone else. Call it Socialism or just plain thievery…they amount to the same thing. Adding more taxes to anyone…rich or poor is out of line with the people. You’ve been given a 2nd chance (probation)…don’t blow it or 2012 will be even more of a change.
