You didn’t really think I’d give up on passing out the coveted WyBlog endorsements, did you?
And contrary to the Essex County Establishment RINOs I whole-heartedly endorse Jay Webber to replace Rodney Frelinghuysen as our congressman. Look, Tony Ghee might be a Really Nice Guy. But he’s been a Republican for what, 15 minutes? He voted for Obama fer Chrissakes, twice! Does that engender confidence in his conservative bona fides?
No. It does not. Plus the Star-Ledger tried to write a negative assessment of Jay and it came off sounding almost like something his campaign team would put out.
The polished veteran lawmaker has done some solid work in the Assembly, notably the recent “pass the trash” bill that prevents teachers accused of sexual misconduct from getting other teaching jobs. But he is a Trump enthusiast by any measure, supporting the GOP tax cut and the Obamacare repeal, and he refers to Trump opposition as “outlier extremism.” His own record is an outlier anywhere outside of Alabama: Webber has voted against virtually every gun control measure, voted to defund Planned Parenthood, and his contribution to the health care debate was a bill that allows the purchase of cheap policies out-of-state, which would have destroyed our market. He also rejected equal pay for women as an “anti-employer bill.” Chris Christie once called him the “future” of the GOP in our state. The future has arrived, and it’s a fright.
Aside from the gratuitous swipe at Alabama (Roll Tide!) I don’t see anything there that would make me NOT like Jay Webber:
On Team Trump? Check!
Supports tax cuts? Check!
Repeal Obamacare? Check!
Knows who the opposition really is (“outlier extremists”)? Check!
Pro Second Amendment? Check!
Pro Life? Check!
Free market health care? Check!
Not hoodwinked by the “equal pay” chimera? Check!
A man for the future! The Star-Ledger said so! Except they’re afraid of the future because it doesn’t include very many Democrats and their stuck-on-stupid policies. Everything they deride about Jay stands as mainstream thought in most of the country outside of the coastal enclaves inhabited by our media elites. Get out more fellas, and discover life beyond the Acela Express. You’ll find people who believe in limited government, individual liberty, free markets, constitutional rights, religious freedom, and secure borders. People like Jay Webber. And me.
Jay Webber for Congress. It’s the right choice for our district. It’s the right choice for America.
