“Anyone have an opinion on Thaddeus McCotter?”
Probably the most impressive unknown out there. I’ve heard him on John Batchelor for a couple of years. Impressive. Some may not like his sympathy for labor unions but he represents Michigan and those are his voters.
It’s been awhile since I’ve heard him but I recall him being ahead of the curve on the economic collapse; he understands the importance of having a strong manufacturing base; and he is concerned about potential military threats to the United States.
He seems to be a thinker and genuine enough in what he says, something all too uncommon in politicians.
McCotter of course can deliver the coveted Canine-American and Feline-American vote:
‘5. Proposed a tax break for pet owners.
McCotter asked fellow members of Congress to join him in supporting H. R. 3501, the Humanity and Pets Partnered Through the Years (HAPPY) Act. The bill proposes to allow pet owners a $3,500 annual tax deduction for “qualified pet-care expenses.”’
