HARTFORD, CT - Matthew Corey, candidate for U.S. Congress (Connecticut - District 1), made the following statement regarding the current state of our Federal government and Connecticut's Congressional delegation in Washington:
"Our government is purposely broken for the lust of power and we have fallen with our elected officials. Allegations of injustice at several Federal agencies are creating civil unrest. Connecticut’s Congressional delegation’s silence on this matter is deafening. One can only assume they are protecting this administration at the cost of a nation.
A recent editing of State Department recordings on the Iran Nuclear Deal is most alarming. We hear nothing from our representation. The government by the people and for the people has been cast aside. When a Representative comes home from Washington and speaks with their constituents and lies, they should be held accountable. I have watched Congressman Larson come home year after year and peddle the Washington talk. Since when does the rule of law have no meaning to people in power? His recent endorsement of Secretary Clinton speaks volumes of the corruption he himself embraces. One can understand why Senator Sander’s supporters are so upset about being disenfranchised by the political elites and insiders. If Secretary Clinton is to become President she is condoning selling the Presidency and country at a price to foreign and domestic influence. It mirrors Congressman Larson’s big money influence from donors.
One has to question how he votes on certain bills that hurt the American people or that he is completely incompetent. I also blame this on the agenda based media; how this country longs for the days of true journalism. If one looks at the career of Congressman Larson, the only one who benefits from his policies are the Larson’s and his influential donors."
