Shuster’s Halvorson criticisms hypocritical

Bill Shuster’s campaign has said Art Halvorson is not a conservative, and they claim that Congressman Shuster is the fiscal conservative candidate.

They have gone as far as to call Halvorson a hypocrite.

Let’s take a look at the record and see who the real hypocrite is. During his time in Congress, Shuster has voted 14 times to raise the debt ceiling. He did not offer any type of plan each of those times that would bring the federal government’s spending under control.

Shuster has done nothing to stop the wasteful spending in Washington. He wants to bring back earmarks and the ability to spend your tax dollars on wasteful pork barrel projects. That does not sound like the record of a fiscal conservative. The facts show us who the real hypocrite is.

Bill Shuster needs to look at his own voting record, before going around calling others a hypocrite.
