NY GOP Centrists Surge in the Polls

Randy Altschuler, a Republican businessman on Long Island, remains in a tight race against Democratic incumbent Tim Bishop.

Congressional Candidates, Face to Face

Randy Altschuler finished by stating he could document the 125 votes Mr. Bishop had made to raise taxes and said he stood for change in Washington, to help business, and keep money here rather than “pay for programs we can’t afford.”

Randy Altschuler’s Blog: Our national debt hovers at a staggering $13 trillion and over the weekend President Obama asked Nancy Pelosi and her allies in Congress to authorize another $50 billion in new spending. If we care about our nation’s fiscal well being, the reckless and dangerous spending must end.

Stop the Games – Move Federal Budget Forward

From Randy Altschuler’s Blog: Tim Bishop needs to stop playing the cynical games of a career politician and fulfill his moral responsibility to his constituents and the American people.

Reelection tough after health vote

Randy Altschuler, a contender for the GOP nomination in New York’s 1st congressional district, which includes much of Suffolk County on Long Island, said he backs repealing the health care legislation and replacing it with a different type of reform because the “spending, tax increases, and heavy government intervention” outweigh its “marginal benefits.”
