When it comes to his progressive values, 10th District Democratic congressional candidate Brad Schneider puts his money where his mouth is. Schneider has criticized his opponent, Congressman Bob Dold, as too partisan for voting with his party 81% of the time. Yet in a new video, Schneider touts his contributions to a cast of partisan liberal Democrats—Jan Schakowsky, Dick Durbin, Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, Charles Schumer, and Tammy Baldwin—all of whom without exception sided with their party on more than 93% of the votes in the 112th Congress, according to the same Washington Post database.
It's becoming readily apparent that Brad Schneider will be a submissive lemming to Nancy Pelosi if elected. He has yet to disagree with the Democratic Party on a single issue and, if anything, is to the left of his partisan friends on key issues like the 2001 and 2003 tax breaks, which Schneider would let expire for Americans making as little as $20,000 a year.
"To merely call Brad Schneider a progressive Democrat is an understatement," said Pat Brady, Illinois Republican Party Chairman. "He is a hyper-partisan liberal who is positioning himself to be nothing more than a reliable Democrat vote in the House."
