VIDEO: The Pelosi/Adler Agenda: Wrong for New Jersey

September 18, 2010

The NRCC has released a new video.  Adler’s “I’m a centrist” is exposed.

NRCC Comment:

“John Adler’s a typical career politician who says one thing and does another.  He claims to be an independent, but his record proves he’s a party-line vote on spending, taxes and big government policies in Washington.  By voting with Speaker Pelosi over 90 percent of the time, flip-flopping on the stimulus bill and failing to turn the economy around, John Adler has shown New Jersey voters that he’s simply not looking out for them.  He’s only looking out for himself.”

Tory Mazzola, NRCC Spokesman


  • John Adler may claim to be independent, but the truth is that he votes with Speaker Pelosi more than 90 percent of the time, according to the Washington Post.


  • When the stimulus bill passed Adler said “the bill will also save or create an estimated 171,000 New Jersey jobs and reduce unemployment by a projected 2.1%.” (Press Release, Rep. John Adler, 1/27/2009)


  • The reality is that in January 2009, which is when the stimulus bill passed, unemployment in New Jersey was 7.5 percent.  In July 2010 it was 9.7 percent.  Unemployment in New Jersey has actually increased.  That probably explains why Adler’s position on the stimulus has shifted so much. 


  • July 2010: Adler admitted that the stimulus bill “hasn’t yet worked” in terms of putting people back to work.


  • August 2010: Adler criticized those who point out the failures of the stimulus as “political tactics people take when they’re desperate.” 


  • Questions: Didn’t he just criticize the stimulus bill?  Does that mean he’s desperate?  Did he flip back to supporting the stimulus because his party leaders warned him about being critical of their policies?
