"Our" Congresswoman Receives the Lowest Possible Grade on National Security

Congresswoman for New York’s Fourth Congressional District Carolyn McCarthy received an F from the national security organization, Keeping America Safe.

Keeping America Safe stated, “McCarthy’s grade of F is based on a comprehensive study undertaken by the group, which analyzed every significant national security vote cast by Rep. McCarthy since 2001. McCarthy’s failing grade is rooted in her multiple votes to transfer terrorist detainees, currently housed at the naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to U.S. soil, thereby granting them additional Constitutional rights and hindering intelligence gathering. McCarthy further cast a vote in opposition to placing Guantanamo detainees on the no-fly list.”

They continued, “Each member’s score is an indicator of whether he or she supports unapologetic and strong policies in the war on terror, victory in the wars this country fights, and the strong American military needed in the dangerous world in which we live.”

Becker states, “This goes to show just how out of touch Ms. McCarthy is, not only in the district, but with the rest of the American people. If I’m elected this Tuesday, I will work tirelessly to protect our borders.”

Fran Becker is the Republican candidate for New York's 4th Congressional District. He is running against incumbent Carolyn McCarthy (D-Garden City), who has held the seat for 14 years. Fran is a business owner, an employer, and a certified financial planner. Fran has the background, experience and qualifications to get the job done in Congress.
