The DeLauro Factor

Wayne Winsley, committed to represent all the people of Connecticut’s 3rd U.S. Congressional District

Wayne Winsley, committed to represent all the people of Connecticut’s 3rd U.S. Congressional District, today released the following statement.

“Between 2008 and 2011, while so many of our fellow citizens were losing jobs and family incomes were shrinking, the personal wealth of Incumbent DeLauro ballooned from about 5 million dollars to over 17 million.” 

“That’s a financial growth factor of more than 3X. Such a ‘DeLauro factor’ is clear. 

This ‘DeLauro factor’ suggests that this incumbent has been working only on monetary success for herself and her family - instead of appropriately focusing her work on behalf of all the people. Consider the following:

  • Imagine… if - instead - Incumbent DeLauro had worked… to grow Working Family incomes by that factor of 3X?
  • Imagine… if - instead - Incumbent DeLauro had worked… to grow private businesses by that factor of 3X?
  • Imagine… if - instead - Incumbent DeLauro had worked… to grow new jobs by that factor of 3X?
  • Imagine… if - Incumbent DeLauro, who has been in the job for 22 years had truly worked… for all the people?

Regrettably, wishful imagination is not the reality.  The ‘DeLauro factor’ facts tell us the disturbing truth. 


  • DeLauro family income ballooned by a factor of 3X; while working families lost more than $3,000 of income.
  • Meanwhile, across Connecticut, more than 163,000 citizens search for work having been cast adrift on the sea of unemployment by DeLauro, her disciples in the Congressional Delegation and the State Government majority.

The bottom line:

Incumbent DeLauro isn’t working for the people… because Incumbent ‘DeLauro… hasn’t worked… for all the people.

For many more people to get - and keep - jobs, it’s time for Incumbent DeLauro to lose hers.  It’s time to let her go.”

My Pledge

“I, Wayne Winsley, will serve the citizens of the Third Congressional District with forthrightness, honor, and integrity. As your representative in the congress, every citizen can count on me to work tirelessly to get government out of the way of business and individual entrepreneurs so that every private enterprise can grow, create more jobs, and hire more people.”

Rosa “out-of-touch-with-reality” DeLauro has proposed raising the federal minimum wage in three stages to $9.80 per hour: an increase of 35% over the current level. Studies project job losses in the range of 256,000 to 768,000 following a wage hike of this magnitude, according to Employment Policies Institute, a nonprofit research organization focusing on employment growth, with emphasis on issues that affect entry-level employment. Bureau of Labor Statistics indicate that of employees working at or near the current minimum wage of $7.25, nearly 50% are under age 25; 43% work in food prep & serving occupations, where profit margins are low. The result will be loss of hours, employment, or both. Among teens, the unemployment rate is already 23.8% nationwide. http://www.wcbm.com/includes/news_items/29/news_items_more.php?id=161961&section_id=29

Delauro's deceit. Regardless of your particular political persuasions, she should be called on this--and there should be a series of debates, so voters can make an informed choice: http://youtu.be/IhkZ0N-iT2Y

Rosa DeLauro's net worth now exceeds $25 MILLION. Open a free account here http://www.legistorm.com/ and see for yourself what DeLauro is worth. Only significant difference between May 2012 disclosure and May 2011 disclosure: her husband’s “John Hancock Retirement-Lifecycle 2015” account is worth c. $1 Million less than it was the previous year. (Compare page 4 of each report.) That's because they CASHED IT OUT to make a lump-sum payoff of the $1Million mortgage on their New Haven residence (see 2012 disclosure). During the recession (which supposedly is over) DeLauro's worth increased by c. $2 MILLION PER YEAR. Not bad for a politician who’s been running one of the biggest scams in D.C. for NEARLY 22 years.

DeLauro needs to follow Chris Dudd into retirement! She got her cushy gig (and route to riches with her lobbyist husband Stanley Greenberg) because of her family name and position as a Dodd staffer. This 22 yr. incumbent is totally incompetent to do anything but continue her votes which have bankrupted our Nation!! She's so incompetent on facts and fiscal matters that she has still recently told seniors "Don't worry, Social Security will never be insolvent." Her promises are as empty as her head and debate skills, which is why she is "dodging" Wayne Winsley, and why she never holds Town Hall meetings with her constituents! Wayne Winsley is a patriot (Navy vet) who is extremely intelligent, articulate, and totally Principled and a man of INTEGRITY! DeLauro will melt into a corner if she ever debates this superb candidate for congress. Please spread the word about Wayne, and help elect him with contributions, and volunteer your time if you have any concern for our nation's and your posterity's FUTURES!! You don't have to live in the 3rd CD to contribute and/or volunteer. Friends and patriots from out of state can even donate to his campaign. See opportunities to meet Wayne, with events this weekend shown below. http://winsleyforcongress.org/ Wayne is also on FB: http://www.facebook.com/Winsley.for.Congress
