In a recent letter to constituents, Representative David Price described opposition candidate BJ Lawson's position on various issues. It would be informative to get BJ Lawson's point by point response to each issue as described by Representative David Price. Similarly, it would be informative to get Representative David Price's response to Price according to Lawson on the issues. I don't have the time to compile or find this one, if someone does please post it in the same format as this post but as a separate post. Lets hope to get their responses ...
Why we support B.J. Lawson This is a community of Democrats in and
around the 4th District of North Carolina, and indeed from around the
entire state and the entire country, who support the campaign of
William "B.J." Lawson for House of Representatives. You may ask why we
support B.J. when there is an 11-term and well-known Democratic
incumbent, David Price, currently representing the 4th District. Well,
In the upcoming election, for Progressives, is BJ Lawson an alternative to Representative David Price? BJ Lawson is running as a Republican and his winning the NC 4th Congressional District could contribute to Democrats losing control of the House. Does BJ Lawson believe that there is no role for government in regulating the financial system or industry?
On the other hand, how in the world could the question of a Republican possibly having a chance against an incumbent Democrat of our District be possible? Could it be related to Representative David Price taking for granted the security of his position to the point of believing that voting for the Wall Street Bail-out twice, US Patriot Act, funding the war for many years (he has recently discontinued this, thanks!), sanctioning the most recent Israeli bombardment of Lebanon, voting in favor of the Bankrupcy law, not being against the bio-defense lab of Butner, etc ... not have any repercussions?
BE AN INFORMED VOTER: Come out and find out how these candidates compare with one another TODAY!
David Price's opponent in the November election, BJ Lawson, raised $170,000 yesterday in what is apparently a Congressional record for one-day totals in North Carolina. He has raised $237,000 total since David Price voted in favor of the Wall Street bailout bill last week.
Lawson says his latest polls have Price at less than 50% support in the Fourth District, compared to his usual winning percentage of more than 60%. With 10% of voters left undecided, is it possible Price is in trouble this election?
The stock market opens after the 700 billion tax-payer-money Wall Street bail-out dropping a further 200 points with markets all over the world losing value also. Furthermore, US Bank Failures expected to rise despite the Wall Street bail-out. The (non) effects of wasting 700 billion + losing 100 billion of tax revenue are already beginnig to be se
The country has been getting ransacked over the last couple of weeks. On August 4th 2008 both houses of congress (Rep. David Price included) sanctioned H.R. 3221 and the conservatorship of Fannie and Freddie essentially saddeling the U.S. government with 5.4 trillion in debt that it is now responsible for!!!
North Carolina has offered county commissioners 2 choices in raising taxes: land transfer tax or sales tax. These
taxes are, in part, needed as counties and municipalities are
struggling to fill in growing gaps that are left after the funding cuts
in social services

Study Requested by Congressmen Price and Visclosky
WASHINGTON Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Congressman David Price (D-NC) announced today that the Government Accountability Office (GAO) has accepted his request to conduct a review of the enforcement of fire safety standards at nuclear power plants throughout the country.
I've heard some folks call them the David Price Six, which has a nice ring to it. But it's also notable that Representative Price has requested to drop the charges against the six protesters who occupied his office in an effort to get him to more vigorously oppose the war.
Six local protesters go on trial this afternoon on trespassing charges in connection with an anti-war demonstration in U.S. Rep. David Price's office in February.
