Hochul again calls on Corwin to rescind fundraising invitation to Speaker Boehner

ERIE COUNTY – Kathy Hochul, candidate for New York’s 26th Congressional District, today reiterated her opposition to the Shuster amendment after the Federal Aviation Administration yesterday announced their opposition to the Republican-backed amendment that would unravel two years of work to reform the airline industry.

The following is a statement from Erie County Democratic Committee Chair Len Lenihan:

We here in the 26th District want to welcome Jane Corwin back from her fundraising trip in Washington, DC.  On her trip out of state, the Assemblymember found some new friends, as well as some old friends from her Wall Street days.

“Jane Corwin talks a lot about cutting spending, closing corporate loopholes, coming up with alternative energy plans, and protecting our seniors, but the truth is Jane Corwin is all talk and no action.  She says she has a ‘plan’ that would ‘fight to begin getting our national addiction to spending under control.’  Well that plan is a point-by-point copy of the Republican budget, which does none of those things. 

“Assemblymember Corwin has publicly supported a budget that cuts taxes on majo
