Mission Statement:

    Robert Weiner Associates / Weiner Public News writes opinion articles, news stories, and action releases, and conducts and generates radio and television interviews, that reflect our company's commitment to American values of helping people, freedom, justice, and integrity. These qualities are plain for all to see, whether in the life of a political organization, government agency, the living culture of a corporation, or the actions and words of a great athlete.

    RWA and Weiner Public News creates, sharpens, and delivers the message that can and often does define the event or issue.. We develop selected issues (yes, that's right: if an issue is boring we won't write about it if we think people won't care about it) in government, political and private sectors. We generate news coverage to impact a message for an audience.

Gingrich spoke truth about its being radical right wing social engineering, but now is litmus test and could cost them the election -- and could be shown in NY 26th district Tuesday night.
          • The new $14 trillion deficit is not a mystery - - $4 trillion from Bush/R tax cuts last decade, $4 Trillion from R tax cuts Obama said we would not do but then compromised or could not keep govt running with new R House, and $3 trillion for the 2 wars when you include the rehab and health and Intel... so with that $11 you're back to the $3 trillion Clinton level and he was reducing it while creating 22.5 million jobs - - but R's as David Broder said in column 5-6 years ago want to dismantle the New Deal and all social programs.

He was later Chief of Staff of the House Aging Committee, brought Colonel Sanders in as a witness, and was credited by Chairman Pepper with leading landmark legislation to abolish mandatory retirement as committee chief of staff.
