Return US Senate to Work

letter_to_editor-300x182[1]

Congress has a “do nothing” reputation and deplorable approval rating. But the Republican US House has passed over 350 bills, including over 40 jobs bills; it’s the Democrat US Senate that has not heard, much less voted on them, because Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid refuses to allow it, making Harry Reid responsible for Congress’ “do nothing” reputation. A re-elected Kay Hagan will vote to continue Harry Reid as “do nothing” leader, especially since he’s spent so much on her ads. A Senator Thom Tillis will not.

A senator is elected to represent constituents. 61% of NC voters passed the Marriage Amendment. Senator Hagan opposes it. 70% of North Carolinians support voter ID. Senator Hagan requested Attorney General Eric Holder sue NC to stop voter ID. Thom Tillis is defending the Marriage Amendment since Democrat Attorney General Roy Cooper is not. Thom Tillis passed the voter ID bill as Speaker. Thom Tillis is representing NC people.

Do you deplore money that ‘buys’ elections? The 9th Richest US Senator Hagan has raised and spent millions more than Thom Tillis. “Happy-hour” Hagan even went to a liberal NY cocktail fundraiser instead of to a security briefing on ISIS. Then, who knows how much of the millions Obama has raised between golf games have been spent on her behalf. A vote for Thom Tillis will be a vote against rewarding enormous “vote-buying”.

Hagan’s and her spokespeople’s repeated lies about $500M education cuts have been refuted by fact checkers who agree the truth is Tillis has overseen $600M+ real education spending increases. See http://www.factcheck.org/2014/10/factchecking-the-north-carolina-senate-race/.

Put Congress back to work for the nation: vote Tom Tillis.
