I believe in the truth. The truth will set you free. In today’s political climate actually getting to the truth is problematic at best.
Political mailings are an unfortunate part of our system. They’ve become little more than partisan propaganda. Recently our congressional representative sent such a mailing, at taxpayer expense.
Rep. Claudia L. Tenney claims to “Back the Blue” while voting against the bill that formed a bipartisan commission to investigate the 1/6 Insurrection that disrupted the peaceful transfer of power, put police in danger, and resulted in five deaths.
She claims jobs and the economy are her priorities while voting a gainst the American Rescue Plan; the bill that brought federal money to small businesses and the unemployed.
She claims to oppose taxing low-and middle-income earners while opposing the plan that will NOT raise their taxes but on those earning $400,000. Her vote on the 2017 tax bill brought massive tax cuts to the 1 percent.
She claims fiscal responsibility while backing finishing a wall; the same wall that Mexico was to pay for and has questionable effect on immigration.
It’s time we are told the truth, anything else is sheer theater. Rep. Tenney needs to tell the truth.
