McCaskill and Stabenow win GOLD… for wasteful spending.
American Future Fund is releasing a web ad today featuring Senators Debbie Stabenow of Michigan and Claire McCaskill of Missouri. The ad proposes – what if there were another Olympic event? For wasteful spending. If so, Stabenow and McCaskill would surely make it to the Wasteful Spending finals. And it would be a neck and neck tie for gold.
Consider this – both Stabenow and McCaskill have voted for trillions in new spending, increasing our national debt to $16 Trillion. They voted for:
- $2 trillion health care law
- $831 billion failed stimulus
- Nearly $1 million to study the division of labor – among ants
Claire McCaskill voted 7 times against earmark reform. Seven. That alone must be a world record. She also voted for a $467 billion tax increase, just last year.
Debbie Stabenow flip flopped on raising taxes for millions of Michigan residents. Not only that, Detroit has 18% unemployment.
AFF Founder Nick Ryan said, “Trillions in new spending. $16 Trillion debt. These two Senators have set some astounding world records – but not the kind that will make Michigans, Missourians or Americans proud. It’s time for real job creation and to restore the health of our economy.”
