Dear Greg Walden,
We’re going to spend $4 BILLION to repaint Air Force One. We gave tax cuts to the rich that add nearly $2 TRILLION to the debt. We’re spending $50 MILLION on a military parade. But we don’t have the $1-2 BILLION to fund the VA Mission Act. When did the Republican party deviate from balanced budgets, reined-in spending, and supporting our veterans? In all of this nonsense, Greg Walden has said nothing, yet he claims to support veterans and moderate spending. Of course, he led the charge on ACA repeal, which would have been devastating for veterans. He hasn’t championed legislation to solve the homeless veteran crisis, even though we’re seeing an increase for the first time in 7 years. We don’t need parades or repainted planes or this congress. We do need a better representative, and I think that person is Jamie McLeod-Skinner.
*A note from the Team at OFBG: It has come to our attention that the $4B price tag is for building two new aircraft, not simply for repainting.
