Support for Senator John McCain
Our next President needs a record of fighting Washington’s “Business as Usual.” Senator John McCain has a proven record showing he is not more of “Bush Same.” John McCain has sponsored 473 Reform Bills and co-sponsored 809 Reform Bills since Jan. 21, 1993. Examples are:
(a)Sen. John McCain foresaw the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac Mortgage Crisis more than two years before it happened, and co-sponsored legislation in 2006 that would have required greater oversight of the mortgage lending entities. Obama did nothing to speak out at the time in behalf of the legislation and would not sign on as a co-sponsor.
(b)Taxpayer Bill of Rights Amendment of 1996.
(c)Voted YES on Minimum Wage Increase Act of 2006.
(d)A bill to amend the Social Security Act, to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to repeal the increase in the tax on Social Security benefits and to provide incentives for the purchase of long-term care insurance.
(e)A bill to establish certain environmental protection procedures within the area comprising the border region between the United States and Mexico.
(f)A bill to provide increased rail transportation security.
(g)A bill providing greater transparency with respect to lobbying activities.
John McCain is a member of 14 Senate Committees ranging from Armed Forces to Interstate Commerce, Transportation, to Science, Technology and Innovation.
John McCain isn’t the eloquent speechmaker as Senator Barack Obama; however, actions speak louder than words. John McCain is a man of reform and change.
