Scott Tipton’s votes on veterans epitomize his failed promises to the people of this District. Tipton often professes to fight for veterans and veteran’s care, but a closer examination of his record reveals that’s just not the case. This glaring discrepancy between Tipton’s promises and his record exists for just about every other issue that matters to the people of the 3rd Congressional District: seniors, agriculture, the environment, healthcare, working people – the list goes on. Tipton knows he can’t run on his record because his votes are unpopular with the people of the District.
The people of this District have a right to know about the reality of Tipton’s record. On all sides of the political spectrum, Americans respect the veterans who have served our country. They deserve full access to healthcare and other benefits for their public service. Failing to honor these promises as a Representative speaks to the broader failure to address the needs of the people in our District.
