An Anti Betty Letter

An anti Betty letter in the Pioneer Press from our own Jeff Williams.

She should take a stand on Israel

As the world focuses on the mounting tensions between the Israelis and Hamas, the House of Representatives made an overwhelming statement with its 390-5 vote on Jan. 9 supporting Israel. Resolutions like this happen all the time. What doesn't always happen is 40 members either not voting or voting "present."

We elect members of Congress to go to Washington to do the job of passing legislation and taking sides in matters, not to just sit there and take up space. Sadly, one of those members happens to be our very own 4th District congresswoman, Betty McCollum.

First, she voted for adding $700 billion to our national debt with the banking bailout. Then, she adds billions by bailing out Detroit. Now, she votes "present" because she doesn't want to take a stand. We constituents deserve better and should remember this during the next election.
