Last week, John Sullivan (R-OK CD1) voted against a bill (HR 3056) that would repeal the authority of the Internal Revenue Service to use private debt collection companies to collect delinquent taxes. This policy was a serious flaw in the confidentiality rules of the IRS protecting all tax-payers.
In an email today to constituents, Sullivan makes no mention of this vote and instead, thumps his Bible, condemning the Architect of the Capitol’s decision to remove the word “God” from certificates accompanying flags flown over the Capitol building.
Sullivan uses 241 words to castigate the Capitol Architect, but ignores his vote against the funding for children’s health insurance (S-CHIP) that would add coverage to thousands of needy children in Oklahoma that do not qualify for Medicaid. Sullivan’s vote highlights his friends at big tobacco are more important than the health of Oklahoma’s children.
It’s obvious John Sullivan continues the worn-out diatribe of divisive rhetoric that does not serve the working people of Oklahoma’s First District.
Get real, John. Go see how regular Oklahomans live and what’s important to them.
