Our far right extremist senator, James Inhofe is known mostly as a Climate Change Denier but that barely scratches the surface of what’s wrong with Inhofe. For someone who is so aggressively pro-war, he’s incredibly anti-veteran and anti-service member.
Here’s some facts:
1. The Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America looked at his voting record and gave him a D-.
2. Inhofe cast the deciding vote against the bipartisan Health Care for Veterans Amendment in October 2005. This killed a bill that had passed in the House 398 to 19.
A month later, Senators Chuck Grassley and Barbara Boxer co-sponsored a bill to get desperately needed funds for counseling, mental health, and rehabilitation services for veterans diagnosed with mental illness, post-traumatic stress disorder, or substance abuse. Again, Inhofe voted against our military veterans.Jim Inhofe votes against our veterans but always falls in line to support outrageous tax cuts for millionaires and Wall Street cronies.
But vets aren’t the only people Inhofe has consistently short-changed. His voting record on active duty military personnel is abysmal– the worst in the entire U.S. Senate. Of the 14 roll calls involving the welfare of our fighting men and women since May, 2003, Inhofe has voted against them a breathtaking 14 times.
Most Oklahomans don’t support the Bush/McCain occupation of Iraq and can force James Inhofe into retirement from the US Senate this November.
