Not For Arizona: McSally Voting With Mitch McConnell 98% Of The Time
McSally has proven that Arizonans can’t trust her to put them first in Washington; instead, she’s voting with Mitch McConnell and her corporate backers
Already, corporate special interest groups have announced nearly $1,500,000 to keep McSally voting their way in the Senate
MADISON — One year after Arizonans rejected Martha McSally in the 2018 election, she’s become one of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and her corporate backers’ most reliable votes in the Senate — and Arizonans are paying the price. McSally has taken a number of votes that have set up her corporate backers to make even more money, while jeopardizing Arizonans’ health care access — and even Arizona’s military readiness at Fort Huachuca.
Overall, McSally is voting with McConnell’s agenda 98% of the time:
- That includes McSally’s three votes to support a $30 million funding raid from Arizona’s Fort Huachuca — jeopardizing a construction project that the Department of the Army deemed necessary to correct “unsafe” conditions and “promote a healthier, safer work environment” for military personnel.
- It includes McSally’s vote last week to protect an expansion of “junk” insurance plans — plans that the AARP opposes because they let insurance companies ignore pre-existing condition coverage protections and charge older Americans more for coverage.
- And it includes McSally’s repeated votes to give lifetime appointments to anti-health care judges — including judges who are hostile to coverage protections that prevent McSally’s insurance industry backers for jacking up prices on people who have a pre-existing condition.
Given Martha McSally’s record of putting her corporate donors first in Washington, it should come as no surprise that outside groups funded by corporate special interests have already announced roughly $1.5 million in TV ads to keep McSally working for them in the Senate.
“Martha McSally keeps taking votes that are great for her corporate donors and closely align with Mitch McConnell, but they’re also proof that she can’t be trusted to look out for people here in Arizona,” said Arizona Democratic Party spokesperson Brad Bainum. “It’s no surprise that McSally’s corporate donors are already spending millions to keep her working for them in Washington.”
