Rep. Elise Stefanik's new tagline is "Results not Resistance," but since being elected in 2015, Elise has had years to tally results for health care, prescription costs, broadband expansion, tax reduction, safeguarding Social Security, the environment and the republic.
Shall we go over the results of having Elise Stefanik as our representative? No positive results in access to health care, no lowered premiums, no improved offerings, no safeguarding pre-existing conditions. No results in lowering prescription costs. No results to increase broadband for NY-21. Frightening results in the GOP expansion of the federal deficit, which has now swelled to $898 billion during economic growth (remember 2008, anyone?). No results to safeguard Social Security (see above). Negative results in air and water quality for the ADK under the GOP EPA. No results in holding the Russians accountable as part of Elise's oath under the House Intelligence Committee, which is now defunct and dormant under GOP leadership.
Health care costs are rising, mostly due to damage inflicted destabilizing the ACA, our planet has no ally in the GOP EPA, Net Neutrality fell under the GOP FCC, further limiting fair access for our North Country internet accessibility, and Elise invited Trump to Fort Drum where they both did not name McCain, even though the military funding bill was named in his honor.
I am a proud member of the resistance to Elise Stefanik’s so-called results. I am voting for Tedra Cobb for Congress because I want different results. I want positive results. I want accountable and accessible representation. Vote for Tedra Cobb on Nov. 6.
