Deserve better

I believe the majority of Americans want our politicians to work together, and until we elect people who are willing to do so, gridlock will continue. Facts to consider regarding U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren:

• He voted for the Keystone pipeline, fracking and more natural gas pipes while cutting funding for alternative energy.

• Voted to have gridlock Congress in control of carbon pollution and rules and regulations regarding clean air, clean water, food safety, work safety, chemical safety.

• Voted against helping our district with a “no” vote to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), extending unemployment and veterans benefits.

• Voted 88 percent of the time with the extreme tea party, including to shut down the government and wasting taxpayer dollars with more than 50 votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

We deserve better. We deserve someone who will work across party lines to get Congress working again for you and me. It’s time to elect Dennis Anderson.
