GEPHARDT TALKS A LOT ABOUT THE ECONOMY, BUT WHEN IT WAS TIME TO ACT. . . HE DIDN’T!

Gephardt Says He Wants To Focus On The Economy, But How Credible Is He? Where Was He When His Vote Counted? Time After Time, Vote After Vote, He Voted Against Legislation Critical To Strengthening The Economy And Creating Jobs. President Bush Led And The Republican House Took Action By Making The Tax Cuts Permanent, Passing Pension Reform, And Passing An Energy Bill Which Allowed Expanded Domestic Drilling For Oil. Problem Is, He Opposed Every Last One Of Them! And Talk About Fiscal Restraint? Gephardt Opposed The President’s Budget And Daschle’s Democrat Senate Still Hasn’t Passed One—A Historic Failure!

__________________________________________________________________

PRESIDENT BUSH AND THE REPUBLICAN HOUSE WORKED TO PASS LEGISLATION CRITICAL TO STRENGTHENING THE ECONOMY AND CREATING JOBS

BUDGET: The President’s budget, passed by the House on March 20, practices fiscal restraint, bolstering America’s economy and keeping interest rates low.
(Senator Don Nickles [R-OK], Press Conference, August 1, 2002; H. Con. Res. 353, Roll Call #79: Agreed To 221-209: R 219-2; D 1-206; I 1-1, March 20, 2002)

TAX CUTS: The House voted to make the President’s tax relief permanent on April 18 and voted to eliminate the marriage penalty on June 13, helping Americans make ends meet and creating jobs.
(H.R. 586, Roll Call #103: Passed 229-198: R 219-1; D 9-196; I 1-1, April 18, 2002; H.R. 4019, Roll Call #229: Passed 271-142: R 210-0; D 60-141; I 1-1, June 13, 2002)

PENSION REFORM: The House passed pension reform on April 11, protecting the retirement future of Americans.
(H.R. 3762, Roll Call #92: Approved 255-163: R 208-2; D 46-160; I 1-1, April 11, 2002)

PRESCRIPTION DRUGS: The House passed prescription drug coverage on June 28, protecting the elderly from rising drug prices.
(H.R. 4954, Roll Call #282: Passed 221-208: R 212-8; D 8-199; I 1-1, June 28, 2002)

ENERGY: The House approved the President’s energy plan, allowing expanded domestic oil drilling, keeping oil prices low and stimulating job growth.
(H.R. 4, House Roll Call #320: Approved 240-189: R 203-16; D 36-172; I 1-1, August 2, 2001; H.R. 4 As Amended, Senate Roll Call #94: Approved 88-11: R 45-3; D 42-8; I 1-0, April 25, 2002)

WELFARE REFORM: The House voted to reauthorize welfare reform on May 16, preserving welfare benefits for those who really need it.
(H.R. 4737, Roll Call #170: Approved 229-197: R 214-4; D 14-192; I 1-1, May 16, 2002)

AND CONGRESSMAN GEPHARDT, HE OPPOSED EVERY ONE OF ‘EM!

Please make sure that every voter you know gets a copy of this! This is an example of what Gephardt would be like as Speaker of the House -- the President would get nothing passed!

All of you must realize how important this election is to this Country and the time is now to act.

If you have not already volunteered for a Republican Congressional, Senate, Governor, or any other Republican candidate, please do so today! We all need your help.

We cannot allow the DemocRATs to take control of the House or Keep the Senate. If you cannot volunteer at least spread the word with these research papers we have been putting up. Let everyone on your email, your friends, your family, and strangers know about what the DemocRATs have been up to!

Thanks!
