Senator Debbie Stabenow’s 95% Partisan Voting Record Breaks Campaign Promise For Bipartisan Leadership

The National Security and Opportunity Fund, a 501c4 nonprofit organization focused on promoting strong leadership in Michigan, expressed their alarm over Senator Debbie Stabenow’s broken promises and hyper-partisan voting record. In a statement, Bettina Inclán, Executive Director of the National Security and Opportunity Fund, said Stabenow should apologize to the people of Michigan for her ineffectual voting record:

 

“In 2000 when Debbie Stabenow was running for the U.S. Senate she said, “I’ve been known for working across party lines to really get things done,” but in reality, she’s been a hyper-partisan senator consistently voting with Senate Democrats 95% of the time and has been named among “The most liberal Members of Congress” choosing to put party politics ahead of the best interest of the people of Michigan.

 

For a person who has been in politics for 43 years, Senator Stabenow has been ineffective in Washington D.C., and unable to “get things done,” passing only six bills in her two decades in Congress, two of those bills were to name federal buildings. Her hyper-partisanship and ineffectual leadership have made her unable to find a compromise for the Farm Bill before it expired and threatened the future of Michigan working families, farmers and the state’s vital agricultural industry.

 

While Michiganders want a solution-focused leader open to a bipartisan approach to our country’s challenges, Sen. Stabenow hyper-partisan voting record is more in line with liberal coastal elites like New York’s Senator Chuck Schumer and Massachusetts’s Senator Elizabeth Warren than the average Michigan resident.

 

People are really sick and tired of all the partisanship, Stabenow should apologize to the people of Michigan for misleading them about her intentions to be bipartisan and her inability to get things done. Michigan deserves better.”
