Ir-Responsible Republicans turned back on platform, voters

Print Article

The following†Republicans voted with Democrats consistently this legislative session: Reps. Rob Cook of Conrad,†Christy Clark of Choteau, Roy Hollandsworth of Brady, Frank Garner of Kalispell, Geraldine Custer of Forsyth, Tom Berry of Roundup, Tom Richmond of Billings, Steve Fitzpatrick of Great Falls, Ray Shaw of Sheridan, Jeff Welborn of Dillon and Dan Salomon of Ronan.

Montana citizens voted for a Republican majority in both the state House and state Senate. The Montana Republican Party has a platform that was drafted and voted on by all 56 Republican County Central Committees.

In my opinion, these 11 Ir-Responsible Republicans ran as Republicans, lied to voters that they will vote for what is best but have continually voted with the Democrats.

These 11 Ir-Responsible Republicans have blown up our state House of Represenatives, turning their backs on their voters and the Republican Party plus have suspended all the RULES by voting with the Democrats ó now Montana will get Obamacare, the tribes will control Montana water,†and Gov. Bullock will get everything he wanted.

It is a sad day in the history of Montana; these 11 should be ashamed of themselves. When our taxes rise once again to support their ridiculous votes, donít say you werenít warned. óKen Matthiesen, Plains
