Only 18 More Weeks with Congressman Faso

Welcome to the response to John Faso’s weekly newsletter “Work Week With Congressman Faso.”

Each week we will highlight what the Congressman is neglecting to tell his constituents, point out his inconsistencies and hypocrisies and show how he damages NY-19 with his devotion to Trump and the Republican Agenda.

Week ending Aug 3

John Faso’s statements from his weekly newsletter are in red:

Upcoming Veterans Resource Fair

On Saturday, August 11th, I’ll be hosting another Veterans’ Resource Fair in Schoharie County to provide veterans an opportunity to access resources they have earned. The fair will take place at the Schoharie County Sunshine Fair and will be located next to the Cobleskill Fire Department Booth.

Faso no friend of veterans

Shame on you, Faso. How can you claim to be promoting opportunities for veterans when your Republican Budget slashes veterans’ health and life resources? Will Fischer, Iraq War Veteran and Director of Government Relations for VoteVets, says it best:
“As those who served this nation in uniform, we cannot be more clear—we will not accept increases to the VA Budget and DOD Budget, on the backs of the poor, seniors, and the security and safety of the American people. We will not allow Donald Trump to pit veterans and the military against everyone else. We can pay for an increase in force structure, and more resources at the VA, while keeping important programs intact for seniors, working Americans and those Americans facing hard times. We can also fund programs that build alliances overseas, and prevent the climate disaster that General Mattis has deemed a top national security threat.
Instead the Trump/Republican budget tells Americans they believe an F-35 is more important than providing Meals on Wheels to an elderly woman starving to death in Georgia. They say America must pick between new equipment at the VA or heating assistance for a family on hard times in states like Indiana who may freeze to death. His budget says we must pick between a naval fleet, or a safe, responsible, and accountable air traffic control system, to ensure safe air travel for millions.
These are choices we do not need to make. Donald Trump and the Republicans should be ashamed that they are forcing such an un-American budget down the throats of decent, hardworking Americans, many of whom are veterans, themselves. . . . We put our lives on the line to protect the very people this budget hurts, and we stand ready to fight for them, again, against this unnecessarily cruel budget.”

That’s it for this week’s rebuttal.
