Mike Parrish calls for Leadership on Gun Violence

In June 20th Op/Ed in The Times of Chester County Mike Parrish called for courage, leadership and action on gun violence.

By Mike Parrish, Candidate, U.S. Representative, 6th District

Mike Parrish

I am a gun owner and proud supporter of our Second Amendment. As an Army veteran who served in Desert Storm, I have extensive training on how to responsibly use, care for, and safely store firearms. I have also seen first hand the damage that guns can do.

In the aftermath of the shocking Orlando shooting by a radical domestic terrorist, the political discourse has been sadly predictable. I believe we are well past the time for thoughts and prayers or moments of silence offered by elected representatives who refuse to take action on the gun crisis because they are hostages to the NRA. Their actions, or lack thereof, are not leadership.

Consistently Toomey

Joe Sestak’s email is right to point out inconsistencies between what Pat Toomey(R-PA) says in Pennsylvania; and what he does in Washington.   Also troubling are the consistencies evident in Sen Toomey’s recent weekly newsletter (see below fold).

From Toomey: Preventing A Nuclear Armed Iran

Toomey  says “Congress has a constitutional obligation in matters of war, peace, and national security,”   Yet the GOP congress has neglected any obligation to vote on the ongoing wars.

Toomey states that the Iran negotiations are  “one of the most sensitive and vital issues facing America’s national security”.   So sensitive the 47 GOP senators chose to insert themselves into the negotiations.

1. Consistently trying to undermine the President.

2. Consistently favoring a military solution over compromise.

From Toomey: Working For Veterans

Toomeys solution to the VA backlog is not more funding; but ” swift action against those VA workers”

3. Consistently starves agencies then complains government is the problem.

4. Consistently seeks to ‘take action against workers’, especially government  workers.

From Toomey’s:  Protecting Seniors And Improving Medicare

Toomey says:   “bipartisan structural reforms, such as asking some wealthier seniors to pay a bit more, in order to improve Medicare’s long-term financial solvency”

5.Consistently seeks cover from DEMs when cutting Social Security.

6. Consistently spreads fear, uncertainty, and doubt about Social Security.   Social Security, Medicare, and ObamaCare are Democratic initiatives, consistently resisted  by the GOP.

From Toomey’s:  Supporting Small Businesses and Economic Growth

“delivered to the homes of children by volunteers six nights a week. Not only is this program vital to the health of 120 children, it is also incredibly efficient. They produce each meal at a cost of $2.20, far below the federal rate of $3.25 for children’s meals.

7.  Consistently regards the poor as somebody else’s problem.  The GOP’s role is limited to being cheerleaders for benevolent voluntary ‘points of light’.

8.  Consistently glosses over what everyday Americans see everyday.  Instead they focus on estate taxes, upper bracket tax rate, and Wall Street’s latest wish list.   Saving  $1.05 per kid.

Please note these same consistencies are evident in our congressman’s newsletter.

You get the government you vote for.
