What Has Betty Done For You? Or Rather, Not Done For You!

CALLING ALL CD4 REPUBLICANS

Betty is asking for thoughts and opinions at her town hall on February 1st.  Is there a reason it should just be opinions from her base? Congresswoman McCollum represents everyone in CD4.

Take this opportunity to listen to her and then give her feedback on her performance.

Congresswoman McCollum’s Voting Record

Although we are a minority political voice in Saint Paul, we don’t have to be a silent voice.

Our representatives need to hear from all of us.

Please make every effort to attend on Thursday, February 1 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the auditorium at the North High School in North St. Paul.

McCollum News: Republican-Inflicted Chaos Continues; Town Hall Set for Feb. 1

Betty McCollum

“Dear Neighbor:

On Monday, the Senate and then the House passed a short-term continuing resolution (CR), the fourth since the fiscal year started on October 1, 2017. While this 17-day CR ended a three-day government shutdown, it provides Minnesotans with no assurances that Congress will reach a budget agreement or address critical issues like protecting Dreamers.

I opposed this 17-day stopgap spending bill because it is nothing more than a cover up for the abject failure of President Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress to get its work done and pass appropriations bills.

The Republican strategy of lurching from one continuing resolution to the next will continue to cause serious damage to our national security and erode the vital services that families, businesses, and communities depend upon.

While Republicans have finally stopped blocking reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program, this legislation still fails Minnesota children and families. It does nothing to extend funding for our Community Health Centers, which will now be forced to lay off staff and limit services.

Until Republicans are serious about negotiating with Democrats on a budget agreement, the continuing resolution passed today will simply yield another continuing resolution — or shutdown — next month. That is a terrible deal for Minnesota.

For the past year, President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans have wasted time on their disastrous Trumpcare plan to take away health care from millions of Americans and their tax scam giveaway to billionaires and big corporations. They haven’t even tried negotiating in good faith with Democrats on a long-term budget deal and action on urgent national priorities.

Republicans now have until Feb. 8 — with just two full legislative days scheduled between now and then — to reach an agreement with Democrats on a long-term budget deal and national priorities. It is time for President Trump and his Republican Congress to end the chaos and begin to negotiate in good faith.

As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, I will continue to speak out against President Trump and the Republicans’ failure to govern responsibly. And I will continue to vote against further delay on a real budget that meets the needs of our military and upholds our commitments to the American people.

TOWN HALL MEETING SET FOR FEBRUARY 1

The first year of President Trump’s administration has been filled with White House chaos and a Republican Congress that refuses to govern responsibly.

With that in mind, I want to update the Fourth District about what’s going on in Washington and hear directly from you about the issues that matter most to you and your families. I’m hosting a town hall meeting on Thursday, February 1 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the auditorium at the North High School in North St. Paul. North High School is located at 2416 11th Avenue, North Saint Paul, MN 55109.

I’m looking forward to a robust conversation about the Trump administration and our country’s future. Bring a friend or neighbor and join us on Thursday, February 1!”

Sincerely,

Betty McCollum
