Tenney’s votes show lack of compassion, decency

This time of year, between Thanksgiving and Christmas, we think of families, our communities and those less fortunate.

Unfortunately, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney shows her lack of compassion and lack of basic human decency. Ms. Tenney voted against H.R. 7946, the Veteran Service Recognition Act. Which would allow members of the military and veterans with honorable discharges to apply for citizenship.

Instead, Ms. Tenney wants to deport men and women who defended our nation. Because this legislation strengthens our military, our families and communities supporters of this legislation included the American Legion, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America and Veterans for American Ideal.

Ms. Tenney also voted against H.R. 8404, the Respect for Marriage Act. This legislation would allow marriages sanctioned in one state who be legal in other states. Marriage is the basic unit of families and the supporting structures of our communities.

Ms. Tenney’s distain for families both military families and civilian families, demonstrates how she wants to weaken the fabric of our communities and our democracy.
