HOW MCMORRIS RESPONDS TO HIGH ENERGY PRICES
  • Rep. McMorris voted against cracking down on the oil and gas industries price gouging.
  • Rep. McMorris voted for the GOP energy bill that gave billions to oil, gas and nuclear industries.
  • Big oil and gas industries have given Rep. McMorris $49,952. Any surprise?

GOP "HEALTH CARE"
  • Big drug interests have given $16,886 to McMorris over the Representative's career. They know who their friends are.

TIES WITH THE GOP LEADERSHIP

  • McMorris voted with President Bush 89% of the time.

TIES WITH TOM DELAY AND JACK ABRAMOFF
McMorris has taken:
  • $5,000 from Tom DeLay's ARMPAC.
  • $2,500 from Bob Ney, the first congressman to plead guilty in the Jack Abramoff investigation.
With all of these ties to the DeLay/Abramoff mess, is it any surprise that McMorris has:

McMorris has taken:
  • $1,000 from "Duke's" PAC.

SUPPORTING OUR TROOPS
  • Rep. McMorris opposed expanding access to the military's TRICARE health insurance program to thousands of Reservist and National Guard members, even though 20 percent of all Reservists do not have health insurance, and 40 percent of Reservists aged 19 to 35 lack health coverage.

THE ENVIRONMENT
  • 1,861 water systems in 29 states have been contaminated with MTBE, exposing as many as 45 million Americans to this potential carcinogen, but Rep. McMorris voted to protect the companies responsible from lawsuits by communities that need their help to clean up these systems.
  • Rep. McMorris voted against bipartisan reform of the Endangered Species Act.
  • Rep. McMorris voted for a massive sell off of public lands to mining interests.
