To the Editor:
President Donald Trump’s nomination of a well-qualified Supreme Court Justice provides an excellent opportunity for Sen. Claire McCaskill to demonstrate whose side she is on: the Missourians who voted for the Trump agenda by a margin of 19 percent, or the Hollywood Elites who filled her coffers at their Beverly Hills fundraiser in May.
Sen. McCaskill boasts of her “listening” to her constituents at numerous town halls throughout the state, but sadly that’s where it ends. She consistently votes with the east and west coast elitists who are funding her campaign. Her record coincides with that of ultra-liberal Elizabeth Warren 88 percent of the time. Among her numerous “nay” votes were Neil Gorsuch to be Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
The old adage “Actions speak louder than words” has never been more true. I urge Missourians to pay attention to how McCaskill actually votes when it’s our turn to vote in November.
