Sen. Mike Lee claims he “care[s] deeply about underserved” individuals, however his voting record proves otherwise
In an ad, Mike Lee claims “I care about solutions, I believe people are more important than politics and I care deeply about underserved and often overlooked individuals.” However, Lee’s record in the Senate proves otherwise; he has consistently voted for legislation that hurts “underserved and often overlooked individuals.”
- Lee voted for a law that restricts the rights of Asbestos victims; nearly one third of all mesothelioma cases in the US are veterans.
- Lee voted to dismantle health care coverage for people with pre-existing conditions in North Carolina through a loophole in a bill.
- Lee voted for a budget that failed to reinstate the Child and Dependent Tax Credit, which would have helped more than 200,000 families in North Carolina pay for child care.
- Instead of standing up for people impacted by the toxic GenX spill, Lee voted for a budget that gave Chemours lobbyists everything they wanted.
Despite Lee’s claims he cares about people who are underserved, his record proves he has failed people who are underserved time and time again. Mike Lee faces Democrat Harper Peterson in Senate District 9.
