All the legislators were home for the election, so this week’s MoCTrack is dense with quotes from our Senators. We have both of their thoughts on the departure of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Senator Casey shared some thought after his re-election, along with his disapproval of the executive order changing rules for asylum seekers. Senator Toomey expressed that he thinks the Mueller investigation should finish up soon. We close this week’s report with a look at a 1784 bill that set the groundwork for a government agency to help veterans, the ancestor of today’s Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
Our senators had a lot to say this week. Make sure you know where they stand, because they work for you – read MoCTrack!
They Work for You - Click here for the week ending November 4, 2018 report Welcome to the last Member of Congress Tracking Report before Election Day. MoCTrack compiles coverage on Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey – all their tweets, traditional press coverage, votes and Congressional action – so you can find it all in one convenient report.
With the Senate home for campaigning action, this week’s report focuses primarily on what our Senators have been saying. Senator Toomey has been keeping a low profile, with most of his attention divided between complaints about the Renewable Fuel Standard and responses to the tragedy in Pittsburgh. By contrast, since he is up for re-election, Senator Casey has been all over the news on a variety of topics. Most important amidst the Casey coverage, we have a full copy of his recent Op-Ed in Medium, with his thoughts on the Tree of Life synagogue murders, the atmosphere of hate, and gun control. It is more than worth a read before you go to the polls!
We also have a special section on your rights as a voter and links to important resources in case you need assistance on Election Day with issues involving voter intimidation or suppression. Your first civic duty is to VOTE! And you can prepare for that by knowing what your elected officials have been doing on your behalf – because they work for you. Read MoCTrack!
