Get the “f*#@ing thing” done.
That was Martha McSally’s directive to Congressional Republicans debating whether to take health care away from millions of Americans. More uninsured people, higher premiums, and fewer protections. That’s McSally’s health care vision.
It turns out that destroying health care wasn’t a popular message in 2018, and Martha McSally was defeated by now Senator Kyrsten Sinema. But second place was apparently enough to get appointed to the seat vacated by the death of the late Senator John McCain.
Notorious for running away from debates and tough questions, Arizona’s second place Senator now has two years to slavishly do Trump’s bidding, and she’s on top of it. She votes with Trump 97% of the time.
Despite declining border crossings, greater vulnerabilities at ports of entry, and strong cross-border ties between Arizona and Mexico, McSally voted for the sham border wall national emergency, endangering emergency preparedness and emboldening a president with dangerously authoritarian instincts.
Earning a lifetime score of 6% from the League of Conservation Voters, McSally hasn’t seen a corporate sell out of clean air, clean water, and public lands that she doesn’t like. When the Arizona Republic asked her about climate change, she used the opportunity to bash moderate clean power protocols established under President Obama.
She voted for the GOP tax scam, voted to repeal overtime protections for millions of workers, voted to weaken drinking water standards, and voted to repeal protections put in place to stop the kind of Wall Street speculation that led to the Great Recession. That means she’ll have no trouble raising money to defend the seat gifted to her.
Flip the West is excited to do our part to send McSally off into the sunset - again. We have a network of volunteers ready to turn Arizona blue.
