Voting Records of Three GOP 'Right to Life' Hypocrites

They all voted NO on the SCHIP bill to cover the health insurance of some of the nation's poorest children. They all voted YES to each Bush War Supplemental Spending bills. They all scored 100% from the National Right to Life Committee.

Steve Chabot, OH District 1
John Peterson, PA District 5
Scott Garrett, NJ District 5

The following are the ratings from various groups which keep track of congressional votes and lobby the members for their issues. The data comes from Project Vote Smart.

All three, by the way, voted to extended the Bush tax cuts.

Not surprisingly, they scored only 6% from the Public Citizens Congress Watch to represent consumer interests in Congress, the executive branch and the courts."

Again, each man scored zero from the Americans United for the Separation of Church and State. Apparently they don't like that 1st Amendment.

They each scored zero from the Human Rights Campaign, a bipartisan organization that works to advance equality based on sexual orientation and gender expression and identity.

The National Education Association was not high on their agenda, the best scoring 35%.

The League of Conservation Voters, working to protect the environment, scored them in the 30's down to zero.

These three men received dismal scores, 20%, from the Children's Defense Fund which pays particular attention to the needs of poor and minority children and those with disabilities.

Citizens for Global Solutions envisions a future in which nations work together to abolish war, protect our rights and freedoms, and solve the problems facing humanity that no nation can solve alone. These three men were rated zero.

The American Public Health Association, concerned with a broad set of issues affecting personal and environmental health, including federal and state funding for health programs, pollution control, programs and policies related to chronic and infectious diseases, a smoke-free society, and professional education in public health, rated these men no higher than 20%.

The American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees rank these men zero.

A group that hopes to find cures for Parkinson's Disease, Parkinson's Action Network, rate each man zero.

Senior Citizens rank poorly as the Alliance for Retired Americans,to ensure social and economic justice and full civil rights for all citizens so that they may enjoy lives of dignity, personal and family fulfillment and security, rate these men 10%.

The U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce, creating economic and leadership opportunities for women by building a strong community voice and providing programs and benefits to support the growth of our women across America rate each man 0%.

It seems obvious that these men care little about the American citizen after the 9 months in the womb. When the baby is born, these three men slap it on the rear and say, "Good luck kid!"
