Joe Knollenberg: On The Extreme Edge of the Far Right Wing

Recognizing that the 9th Congressional District consists of generally moderate voters (i.e., voters who are fiscally conservative, but socially either liberal or libertarian by nature), Joe Knollenberg is now trying to rewrite history to portray himself as a "moderate".

Tsk. Tsk. Joe.

We have been watching you for years. This blog may be relatively new, but Knollenberg has a voting record dating back 14 years that prove that Knollenberg votes with the extreme right wing faction of the Republican Party.

In light of the recent article in the Congressional Quarterly where Knollenberg acknowledges that he will have to move to the center in order to be re-elected in 2008, we thought it would be appropriate to review again just how extreme Joe Knollenberg has been in Congress.

We'll be covering the following topics in more detail in coming posts:

Joe Knollenberg OPPOSES:

  • Joe Knollenberg opposes any timelines for bringing troops home from Iraq.
  • Joe Knollenberg opposes tax and trade policies that would protect our jobs.
  • Joe Knollenberg opposes laws to protect Clean Water and Clean Air.
  • Joe Knollenberg is opposed to embryonic stem cell research.
  • Joe Knollenberg is opposed to a national healthcare program.

Joe Knollenberg SUPPORTS:

  • Joe Knollenberg supports privatizing Social Security.
  • Joe Knollenberg supports tax and trade policies that oursource our jobs.
  • Joe Knollenberg supports tax and trade policies that hurt middle-class families.

Joe Knollenberg is Too Extreme for Oakland County.
