Joe Knollenberg Cares About People? Really?
Joe Knollenberg has a new commercial out featuring a Democratic woman and her daughter who has special needs. In the commercial the mother says, "Congressman Knollenberg cares about people." (I did a little editing) Really? then why did he vote against expanding the State Children's Health Insurance Program? Joe Knollenberg voted to uphold President Bush's veto of the SCHIP. If passed it would have covered an additional 100,000 in Michigan and 10 million children nationwide. Why did he vote against the new GI Bill that expanded benefits for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans. Click here for a prior post on Knollenberg's veterans' record. Exactly which people does Joe Knollenberg care about?
