Five Reasons to Vote Out Nebraska Rep Adrian Smith

Five Reasons to Vote Out Utah Rep Jason Chaffetz
1. Such Concern…such convenient concern.
- Sponsoring the bill “H.R. 4301: Restoration of America’s Wire Act" which would prohibit online gambling nationwide. While concern for gambling is the claim, the reality is that it’s likely the fact that Casino Mogul, Sheldon Adelson believes that online gambling hurts his business.
2. A well use of time and tax payer money?
- He’s sponsoring the bill “H.R. 2984: Bureau of Corrections Renaming Act of 2013.” A bill that’s sole purpose is to rename a government bureau.
3. He’s anti-American Worker

Five Reasons to Vote Out Arkansas Rep Eric “Rick” Crawford
1. He’s pro-hitting children with cars.

2. He hangs out with…well, the worst people.
- No, this one isn’t an overstatement. With love for both The Tea Party and Ted Cruz, it’s hard to take this guy seriously.
3. He’s a fan of flushing tax payer money down the drain.
- He started this year off with co-sponsoring, yet another, anti-Affordable Care Act “ObamaCare” bill. The HR 3811 - Health Exchange Security and Transparency Act of 2014, which I personally refer to as the “Scare tactic bill,” has a sole purpose of scaring anyone who signs up for the ACA. If and when your personal information gets stolen, they’ll let you know.
