As the race for North Carolina’s open U.S. Senate seat begins to heat up, now is a good time to remember what Republican candidate Ted Budd has, and more often has not done for North Carolinians.
Recently, Budd co-sponsored the U.S. House version of Sen. Lindsey Graham’s poorly thought out national abortion ban and refused to directly answer whether or not he would accept this year’s election results; a question Budd was rightfully asked, considering Budd refused to certify the 2020 Presidential election results.
Budd’s voting history certainly doesn’t do him, or frankly a single North Carolinian, any favors either; Budd voted against funding for child abuse prevention services, as well as a bill to address the infant formula shortage, and initially voted against a bill to expand health care and benefits for veterans.
From INDY Week:
Budd has consistently taken money from big banks, and then voted to allow banks to charge customers high fees and stymied efforts to lower costs for regular working people.
Budd voted against legislation in July that would lower gas prices and protect consumers from price gouging by big oil companies. A day before, he had taken $5,000, the legal maximum campaign contribution, from big oil PAC Continental Resources Inc.
If elected to the U.S. Senate, Ted Budd will keep doing what he’s always done: vote against the interests of regular working people in North Carolina while voting in favor of anything that will keep him personally wealthy.
