Why Aren’t the Candidates Talking About Votes?

 Posted:  August 30, 2014

We follow the election campaign on a daily basis. We look for who says what, who does what, who charges what, who runs what ads, what the Albuquerque Journal says and doesn’t say.

Voters send men and women to Congress and those elected represent us. They vote for a lot of legislation and those laws affect some of us some of the time, none of us some of the time, all of us all of the time – you get the idea.

At DoesTomUdallRepresentYou.com we took the time to study some of the more important pieces of legislation Tom Udall has voted on. We have evaluated the effects of those votes and have included linked articles that explore the fallout from those votes.

Why is it that Tom Udall doesn’t talk about his votes on SPECIFIC pieces of legislation and why isn’t he challenged on those votes by his opponent? All we get are feel good ads that call for support because of biographical information by both candidates.

Why isn’t the staff of five or six political writers on the Albuquerque Journal staff making a checklist like we have on this Website so voters have some idea what Tom Udall has done in the last fifteen years in Congress?

Go to the Benchmark Votes section of this Website (linked below), under the About Tom Udall menu category.

We have listed twenty or so of votes he has made in the last few years and in the old days when he was in the House of Representatives.

We have studied the history of a candidate for U.S. Senate and we have made it easy for you to do the same.

Do you want to be sure the candidate you vote for actually represents you, or do you just ASSUME that he or she does and vote for the “D” or “R” because you always do it that way?

If that is the case, please stay home and don’t vote. If you don’t have a position on issues or don’t understand who you are voting for and why, backed by facts, you are just another deadhead.
