Rotten Dem Rep. Wilson Routinely Votes Against Our Wonderful Veterans, Military Families and VA
Just when you thought you knew how rotten Democrat Rep. Frederica Wilson is, new information surfaces to prove you wrong.
According to VoteSmart.org, “Wilson has frequently voted against measures intended to help veterans and their families.”
Fox News reports:
Wilson’s voting record on veterans issues may call into question the sincerity of her recent defense of U.S. service members and their families.
Despite Wilson’s claim to be “committed to honoring our service members, not only with words but with deeds,” she has voted against most bills ensuring continued funding for veteran benefits, including payments to widows of fallen soldiers, the vote-tracking site shows.
She has also opposed measures designed to improve the Department of Veterans Affairs.
In March 2013, Wilson opposed the “Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act,” which prevented a government shutdown and provided funds for the U.S. military and the VA.
The bill, which passed with bipartisan support and was signed into law by the Obama administration, provided funding to the military and the VA until the next government shutdown showdown.
Later in the year, Wilson again voted against a resolution aimed at ensuring benefits paid to the veterans and their families would not be affected by the government shutdown in October that year.
Democrat Congresswoman Rep. Frederica Wilson ripped General John Kelly for defending President Trump’s phone call to Gold Star widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson.
Following Kelly’s remarks, Wilson responded by saying to reporters, “John Kelly’s trying to keep his job. He will say anything.”
“John Kelly’s trying to keep his job. He will say anything,” says @RepWilson in response to Trump’s staff chief who ripped her for disclosing details of controversial call with soldier’s widow. “There were other people who heard what I heard,” tweeted Marc Caputo, citing a POLITICO article.

“Literally got this quote after a hearing, chaired by Wilson, into nursing home deaths. I handed her my phone with the story and this was her comment before getting into a car,” tweeted Caputo.
