Congressman Poliquin stands up for Maine’s families and job creators and opposes massive, unfair and bureaucratic trade deals—like the TPP—that are harmful to Maine.
Congressman Poliquin bucked the Republican establishment and voted, twice, against granting President Obama “fast-track” trade authority.
The Congressman also defied the powerful Washington establishment and lobbying interests and firmly opposes the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) international trade agreement, a massive trade deal brokered behind closed doors by Washington political elites.
“I don’t work for the Republican Party and I certainly don’t work for Washington lobbyists,”said Congressman Poliquin. “I work for the families of our 2nd District.
“We need fair trade, not enormous, secret trade deals that hurt Maine workers, job creators and families. That is why I stand with Maine’s families, voting twice against granting the President ‘fast-track’ and opposing the TPP.”
OAKLAND – Last December, Congressman Bruce Poliquin voted in support of the omnibus funding bill, which included the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act.
When the Omnibus passed Congressman Poliquin specifically and publicly noted that one of the reasons he supported the funding bill was the inclusion of this program.
However, extreme Emily Cain continues to mislead Mainers on Congressman Poliquin’s voting record.
This bill included funding for a new DDG-51 destroyer for Bath Iron Works, extended the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, and a five-year extension of the 9/11 Victim’s Compensation Fund.
Congressman Poliquin’s support for the omnibus funding bill helps ensure that all 9/11 first-responders, such as firefighters, will receive the healthcare they greatly deserve.
