Votes against Key Domestic Priorities for North Carolinians
Last night North Carolina Senator Elizabeth Dole voted to slash billions for vital domestic priorities in the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services and Education spending bill. Dole voted for a motion that would have cut $9 billion from the appropriations bill that funds research on cancer, diabetes, and heart disease as well as programs such as Head Start, Pell Grants and the Children’s Health Insurance Program.
“Elizabeth Dole is willing to give George Bush a blank check to spend billions of dollars in Iraq, but refuses to meet our commitments to provide quality healthcare and education here at home,” DSCC spokesman Matthew Miller said. “With this vote, Dole proved once again that her misplaced priorities are out of step with North Carolinians.”
