McAleer says Bishop not standing up for Utahns

<strong>LOGAN—</strong> First district Congressman Rob Bishop is not standing up for hard working Utahns. At least that’s the opinion of the Republican’s Democratic challenger, Donna McAleer.  

In Logan last week McAleer, a graduate of West Point and an Army Veteran, said Bishop voted twice to end Medicare as it is known, which would leave Utah’s seniors on their own. She said Bishop also voted against helping those who defend their country when he voted against the Veterans Jobs Bill.

“While we have unemployment issues throughout the state and throughout the country, this was a wonderful opportunity to help those who have served and defended our nation get back to work in kind of a temporary conservation corps, as well as with local fire departments and police departments,” McAleer said. “This was rejected in a filibuster, and unfortunately the Utah delegation was on the front of that.”

McAleer said 1 percent of the population should not have to pay 100 percent of the cost of war.
