Anchorage, Alaska. September 30, 2016 – Alaska Libertarian nominee Joe Miller blasted Lisa Murkowski on Friday for voting to fund the government again without any meaningful concessions from the Obama Administration.
“It’s dereliction of duty,” said Miller. “Thursday’s vote to give President Obama a blank check with no accountability is exactly why we need to replace incumbents like Lisa Murkowski. There is simply no pushback from our federal delegation. It’s really sad.”
Democrats and Republicans alike have corrupted the process and relinquished their Constitutional authority to the Executive Branch.
According to Conservative Review:
“This government funding bill funded all aspects of the federal government from October 1 through December 9, 2016. Absent from this budget bill was any sort of meaningful limitations on a single illegal, abusive, or harmful executive action taken by President Obama.
“In fact, this spending bill funded every major policy priority of the Obama administration.
“Absent from the bill were limitations or reforms to Obamacare, Planned Parenthood funding, Obama’s transgender bathroom mandate on the states, sanctuary cities, unconstitutional amnesty, or anything resembling a spending reduction or fiscal responsibility to address our $20 trillion debt.”
Miller concluded, “Murkowski can come home and talk about federal overreach all she wants, but it’s all meaningless drivel when she votes to fund every illegal and unconstitutional executive mandate perpetrated on the American people by this Administration. She has abandoned her oath of office.”
Joe Miller is a limited government Constitutionalist who believes government exists to protect our liberties, not to take them away. He supports free people, free markets, federalism, the Constitutional right to life, the 2nd Amendment, religious liberty, American sovereignty, and a strong national defense.
