Garrett votes against 9/11 Commission


Representative Scott Garrett voted against the implementation of the commonsense recommendations offered by the 9/11 Commission. This from the man who said the following on his campaign site:

My top priority since being sworn in as your Representative in Congress has been the safety and security of our nation. To this end, I have been a leading advocate for strengthening and improving our security, particularly here in New Jersey.

Yes, that's right, his "top priority." I would love to know how many people voted for him instead of Paul or me because they believed he'd do a better job on Homeland Security. This was his first test, and his credibility just went down the toilet. Votes speak louder than words, they always have. His next opponent won't even have to spin this or attempt to confuse the issue as is so often the case in the modern campaign.

The average voter:
"Mr. Garrett, did you really vote against the implementation of the 9/11 Commission recommendations?"

Rep. Garrett:
"Yes, but..."

The average voter in our district either knows someone, or someone who knows someone, who was directly impacted on 9/11. The average voter will stop listening at yes.
