Hanna Declares Need for Science and Math Education Funding He Voted to Cut
August 9th 2012 · 1 Comment
Binghamton, NY – Congressman Richard Hanna this week declared the need for more investment in Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) education. The problem: on February 19, 2011, Hanna voted for H.R. 1, which cut funding for STEM education by $180 million.
“Someone should tell Congressman Hanna that his votes are actually recorded,” said Dan Lamb Campaign Manager Mike Morosi. “Voting to cut funding for STEM education, and then holding press conferences on the need to increase funding for STEM education is bizarre. The fact is, Richard Hanna has never been held accountable for his record, and now he believes he can tell New Yorker’s one thing, and then do the exact opposite in Washington. This is part of a pattern of dishonesty, and the Congressman has never once been asked about the obvious differences between his record and rhetoric. It is an affront to the relationship of trust constituents deserve to have from their Congressman and more and more voters are picking up on it. Chalk another one up for the do one thing say another congressman.”
