DesJarlais Campaign Launches Radio Ad

News release from U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais:
Jasper, TN – Today, Dr. Scott DesJarlais’ campaign launched a district-wide radio ad buy highlighting his conservative record, including votes to repeal Obamacare and his work to reduce spending and our national debt.
“When elected, I promised to put Tennesseans first and stick to my common-sense, conservative principles. I’ve faced plenty of pressure to compromise, but I’ve never wavered from my commitment. I’m proud to have kept my promises in voting to repeal Obamacare and to fight against higher spending and more job-crushing debt,” said DesJarlais.
In July, Congressman DesJarlais was one of only 9 Republican votes against the “Cut, Cap, and Balance Act.” Though DesJarlais supports many of the components contained in the bill, he ultimately voted against the plan because it included a provision to give President Obama a $2.4 trillion increase in the debt ceiling. (Roll Call Vote 606, 7/19/11)
Also in July, DesJarlais was one of just 22 Republicans to vote against the Budget Control Act of 2011, which raised the debt ceiling by $2.4 trillion dollars and established the failed Debt Super Committee. (Roll Call Vote 677, 7/29/11)
In December of this year, Congressman DesJarlais again voted against the majority of his party when he voted against the “Omnibus Appropriations Bill” because of the high spending levels. (Roll Call Vote 941, 12/16/11)
Congressman DesJarlais also voted to repeal Obamacare, for the Ryan Budget, and for a Balance Budget Amendment to the Constitution. (Roll Call Vote 14, 1/19/11; Roll Vote 277, 4/15/11; Roll Call Vote 858, 11/18/11)
“Sticking to my conservative principles hasn’t made me popular with the Washington special interests and the Democratic Party. But I’m prepared to defend my independent record of making tough choices, especially when it comes to cutting spending,” continued DesJarlais.
