INDIANAPOLIS (Monday, April 9, 2018) – Luke Messer today blasted Todd Rokita for his record of voting against President Trump’s agenda.
“Todd Rokita runs around the state wearing a MAGA hat but when President Trump needs his support on the tough votes, Todd Rokita votes No, No, No,” Messer said. “I support the President’s agenda, and I have the record to prove it.”
- Trump’s Budget Bill— President Trump said: “Republicans and Democrats must support our troops and support this Bill!” Rokita called it “a false choice.”
- Trump’s Funding Bill— President Trump said: “$1.6 Billion to start Wall on Southern Border, rest will be forthcoming. Most importantly, got $700 Billion to rebuild our Military, $716 Billion next year…most ever.” Rokita called it “the Washington swamp at its worst.”
- Trump’s Plan to Modernize Air Travel— Rokita is one of 3 Republicans holding upTrump’s airline reforms, and called the plan “fundamentally flawed.”
- Trump’s Counter Terrorism Legislation— President Trump said “We need it. Get smart!.” Rokita authored an amendment to gut it.
Todd Rokita was recently exposed for negative comments he made about Trump in 2016, calling him “vulgar, if not profane.”
