Rehberg Embarks on "Save My Own Job" Tour

Montanans ask what the Congressman has done to help create new jobs

This week, Rep. Dennis Rehberg is traveling the state of Montana visiting construction projects where new jobs were created through legislation Rehberg voted against. The same projects Rehberg claimed in an editorial board meeting Tuesday, "had merit."

Rehberg suggests tax relief as a solution in today's Billings Gazette, he fails to acknowledge that he voted against the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 which did just that. In fact, a full third of the Recovery Act focused on tax relief.

As part of his "Save My Own Job" tour, Rehberg stopped by the Northern Hotel in Billings. After voting against funding that supported jobs at the hotel site, he offered to help by "promising to have a staffer look for grant options and Department of Energy assistance."

Rehberg Votes Against Estate Tax Relief and Legislation to Limit Government Spending

Statement from Montana Democratic Spokeswoman Kate Downen Regarding Dennis Rehberg’s Vote Today Against Estate Tax Relief and Legislation to Limit Government Spending

(Helena) – Today Rep. Dennis Rehberg voted against providing permanent estate tax relief to Montana family farmers and ranchers, and voted against tough new pay-as-you-go legislation (PAYGO) to limit government spending. Below are statements from Montana Democratic Party Spokeswoman Kate Downen on each issue.

 Statement regarding estate tax relief:

 “Dennis Rehberg proved today that Montana farmers and ranchers don’t have an advocate in the U.S. House. He voted against estate tax relief and stability for family farms and ranchers, burying his head in the sand when Montanans need his leadership the most.”

 Statement regarding PAYGO:

 “Rep. Rehberg’s vote today against limiting new spending shows a lack of leadership and common sense. He comes back to Montana and talks a big game about being a fiscal conservative, but he sure doesn’t act like one in Washington.”

Rehberg votes in favor of pricey planes for congressmen

HELENA - Rep. Denny Rehberg, R-Mont., voted several times in favor of buying elite Air Force jets to fly lawmakers around, but said this week he never supported the purchases and applauds a recent move to strip the spending from the military budget.
 
CLICK HERE for the full story.
 
The planes fanned controversy this week after the Wall Street Journal reported they had been inserted into a larger military spending bill against the wishes of the Pentagon. The House removed the jet money late Monday.
Jed Link, a Rehberg spokesman, said the congressman cast his vote for a broader military spending bill, which included money for American troops, and did not necessarily support money for the jets.
 
"While Denny joined a broad, bipartisan majority in supporting funds for or men and women in uniform, he opposes funding for the purchases of these additional jets," Link said in a statement.

MT Democratic Party Files Complaint Against Sen. Ed Walker for Accepting Illegal Exxon Campaign Cash

Billings Senator forgot to mention illegal contributions from Exxon in recent defense of their actions 

Helena, MT -- The Montana Democratic Party today filed a complaint with the Commissioner of Political Practices regarding Sen. Ed Walker’s (R-Billings) acceptance of illegal campaign contributions from Exxon Mobil.

“It is completely irresponsible for Sen. Walker to defend Exxon’s handling of the spill when he’s taken their campaign cash,” said Ted Dick, Executive Director of the Montana Democratic Party.  “Sen. Walker should be working together to hold Big Oil accountable and protect the Yellowstone, but there are some clear reasons why he’s not willing.” 

According to the complaint, “Section 13-35-227 MCA prohibits corporations from making a contribution or an expenditure that supports or opposes a candidate. The same section also prohibits a person, candidate or political committee from accepting such corporate contribution.”
