Peter Tedeschi criticizes Rep. Bill Keating for vote against defense, military spending bill one year ago today

PEMBROKE – One year ago today, on June 27, 2017, a vote was held in the U.S. House of Representatives on the Make America Secure Appropriations Act, 2018. Representative Bill Keating voted against the bill, which ultimately passed the House 235-192.

Among other provisions, the bill gave a 2.4% pay raise to our service men and women, gave necessary resources, equipment, and funding to our military to defeat ISIS, funded traumatic brain injury (TBI) research and sexual assault prevention, and provided resources to support our veterans and enact greater accountability and oversight over the VA.

“This is just another example of Congressman Keating voting against the interests of our military in the name of partisan politics,” says Peter Tedeschi. “I support legislation that keeps our country safe and provides the care to our veterans that they have earned through their service and sacrifice. If elected, I commit to putting their interests ahead of the interests of political insiders.”
