Letter to the Editor: Not pleased with Nebraska vote on recent Omnibus Bill


Dear Editor,

It was quite disappointing to see all three Republican Nebraska Representatives (Adrian Smith, Jeff Fortenberry, and Lee Terry) and both Senators (Deb Fischer and Mike Johanns) side with President Obama, Joe Biden and Harry Reid to pass the Omnibus Bill last week and fund Obamacare and most of the other things Democrats want for most of another year.

Sixty-seven conservatives of the Republican House and 18 conservatives from the Senate voted against this bill. Yet all five of Nebraska’s senators/representatives voted with Harry Reid. Nebraska is one of the most conservative states in the nation. These five people did not represent Nebraska with their vote.

And if you look at the Heritage Foundation scorecard for each of these people, you will find they take the liberal side quite often. We need to remember this vote in the next election. 

Lauren Snell

North Platte, Neb.
