re: Mike Pence's record
Tonight, Tim Kaine will go head-to-head with Mike Pence. Let Tim know you have his back when he takes the stage by pitching in today:
Compared to his running mate, and the offensive and outrageous nonsense he spews nearly every single day, Mike Pence might seem like a relatively reasonable guy. Personally, I think he could very well be the scarier of the duo.
Because where Donald Trump has bluster, Mike Pence has a record.
During his first run for Congress, Pence wrote on his campaign website that "smoking doesn't kill." He spent his last five years in the House leading the charge to defund Planned Parenthood -- even encouraging a federal government shutdown. He voted against raising the minimum wage, against Wall Street reform, and against cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
He's so opposed to Obamacare that when the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act in 2012, he compared the decision to 9/11.
More recently, he's probably best known for the so-called "religious freedom" bill that legalized anti-LGBT discrimination -- and cost his state $60 million. He also signed some of the toughest abortion restrictions in the country into law.
If Mike Pence is the policy-focused half of the Republican ticket, then we need to make sure we never see Trump and Pence in the White House with a Republican Congress to do their bidding.
Before Pence takes the stage tonight for his only debate against Tim Kaine, pitch in $3 or more.
