When our current Congressman voted YES to give $500 Million to Planned Parenthood in 2018, was that in support of YOUR principles or in support of HIS?

When he allowed KY to BORROW $5 Million to change the name of the Daniel Boone Parkway to his own name, was that for us or was that for him? Because our children — yours and mine — are paying for this extravagance.
“Former governor Paul E. Patton, to thank [our congressman] for removing the tolls on the highway, renamed the Daniel Boone Parkway to the Hal Rogers Parkway.

When he decided to BORROW $5 Million PER YEAR to send to Africa for a “save the cheetah” foundation where his daughter worked, was that for us or for him?
