"DC JOHN" PLUMB PUTS NEW YORK SECOND BEHIND WASHINGTON

John Plumb upon signing his mortgage affirmed that his home in Lakewood is his secondary residence. The document also affirmed that the home is only to be used as his secondary residence, not his primary residence which was listed as Washington, D.C. Supporting documents are public record and are available through the Chautauqua County Clerks Office.

“DC John legally affirmed that his home in Western New York is simply a secondary home,” said Hasenberg. “The law, nor John Plumb believes that New York is his real home. He has been back in the district for one year to date and all he wants is for us to send him back. It isn’t fair that DC John wants to sacrifice the needs of New York families simply to further his career.”

REED STANDS WITH VOTERS; REJECTS HILLARY/PLUMB POLICIES

“Hillary Clinton, like John Plumb, Tom’s opponent, is a relic of Obama’s failed foreign policy,” said Tom Reed for Congress Spokeswoman Amy Hasenberg. “Both Clinton and Plumb worked in the White House helping President Obama create foreign policy that has weakened our national security, in so doing they carelessly disregarded the needs of the American people. It’s no wonder that John Plumb has endorsed Hillary Clinton, after all they worked together under Obama and they’re fighting to continue his dangerous policies. We need to go a different direction that will make our nation and our allies more secure, not less."

TOM REED CRITICIZES OBAMA FOR, AGAIN, DECREASING IRANIAN SANCTIONS

Tom Reed opposed the Iran Nuclear Agreement from the start because it endangered the American people and our allies. Iran has already violated this agreement by launching ballistic missiles, yet President Obama is working to increase sanctions relief for Iran according to a report by Associated Press.

“The authors of the Iran Nuclear Deal clearly do not understand the dangers of a nuclear Iran and now President Obama is exacerbating the worst aspects of this deal,” said Tom Reed for Congress Spokeswoman Amy Hasenberg. “John Plumb, Tom's opponent, was part of the foreign policy arm of the Obama Administration which helped write this failed agreement. Not only is this unfair, it is dangerous. The Southern Tier, Finger Lakes, and Western New York deserve someone better than John Plumb.”

Supreme Court Ruling

The Supreme Court issued a ruling upholding a portion of the Affordable Care Act relative to state and federal exchanges.

I have voted repeatedly to repeal this law because it does nothing to control health care costs or preserve patient centered decisions. One of the reasons I ran for Congress in the first place was because of the impact of this law on our families and businesses.

I will continue fighting to repeal this broken law and replace it with legislation that actually lowers the cost of healthcare and that empowers you and your doctors, not unelected government bureaucrats, to make decisions about your healthcare.
