Benishek Votes To Defund American Conflict In Libya


Date: June 24, 2011
Location: Washington, DC
Issues: Foreign Aid

Congressman Dan Benishek (MI-01) today released the following statement:

"I voted for this bill to send a signal to this Administration that Congress is serious about ending the President's war in Libya.

It is my belief that the majority of the people I represent in Northern Michigan do not want America involved in the civil wars of other countries, especially when our vital interests are not threatened.

I hope to continue working with my colleagues--on a bipartisan basis--to see U.S. military action ends in a prompt and responsible manner."
