Republican congresswoman has flip-flopped big time

Martha McSally has done the opposite of what she promised in her 2012 campaigns.

The Martha McSally who ran for Congress in 2012 would not recognize herself today. Then, she was a retired Air Force Colonel mounting two unsuccessful House bids in Arizona, running as a post-partisan leader who would take the lead on immigration and deficit reduction. Then, she presented herself someone with “authenticity” who would not just repeat 15-second sound bites.

McSally won her seat in 2014 after promising to vote against her party more than 20 percent of the time but instead voted with Donald Trump 97.4 percent of the time.. She called the mounting national debt her “number one concern” and cited national security concerns like immigration and border security as one of the top three issues.

But she has since then reversed course on a number of policy issues and campaign promises. Today, McSally is a second-term Republican U.S. representative and senate candidate who has largely abandoned those 2012 values in favor of becoming a pro-Trump partisan.

ThinkProgress reviewed dozens of McSally’s radio interviews, television appearances, campaign speeches, and candidate debates from her 2012 campaigns and compared them with her record and rhetoric today. Though she frequently promised to lead, “knuckle down” and worry less about “the next election than the next generation,” on those issues, she has done little to keep her promises and has often completely flip-flopped.


So former Colonel from the Air Force, that swore to protect and defend the Constitution, has now sided with traitor.....................and she's collecting a pension from her gig in the air force..........................

So the solution is:

Kyrsten Sinema
