Congressman Edwards Voting Record. Does it adhere to Constitutional Authority? You decide.

Updated: Jul 1


ATPAC's mission to determine the best possible candidates to serve WE THE PEOPLE is to scrutinize voting records of the candidates and ascertain whether or not the laws they enact adhere to constitutional authority. 

 

We hope that Congressman Edwards comes to the February 3rd event at A B Tech to defend his 70% conservative voting record from Heritage Action for America's scorecard (which is below the abysmal 79% average Republican score.) govtrack.us gives Edwards a purple score with the assessment "Consistently votes with Democrats on legislation that became law."

 

We are sure he had his reasons for voting for these bills 

 

 As citizens of NC11, we surely do deserve an explanation because our elected officials are supposed to serve their constituents. As engaged citizens, WE then have a moral and ethical obligation and a civic duty to thoughtfully decide which of the candidates would best preserve the principles and values in our Constitition and to best represent the citizens of NC11.

 

It is only in the primary that we have this opportunity to scrutinize the candidates. After the primary, we have no choice with the candidate in the general election.

 

Remember, our Founders in their infinite wisdom to divide government, gave us the gift to elect our U.S. House every two years.

 

Let the PEOPLE decide what's best for our nation and for NC11.



  • Edwards doesn't seem to know that government shutdowns don't affect Social Security payments (his excuse for voting to raise the debt ceiling). During a recent phone Town Hall meeting he stated that if we closed down the government, Social Security would be put in jeopardy. A government shutdown has had no effect on social security distribution (at least it didn't the last time it happened.) It has been a matter of law since the 1990's.

 

Hard working taxpayers have consistently called for dollar-for-dollar cuts and reforms along with any debt ceiling increases. This bill does not do that. This bill suspends the debt ceiling until 2025, enabling Biden and a divided Congress to generate an estimated $4 trillion in new federal debt.

This comes after years of FBI SWAT Team raids on over 1,000 Trump supporters who attended the Jan. 6, 2021 protests at the US Capitol.

 

At least 80% of these FBI investigations, stalking, plotting, and arrests were for non-violent crimes like standing outside the US Capitol that day.

 

Don't forget the FBI has targeted Catholics, Christians, parents at school board meetings, journalists, and President Trump. (https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2023/11/they-hate-you-70-house-republicans-vote-reward/)



  • On, December 14th, 2023, the 11th District Congressman, Chuck Edwards, "sold out the American people again by voting for a woke and weaponized National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and the reauthorization of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). As has been his pattern with other key votes, Rep. Edwards joined with other weak Republicans and Democrats. The Bill provides for transgender surgeries, drag queen shows on military bases and ships, continues Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) policies and indoctrination, continues Biden's Green Energy push within the military, and continues race-based admissions at military academies. Edwards' vote also continues taxpayer abortion travel funding for service members who are stationed in states that restrict abortions.  Heritage Action, a subsidiary of the Heritage Foundation, called for a No Vote on NDAA and will record it as a Key Vote on their legislative scorecard. NDAAs passage will continue to degrade the military's war fighting capability and will exacerbate its recruiting shortfalls.  


Lastly, Edwards' vote to reauthorize FISA leaves the door wide open for continued weaponization by the Department of Justice to illegally spy on American citizens (300,000 times) and thereby violate their 4th Amendment rights granted by the U.S. Constitution. Chuck Edwards would have us believe that he is a MAGA conservative when in reality he has shown himself to be a loyal member of the Washington Uniparty Establishment Swamp."



Paid for by Asheville Tea PAC and not by any candidate or candidates’ committee.
