Patty Murray Lies About Impact of Dobbs Decision on Washington and Shows Her Extreme Position on Abortion
PASCO, WA – Veterans advocate and U.S. Senate candidate Tiffany Smiley (R-WA) issued the following statement in response to Sen. Patty Murray’s (D-WA) newly released ads in the wake of yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling on Dobbs v Jackson.
Tiffany Smiley said: “Without skipping a beat Patty Murray released two ads misrepresenting the impact of the Supreme Court ruling on Washingtonians. She said she doesn’t want to let the Supreme Court have the final word, but Friday’s decision gives the PEOPLE the final word, not unelected judges. Not only that, when Patty Murray says she wants to secure reproductive freedom for every American what she means is that she wants abortion available on demand up to the point of birth - a radical position supported by less that 20% of Americans. There is only one ‘extreme politician’ in this race and her name is ‘Patty Murray’.”
The reality is, Senator Murray resorts to misleading scare tactics to distract from the fact that after 30 years in the Senate her constituents are no better off under her leadership. In Patty Murray’s Washington:
The average cost of a gallon of gas currently stands at $5.50. Just one year ago, the cost of a gallon of gas was just $3.69 – a nearly 50% increase. Despite these skyrocketing costs, Senator Murray continues to oppose an all-of-the-above energy strategy that would return our nation to energy independence.
Washington is one of 10 states to have a 90% out-of-stock rate for baby formula – a crisis that Senator Murray could have averted had she taken action during the 15 months she was aware of problems at the Abbott formula manufacturing facility.
Washington currently has the 4th highest rate of veterans’ homelessness in the country and homeless encampments have taken over parks, government property, and even elementary school grounds across Washington. Not only hasn’t Senator Murray worked to find a solution to this problem, she hasn’t even visited a homeless encampment to see the human tragedy for herself.
Washington is facing a public safety emergency. In Seattle, the police force has lost hundreds of officers in just the past two years, in large part due to low morale. During this same period, violent crime has escalated and lawlessness dominated our streets as autonomous zones were established. The voters of Seattle spoke loudly last November when they elected a Republican City Attorney for the first time since 1989, yet Senator Murray continues to coddle the Defund the Police crowd.
With all these problems and 30 years of failing to deliver solutions, it is no surprise the “mom in tennis shoes” is resorting to misleading ads and scare tactics to keep her floundering campaign afloat.
