Petition to Tell Jared Golden:
“Stop Wasting Our Money! No Welfare for Politicians!
WHEREAS, Congressman Jared Golden is spending taxpayer money in an election year on social media ads to get more Facebook “likes;”
WHEREAS, Congressman Jared Golden wants to create a National “Welfare for Politicians” Program, funneling millions in taxpayer money into his own campaign coffers to buy yard signs, junk mail and robocalls;
WHEREAS, a similar Welfare for Politicians program on the state level has already wasted over $40 million in Maine taxpayer dollars, empowered party bosses to control elected legislators, and reduced transparency over donations by special interests — all while diverting funds away from programs for our most vulnerable;
THEREFORE, we the undersigned call on Congressman Jared Golden to STOP STEALING OUR TAX DOLLARS TO BUY FACEBOOK “LIKES;”
THEREFORE, we the undersigned call on Congressman Jared Golden to STOP SUPPORTING THE CREATION OF A NATIONAL WELFARE FOR POLITICIANS PROGRAM.
