“This is the SAME politician that tried to bring bloody Horse Slaughter to Montana…”
Ryan Zinke’s hypocrisy is being put on full display this week. Despite his previous support for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (the budgetary lifeblood for many of our public lands), he has refused to stand up against Trump’s attempts to gut the program!
And now Zinke is set to defend Trump’s budget cuts — in front of the Interior Subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee!
We need to take action, Friend. Will you send a tweet and tell senators to hold Ryan Zinke accountable for cutting funding for our public lands?
It’s hard to keep track of Zinke’s constant flip-flopping on this issue, so here’s a quick recap:
FIRST: As a congressman, Ryan Zinke showed his support for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) by voting to extend funding for the critical program.
THEN: Zinke became Secretary of the Interior and supported Trump’s proposed budget — despite the fact that it nearly zeroes out funding for the LWCF!
NOW: He’s set to defend Trump’s budget cuts to his own Interior Department!
We need to let Ryan Zinke know that his flip-flopping on funding our public lands is not ok!
