US House Races 2016 : Know The Animal Rights Record Of Each Congressperson

Please vote animal abusers out of the House and Senate
Hillary Clinton has argued for the bombing of many people and animals. However
on the congressional level, it appears that the Republican Party is the party of animal cruelty and animal slaughter.

Please vote out Don Young, Steve King, and any congressperson with a less than 67% vote for the animals, any congressperson who voted money for immoral illegal wars, or who voted to destroy the environment.

The number after each congressperson is the % of times that person voted for animal protection or rights. For more detail go to
