Democrat Donnelly Votes With Ultra-Liberals Bernie Sanders & Elizabeth Warren

INDIANAPOLIS - When it's time to vote on a bill in the U.S. Senate, there is a lot of overlap in the voting records of Democrat Joe Donnelly and his ultra-liberal colleagues Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

That's because Democrat Donnelly votes with Bernie Sanders 77 percent of the time and with Elizabeth Warren 79 percent of the time. And it comes at the same time that both senators have donated thousands of dollars to Democrat Donnelly. (“CQ Vote Comparison Report,” CQ, Accessed 2/22/18)

Sanders, who is a self-proclaimed socialist, is a proponent of raising taxes and instituting a universal health care system. Meanwhile, Warren is a proponent of anti-2nd amendment gun control and burdensome environmental regulations. Democrat Joe Donnelly has a history of voting in lock-step with both Sanders and Warren on nearly eight of every 10 votes in the Senate. (Bernie Sanders website, accessed 7/3/2018) (Elizabeth Warren website, accessed 7/3/2018)
