Troubling votes by Bergman
U.S. Rep. Jack Bergman wants to make sure pregnant women don’t get treated fairly. How do we know that? Bergman voted against the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act on Sept. 17.
Asians don’t get off any better. On the same day, Bergman voted against a resolution (H. Res 908) that condemned all forms of anti-Asian sentiment as related to COVID-19.
Persons of different races, color or national origin get no better treatment. The day before, Jack voted against the Equity and Inclusion Enforcement Act, which authorized private civil causes of action where there is discrimination on the ground of race, color or national origin in programs or activities receiving federal financial assistance.
Finally, on Sept. 15, Bergman voted against the Strength in Diversity Act that would help to improve and reduce or eliminate racial or socioeconomic isolation in educational facilities. (Source: bergman.house.gov/voterecord)
If you’re a pregnant worker, an Asian, a person of different race, color or national origin or a person subject to racial or socioeconomic isolation (like being poor), Rep. Bergman voted against you. Jack can say what he wants on TV, but his voting record tell the truth about his feelings about his constituents.
