Combat Veterans For Congress-----Embedded Integrity

The Combat Veterans For Congress PAC is endorsing Hon David H. McCormick, USMA '87, Cpt-USA, PhD as the 153rd Combat Veteran For Congress in the past fourteen years.  Former Captain McCormick resides in Pittsburg, PA; he completed 4 years and 8 months of active duty in the US Army, which included one combat deployment.  Dave McCormick is running for United States Senator to represent Pennsylvania in the US Senate.  He understands issues facing members of the US Armed Forces, will always support military personnel, and will ensure that they are cared for while serving their country on active duty, as reservists, and in their retirement as Veterans. 


Dave McCormick strongly supports The Free Enterprise System, considers the Radical Socialist Democrat Party’s agenda a threat to the founding principles of the Republic, and will work to stop the out-of-control spending by irresponsible Socialist Democrat members in the Senate who have fueled the 18 % inflation in America today; it is the worst inflation Americans have faced in 50 years.  He is a fiscally conservative candidate who will work to reduce the national debt, support economic growth, and will work toward unleashing the private sector to grow, create jobs, and stimulate private sector business investment.  


Dave will work to close the wide-open northern and southern borders, to prevent the entry of Chinese Communist fentanyl that is killing over 100,000 young Americans annually, and other drugs that are being trafficked.  He will support the US Border Patrol Agents to prevent the entry of MS-13 gang members, Radical Islamic Hamas and Al Qaeda Terrorists, Communist Chinese military personnel, Iranian Islamic Terrorists, human traffickers, and the over 350,000 Illegal Aliens invading the United States each month who are arriving from 180 countries.


Dave McCormick will work to put a stop to the to the war on US Energy, will support the United States to become Energy Independent once again, by supporting the drilling for crude oil on US government land and in Anwar once again.  He will support those policies to lower the cost of energy for families who are struggling to pay for the ever-increasing cost of gas at the pump and the cost of heating their homes in the cold winters.  

Dave will protect and defend the U S Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and will protect the unalienable rights of Americans as outlined in The Bill of Rights, their Freedom of Religion, their Freedom of Speech, their Freedom of the Press, and the right of Americans to Keep and Bear Arms.  He is an avid supporter of Law Enforcement.  Dave will defend traditional Family Values and will provide “true” representation for the average American voter in Pennsylvania and in the Republic. 

Dave McCormick is running against three term US Senator Bob Casey whose radical leftist policies are in support of the Biden administration leftist policies that have been destructive for the past three years.  Casey supports men competing with girls and women in female sports programs that allows men to have access and the use of women locker rooms and showers.  Casey supports the abortion of babies up to nine months, does not support protecting the lives of babies born alive, and does not support the mandate that doctors provide care for surviving babies of abortion.  Casey refused to support repealing of the Pistol Brace Ban, which is in violation of the 2nd Amendment. 


Casey voted for the funding of 87,000 armed newly hired IRS Agents who will threaten the average American taxpayer (he and his fellow Socialist Democrats should have instead supported the funding of 87,000 new Border Patrol Agents who are desperately needed on the “wide-open” southern border).  Casey is against the drilling and recovery of crude oil on government land which would lower the price of gas at the pump for all Americans suffering from the worst inflation in 50 years.  The cost of gas at the pump has increased from $1.87/gal when Biden was elected, to the current increased prices of between $5.00/gal and $6.00/gal in California. 


Casey supports the Biden administration’s “wide-open” northern and southern border policy in place allowing the entry of fentanyl, and other drugs (killing over 100,000 Americans annually), the entry of violent MS-13 gang members, entry of Radical Middle East Islamic Terrorists, the hundreds of thousands Communist Chinese Military personnel, human traffickers, and the entry of over 350,000 Illegal Aliens from 180 countries into the United States each month (they are entering without being checked for contagious disease which have been outbreaking and spreading nationally). 


Casey supports and voted for the out-of-controlled spending by the Socialist Democrats in the Senate that has driven the National Debt to over $34 Tillion.  Casey believes parents should be prevented from having input in their children’s school curriculum and should be prevented from having any control over what their children are being taught in public schools.  Casey supports allowing Drag Queen Story Hour indoctrinations in Public Libraries by men dressed as women who are brainwashing preschool children.

The Combat Veterans For Congress PAC is pleased to endorse Hon David H. McCormick, USMA'87, Cpt-USA, PhD who will bring to the US Senate his experience in the private sector, in the public sector, his military skills, and common sense to better solve problems in government and represent the State of Pennsylvania and the Republic.  If you review former Capt McCormick positions on his website, you would be pleased with his policy positions; they agree with the Combat Veterans For Congress Mission Statement.  We look forward to working with former Capt McCormick and are pleased that a Combat Veteran of his caliber is running for the US Senate. 


If you have friends, associates, or relatives who know voters in Pennsylvania, kindly pass this E-mail on to them, and ask them to support Dave McCormick by working on his campaign, providing financial support for his campaign in any amount, and/or by networking with others who would be willing to support his campaign.  The military is one of the few remaining institutions producing the caliber of men and women needed to restore this nation to the greatness our Founding Fathers envisioned.  We have endorsed another Combat Veteran For Congress that General George Washington would have approved of.  He is a Combat Veteran who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount “up to and including his life.”
