Send Tim Packing - Holden's Traveled on Our Dime Long Enough

Press Release

Dave Argall, Republican nominee for Congress, is launching SendTimPacking.com, a website that sheds light on Tim Holden's "fiscal responsibility" while taking taxpayer funded trips abroad.

"As the summer months come to a close, our children are returning back to school, while many families in Pennsylvania were forced to cut back on vacationing. However, our Congressman has been sending us the bill for his extravagant trips overseas. Unfortunately, the taxpayers of this district are overtaxed and overburdened by reckless spending in Washington and this goes to show that not only is our Congressman not pushing for fiscal responsibility, he uses your tax dollars to pay for his vacation as well," stated Dave Argall.

Argall continued, "The summer months allow our families to gather, whether on camping trips, at the beach or in neighbor's backyards, we have all worked hard and saved our money to enjoy the summer months. However, in a little over a year, Congressman Holden's trips abroad have cost us over $120,000 for his airfare, food and lodging."

"With your help, we can ensure we send someone who stands for the taxpayers of this district and not the liberal leadership in Washington living plush lifestyles on your dime. As your next Congressman, I will push for greater transparency by listening to your concerns, not flying around the world to avoid meeting with constituents at town hall meetings," concluded Argall.
