Georgia Democrat John Barrow Wants To Keep WWII Vets Away From Their Memorial In DC
NRCC | October 7, 2013

Last week, the House of Representatives voted on numerous bills that would keep priority services in our federal government running.

One of those votes was for H.J. Res. 70 the “Open Our National Parks and Museums Act,” which would ensure memorials, like the World War II memorial in D.C., are open for veterans to enjoy. You have seen the stories – World War II vets on Honor Flights were being turned away this past week.

But what’s weird and very shameful is that Congressman John Barrow voted NO on this bill. Barrow had the opportunity to end the insanity in Washington and let the Greatest Generation enjoy their memorial but instead he chose no.

Why?

Congressman John Barrow made it very clear that he is fine with restricting our Greatest Generation from enjoying their own World War II memorial in Washington. It’s mind-boggling to understand why Barrow would deprive the men and women who saved the world from being able to step foot on their own memorial.
