Rep. Jeff Fortenberry has voted with Trump 100% of the time.

Jeff Fortenberry has a reputation in some circles that he is a moderate. He has gained this reputation because he is a genuinely nice guy — in contrast to Trump and many prominent Republicans. However, when you look at his voting record, Fortenberry is a hardcore conservative who dutifully follows Trump, his party bosses and the most extreme elements in the GOP.

Thus far in 2017, Fortenberry has made the following votes:

1. Allowed financial advisers to give you bad advice.

2. Made it possible for the mentally ill to get guns.

3. Allowed coal companies to dump pollution in streams .

4. Voted to add $9 trillion to the national debt and bring us back to the days of annual deficits of $1 trillion.

According to Nate Silver, Fortenberry has voted with Trump 100% of the time in 2017 and is expected to vote with Trump 98% of the time……
