WHERE’S JOHNNY? ISAKSON SILENT IN AT LEAST 40% OF HEALTH, EDUCATION, LABOR, AND PENSIONS COMMITTEE

Did he even bother showing up?

ATLANTA - While on the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, Senator Isakson was silent in at least 40% of his hearings devoted to issues affecting women and families like healthcare equality, equal pay, and the success of Title IX. This is the fourth committee where Isakson had missed nearly half of the hearings when he sat on the committee. Where’s Johnny?

Isakson’s voting records continue to prove that he is on the wrong side for women and families in Georgia. He voted against the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act and opposed the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which makes it easier for women to challenge unfair and illegal pay.

It’s been exactly one week since Jim Barksdale challenged Senator Isakson to debates about the economy in each of Georgia’s primary media markets (Albany, Atlanta, Augusta, Columbus, Macon, and Savannah).

With multiple public polls showing that Barksdale is within single digits, will Senator Isakson tell Georgians why he has not done his job?

Senator Isakson has been a member of several committees during his Senate tenure:

  • Commerce, Science, and Transportation: 111th - 112th Congress
  • Ethics: 110th - 114th Congress
  • Environment and Public Works: 109th - 110th Congress
  • Finance: 113th – 114th Congress
  • Foreign Relations: 110th - 112th, and 114th Congress
  • Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP): 109th - 114th Congress
  • Small Business and Entrepreneurship: 109th - 111th Congress
  • Veterans: 109th - 114th Congress
