Wyden: Ignore my voting record, this is a press conference

Senator Wyden Hosts Meth Discussion
Senator Ron Wyden opened the panel discussion by saying "We will not sacrifice anymore children to methamphetamine".

That's great but...
Senator Wyden Voted NO on increasing penalties for drug offenses Bill S.625 ; vote number 1999-360

Senator Wyden Voted NO on spending international development funds on drug control
Bill HR 3540 ; vote number 1996-244

Making lofty statements in front of television cameras doesn't keep drug addicts in jail, a couple of YES votes might have.
