PHOENIX, Arizona – Senator John McCain fully backs President Obama’s Interior Secretary pick Ken Salazar’s Wild Horse Management plan as stated in a LETTER* received from his office today. In 2009, McCain States: “Interior Secretary Ken Salazar described the Wild Horse program as unsustainable for both horses and American taxpayers -- and I agree.”
Senator McCain seems to be echoing the mantra of Obama’s program, all the while costing the taxpayer over 67 million dollars a year in a time when the country is desperately looking for ways to save money. McCain goes on to talk about the need for the Bureau of Land management (BLM) to provide for livestock grazing, etc.
I’m sure the President appreciates the Senator’s backing.
