Scott Tipton voted for the “Working Families Flexibility Act of 2017.” At face value, the title of the legislation sounds good. It “allows” employees to “opt” for compensatory time off instead of receiving overtime pay. However, anyone who has put in a 50-hour work week knows this isn’t helpful for working families and probably wouldn’t be “voluntary” in the workplace.
This bill has passed the House, with Tipton’s support, and it’s pending in the Senate. As a member of the House Financial Services Committee, Scott Tipton should be looking out for his constituents’ well being. But get this, he voted in favor of eliminating Consumer Financial Protection Board protections that allow fairness and protection for average financial consumers. Tipton also voted for the “Financial Choice Act of 2017,” which repeals and reduces the financial regulations put in place to protect consumers! Seriously?
Scott Tipton isn’t working for the benefit of the people of Colorado. It’s obvious. So who’s he working for?
