Like our state GOP legislators, not only is Rehberg terrible, he’s pretty much a complete nobody, only earning distinction as an embarrassment. From The Nation:
Rehberg’s heartlessness spans decades: in 1994, Newsweek reported that Rehberg, in defense of state budget cuts to hospitals, said “the problem with AIDS is: you get it, you die. So why are we spending money on the issue?” More recently, in 2007, Rehberg voted against the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which extends protection from hate crimes to victims of malice and violence based on gender and sexual orientation. An adamant supporter of the Iraq war, he voted against a bill to give troops mandatory rest periods between deployments.
