The annual congressional summer break has left the American public with a cliffhanger in the latest chapter of our nation’s history. As the president retreats to hobnob with friends and family at Martha’s Vineyard, it is being left to congressional members like Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers to return back home to meet with real Americans to figure out how to pick up the pieces of this financial crisis.
As the president works on his golf game, Cathy will be traveling the district hosting public meetings to hear directly from her constituents how to best solve the problems we all face. Cathy understands, like most of us, that jobs and a balanced budget are the only way to fix our debt issues. The 5th Congressional District is lucky to have a representative with the courage to come home and consistently engage the public in advancing our Eastern Washington ideals.
