Representatives’ critics wrong

Sorry, John C. Eagle, but it was Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell who were dancing puppets on a string when they voted for Obamacare, which gave the unions a free walk while destroying my medical system. You also seem to forget that when George Soros says “jump,” Obama, Murray, and Cantwell say “How high sir?” Perhaps if you read Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ Facebook page, you would know she has meetings throughout her district. Patty Murray only met with you Democrats and the unions when she was in town recently.

You need an economics lesson, Mary Ann Murphy. No person, city, county, state, or country can work itself out of debt by continuing to spend and to borrow money. When the Democrats refused to stop spending and borrowing money, stocks fell like a rock and S&P downgraded the U.S. debt.

Strange, Heidi Arbogast, that you, the unions, and other Democrats can slice and dice McMorris Rodgers with half truths, outright lies, and innuendos. Yet, let one editorial get published that tells the truth about Patty Murray’s pork barrels and you scream to high heaven. Tsh! Tsh!

Cathy McMorris Rodgers does represent her district, which is much larger than the whining Democrats would have you believe.
