Need change in Congress

If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, then how can anyone realistically believe that re-electing Cathy McMorris Rodgers will make a difference?

McMorris Rodgers states she is working hard to reduce unemployment, yet has voted against every piece of proposed legislation that would provide relief, including the Senate jobs bill, small-business lending fund, the small-business tax amendment and aid to states, which would provide additional funding to hire and/or retain teachers.

Her response to bills in favor of extending unemployment benefits, as well as support for science and technology: a clear and resounding “no.”

She states that she worked hard to maintain Fairchild Air Force Base, yet voted against key measures for defense funding, which Sens. Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray supported.

I have spent a great deal of time researching her voting record and trying to find a connection between what she says and what she does. What I have found is a consistent pattern of evasions, distractions and outright lies.

If you truly want change, I urge you to join me in supporting Rich Cowan for Congress.
