McMorris Rodgers effective

 

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers is an excellent congresswoman who should be re-elected. She understands that job creation and economic recovery begin with America producing the energy and minerals required to power our country, build and repair our infrastructure, ensure our national security, and manufacture everything we use in our daily lives, from computers, cellphones and televisions to household appliances and vehicles.

Simply put, she understands that minerals and natural resources are the beginning of the supply chain.

She understands achieving American energy independence and lessening our dependence on foreign sources of strategic and critical minerals promotes economic growth. She understands Eastern Washington and what it takes to create jobs and help her constituents keep more of the money they earn.

Cathy has fought for smart government spending on all levels. She knows we can’t keep borrowing money at record levels. No economy can support the record level of debt burdening our country and our future. That’s why we need representatives like Cathy, who know how to prioritize spending, and incentivize the private sector to create jobs and thus preserve the American Dream for the next generation.

Join me in supporting Cathy McMorris Rodgers, a smart and effective leader.
