Cathy’s kit dishonest

The July 24 article on Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ “planning kit” for Republican House members to use during the August recess should be cause for alarm. I assume she follows her own advice to other Republican House members and will make sure that all participants and attendees to her Obamacare tour meetings in the 5th Congressional District will be adamantly “on message” that Obamacare needs to be repealed.

This way, McMorris Rodgers can then “honestly” tell her constituents and fellow House members that Eastern Washington is 100 percent against Obamacare, and in favor of repeal, because she will have talked with people throughout the district and received such message loud and clear during the August recess.

I would expect such shenanigans from former Louisiana Gov. Huey Long, but not from our 5th District representative.
