It has become difficult to watch the dismantling and destruction of science, health and the environment for the benefit of the wealthy. I feel it my duty to express my concern for the next generation.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ influence as a high-ranking GOP elected official has been wasted with her steadfast, never-wavering desire to follow the GOP doctrine. Health care is important. Maintaining Social Security and Medicare is important. Clear skies and clean water are important. Preservation of national parks is important. Her votes to reverse these gains are a vote against our future. The Republican addition to the tax reform bill to defile Alaska’s North Slope for carbon fuel exploration is a sad example of the GOP reliance on the past and desire to support the oil superPACs. Our future is not coal or carbon fuel.
CMR’s foot-in-the-past mentality and inability to support science and clean energy technology will eventually be her undoing. Lisa Brown looks like a legitimate contender for the next election.
