Keep our congresswoman

I am a college student at Eastern Washington University, and I am concerned about the direction our country is heading. My biggest concern is the national debt and deficit. The blame goes on both sides of party lines; Presidents Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush all contributed to where we are, but President Barack Obama needs to buck up and take responsibility as well.

He has thrown money at the national problems, and it is not working. What is going to happen when countries stop lending us money? We are America, not Greece. Enough is enough.

I am proud to say that our congresswoman, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, has been fighting to stop the spending. She voted against the Troubled Asset Relief Program, bank bailouts and economic stimulus package, and she supports the Rep. Paul Ryan budget that makes tough spending-cut decisions.

I hate seeing so many people say that Congress is broken and blaming it on her. The bickering between the House and Senate is ridiculous, but we need to keep our congresswoman and get a new senator and president.
