Loyal to gun makers

On the day of a historic sit-in staged by frustrated House Democrats trying to force a vote on common sense gun control in the aftermath of the nation’s largest mass shooting, where was Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers? Left early for a vacation.

CMR is a loyal supporter of gun manufacturers and the donations of their powerful paid lobbyist, the NRA, but she is flat unresponsive to the majority of her constituents that want reasonable gun control. Eastern Washington voters deserve a representative that values the life of a human being far more than the moneyed interests that back easy access to rapid-fire assault weapons with large magazines designed to kill many human beings at short range.
