CMR’s poor judgment

If you are a conservative Republican, you are likely to be upset with Cathy McMorris Rodgers because she hasn’t overturned Roe v. Wade, hasn’t defunded Planned Parenthood or stopped and impeached Obama.

If you are a liberal Democrat, you very likely don’t like the fact that Cathy added $5 trillion in Iraq war debt, voted to repeal Obamacare more than 50 times, helped to shut down our government or remained silent when President Obama’s citizenship and religious faith were questioned.

If you are an Independent, you might be upset that under Cathy’s House leadership we have a dysfunctional government where nothing is getting done largely due to a Republican-controlled House that can’t agree among themselves what should be done, let alone work with those across the aisle to achieve results.

Or you may be concerned about Cathy’s judgment, since she endorses and supports Donald Trump despite his being unqualified in every respect to be president. Something Donald proves again and again every time he opens his mouth.

Cathy’s poor judgment and lack of leadership and representation leaves everyone dissatisfied and frustrated. Fortunately for Eastern Washington there is a qualified and great alternative in Joe Pakootas.
