Why is Cathy smiling?

Cathy McMorris Rodgers, why did you vote for the Trump tax scam? What is it that you don’t like about the majority of your constituents—the majority who aren’t millionaires? Do you enjoy watching what appears to be many of us going about in some sort of daze, oblivious to your actions, minding our own lives without a care about what you are doing in Washington, D.C.? You’re always smiling behind Paul Ryan during his press conferences, knowing your seat in Congress was safe. Note my choice of verb “was”. Once the voters in the 5th Congressional District really understand your support for the rich, the corporations and Trump, the majority who have been sitting on the sidelines and not voting will rise up and remove you from office. See what happened in Alabama?
