Tom Foley’s political life certainly exemplified “the idea that we all work together for the common good.” (“Foley movie would shine light on political civility,” (Jim Camden, The Spokesman-Review, March 19, 2018).
It is important to point this out when it happens today. For example, the Reach Every Mother and Child Act: bipartisan legislation to help end the preventable deaths of millions of mothers and children in our world. This life-saving legislation makes our work more efficient to end these deaths. Nearly a quarter of the members of Congress from both parties have already co-sponsored this bill, including the majority of Washington state’s congressional delegation. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, now representing Mr. Foley’s district, is a part of this important push to save lives around the world.
So let’s thank those who represent us for doing this “work together for the common good,” and ask them to make sure this bill passes.
