It is time for Rep. McMorris Rodgers to step up, show some courage and leadership and work with her Republican and Democratic colleagues to end this deplorable shutdown. Working together, they could frame a solution to “force” this divisive president to abandon his “narcissistic obsession” with a border wall. There is absolutely no evidence a wall will do anything to enhance border security. Its construction, however, will certainly waste money. Money better spent on implementing a sound, bipartisan-generated immigration policy including rational border security.
Congress is supposed to act as a balance to the Executive Branch, yet Rep. McMorris Rodgers and her Republican colleagues continually swallow their character and values in order to enable Mr. Trump’s lies and abuses of the presidential office.
This shutdown and what it is doing to the struggling government employees is unconscionable. I urge Rep. McMorris Rodgers to stop kowtowing to Donald Trump and work toward forcing a real solution.
As an independent voter I can assure you we independents hold President Trump and the Republican Party responsible for this shutdown. This will be remembered!
