Clueless about dams

I read recently an article where Cathy McMorris Rodgers was saying that all the Seattle folks were pushing for dam breaching/removal. I had to laugh since she is pretty clueless of her own “constituency.”

I have lived in Pullman for 25 years and the rest in Coeur d’Alene and am an enrolled Nez Perce whose ancestors lived along the Clearwater and Snake long before Rodgers’ family of migrants came to this country. As a matter of record, I am for Snake River dam breaching and/or removal due to the potential extinction of salmon in these rivers.

McMorris Rodgers apparently knows nothing of Eastern Washington or salmon. In my opinion, instead of parroting words that she doesn’t research, she should keep her mouth closed on issues she knows nothing about.
