Regarding Washington’s Fifth District Congressional Representative. It’s interesting to have read all of an incumbent Congresswoman’s posturing and bloviating about civility and the whatnots connected to civil discourse. After which she commenced video bites and mailers about her opponent that started and stayed right in the gutter. Most likely they will end there.
It seems almost metaphoric that after Cathy McMorris Rodgers blathered on and on for six years about replacing the Affordable Care Act, when they could have they failed. To this day, McMorris Rodgers and her party have not even a mediocre record about which they might brag.
As her record shows, the Congresswoman is certainly more representative of someone else than she has represented the best interests of her district in such mediocrity.
As I read through her list of accomplishments, I was struck by the sum of those accomplishments – which amounted to nothing more than a mediocre performance. If voters expected a better-than-average performance, they ought to be disappointed.
There was nothing outstanding in her list. It’s a list compiled in such a way as to imply that her priorities were comprehensively varied and her attention to them was focused and purposeful. The list is surprising in its brevity and what the Congresswoman seems to think will wow voters.
What comes across is not much more than a child reporting the few things she did rather than all the things she should have done. Cathy tries to imply that she has accomplished the kind of spectacular success that a lesser politician might have failed to do.
However there was nothing in her resume that could not have been as easily accomplished and bragged about by an equally inefficient low yield worker.
What is in her particular resume, however, (if you do your research) is that she suborned her priorities to the priorities of her party.In doing so McMorris Rodgers continued team-working herself onto the starting party team. She is there by title and status but her record does not seem to establish any proof of her supposed individually powerful authority and accomplishment as the highest ranking Republican woman in the House.
In that regard, she and her team did not spend as much time on their constituency concerns as they could have. They were busy wasting tax-payer time attempting to repeal or replace the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare” to their constituent choirs). To this day the Republican majority has still got nothing.
As an influential Congresswoman, McMorris was part of the “team” that has attempted to repeal Obamacare more than 50 times since its passage. The statute was enacted in 2010 which means that Republicans wasted money and ignored more pressing problems an average of almost ten times every year through 2016.
What the hell are they thinking? Weren’t there certainly more important things to spend taxpayer time and money on?
McMorris Rodger’s accomplishments roster reads like a list of personal minor favors every member of the good old boys club divvied out to their constituents in every Congressional district they represented.
