So, as a part of Herrera's staff, the rag can't be beat for sheer, unadulterated "suckupness."
This clown could knock over a 7-11 and the local rag would spin it as just another fund-raiser.
I, personally, don't get it. Whenever anyone googles the phrase "do-nothing congress," this disgrace to elected office pops up as the poster-girl.
Now, she gets to be a member of TWO committees where she will do absolutely nothing except continued to be paid like a political hooker, with monies from those who own her like the 13th Amendment was, in fact, the 13th Suggestion.
She did noting in the legislature except run for Congress, and now that she, to our ever-lasting shame, has arrived there, she's done absolutely nothing but warm a seat and collect a pay check that none of them deserve.
She's lied, misrepresented and exaggerated. She prevaricates on the CRC scam; instead of acknowledging the whole thing is a rip off and killing the federal funding for it, she plays the constituency here one way, and the special interests who've provided her with a congressional tramp-stamp, another, assuring both ends of this argument that she's looking out for them.
She had none in Olympia (Except, of course, for the democrats), and she's got none in DC (except, of course, for the democrats). Her votes, most recently on the fiscal cliff scam, have supported adding TRILLIONS to our debt, jacked our debt ceiling repeatedly, and have done nothing to make any meaningful cuts in spending... just like any other democrat.
What's the latest from this joke on the CRC? What is she doing to shut this rip off down or get a federal investigation into corruption? Heard anything since that moronic letter/press release hit the rag... all those words that said precisely dick?
Does she understand that she has a limited shelf-life when it comes tom this issue?
"Doing something is always better than doing nothing."
I get that the rag loves her. She is TOTALLY and completely in the tank for this scam; she supports replacing a bridge that doesn't need replacing, loot rail that we don't want or need, and generational tolls that, like almost all loot rail cheerleaders, SHE won't have to pay.
She's their token Republican at the federal level. You think they would be kissing her wide-glide if she were actually working for US instead of the downtown mafia/CRUDEC/Chamber of horrors?
She is, perhaps, the most shallow and vacuous human being I've ever met. And she, "represents" US, in Congress.
Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
