With her vote tonight to sell us out, she joined with the rest of the Washington state delegation in throwing us under the Obama bus.
As our resident sellout, Herrera has been utterly worthless since she managed to scam her way into office. That she calls herself a Republican is why I was ashamed to call myself one.
There's obviously no place in a party like this for someone like me, so I leave them behind in their lamentations about being weak kneed cowards, when we need people of courage, of integrity, and sacrifice. People who are not afraid to put their political future behind the well-being of their constituency.
That's not a problem that Jaime Herrera has to struggle with.
And if you're looking for why McConnell cave done this? Look no further:
