“Like it or not, the White House and Senate have blocked House efforts to address the issues with the Affordable Care Act. Nothing positive will be achieved by prolonging this shutdown any longer, or crossing the debt limit threshold. It’s time for my colleagues to face reality.”HHhhmmmmm..... sounds like the Belle of Botox, aka Nancy Pelosi, wrote this for her.
And what has Herrera's "reality" gained us?
Instead of fighting for the right thing, she caved on the expedient thing...what she refers to, stupidly, as "reality."
Well, her "reality," that her vote supported.... has been an unmitigated disaster. Millions across this country now have no health care insurance when a few short months ago, they were covered.
Allegedly, a million have managed to find a way to sign up for this rip off... while millions more have discovered that the use of the word "Affordable" as it pertains to Obamacare for many has been a cruel, pathetic joke.
And where has our imitation of a congresswoman been on this?
No where. Like so many other issues where she has ignored her constituency to have it blow up in her face, she goes into full silent defilade mode, not to be seen or heard from... except, of course, the use of her baby as a political accessory... not unlike ear rings.
THAT we've heard about unceasingly. Unfortunately, none of that smoke and mirrors crap makes her any more suitable to be in Congress.
The result? This establishment paragon... this robot, built by Cathy McMorris of spare parts laying around her office... this waste of space... has disappeared on us like she so frequently does. McMorris jerks the strings, and Herrera dutifully does what she's told... in this case, once again ignoring the will of the people she allegedly "represents," using the term advisedly.
Where have we seen that before?
Why, democrat Slimeball Stuart, erstwhile County Commissioner and political dead man walking told us.
"And I've said it before: I don't speak for the people.. I will NEVER speak for "the people," I speak for Steve and some of you are going to agree with me and some of you aren't."This kind of bastardization of government has brought us to this.
This tossing of the basic tenets of alleged representative government into the garbage heap of history has brought us to this.
The very idea where those the people have elected can actually believe that they can supersede the judgement of the people with their own. The monumental arrogance, in some respects, channeling the infamous dictators of the past... each and every one of whom believed themselves to be the smartest people in the room... and that all others were the ignorant unwashed.
Tell me: what's the difference between a Slimeball Stuart, a Liar Leave-it, or a Ridgefield Barbie congresswoman?
They all believe the people to be idiots. They all believe those they would govern have zero value. They don't care what we think, believe or want.
That's been made clear by the democrats scamming the CRC rip off, and our alleged congresscritter in Washington DC for this, the end of her 3rd year there and her 6th year in elective office, who has accomplished absolutely nothing to end it.
And that's what I mean when it comes to labeling. Arrogant fringe-left nutters like Molehill Moeller, The Liar Leave-it (Another fake Republican, come to think of it) and the Camas Manikin... where are they different in what they actually want when it comes to the CRC Scam?
Stuart, effectively, tells the people to fuck off. Everything he's done, lie upon lie, broken promise upon broken promise, all have been aimed at aiding and abetting the extortion needed for the CRC Scam. One wonders: what reward has Slimeball been promised?
Herrera, effectively, goes to the other end of the spectrum. She wants the people to BELIEVE that she opposes the CRC Scam... but ask her to list what changes she's made in it... where she's stripped off loot rail, or killed tolls, or raised the bridge to a height that won't necessitate a massive, $100,000,000 mitigation payment... and you'll just get a blank look.
She's written letters. She's put out indignant press releases. But what difference has she made?
None. But then, her top donor is Kiewit, after all, and, well, when you've been bought for $15,000 in donations you really can't be expected to oppose those with the check books, can you?
She has had 6 years in office to do something. And what has she actually accomplished?
So, Slimeball does all he can to make the CRC Scam happen, damn what the people want... and Ridgefield Barbie has done all she can to allow it to happen... damn what the people want.
And this goes to the heart of the matter.
I don't give a damn what party these scum claim for purposes of getting elected.
What I care about is what they accomplish once they get there.
In this case, Stuart has worked hard to screw the people, and Herrera has worked hard to allow him.
Combine that with Herrera's routine decision to vote with the democrats, and, well, gee: tell me again why I should vote for a so-called "establishment Republican?"
The worst that could happen is that Herrera loses. And considering her voting record, her lack of courage, her failure to hold town hall meetings, her inaction on the issues that matter.... who would notice any difference in our representation in Congress?
There wouldn't be any. Democrat, RINO like Herrera... what difference would it make?
In summation, it's easy to compare and contrast when in the end, they are precisely the same.
