It is way past time for radical Republicans to stop playing their partisan political posturing and start doing what they were elected to do. Representative McMorris Rodgers has forgotten that she was elected to REPRESENT her constituents, not to decide what is best for them or how to get the approval of some fringe group or another or to please her corporate contributors, most of whom are not even from our State.
Someone being paid $174,000. per year when her constituents household incomes average just under 36,000 has no clue what difference $40 per month makes for those of us in the real world.
Shame on you Cathy McMorris Rodgers!!!! and I say that as a former contributor and supporter (ashamedly).
