Letter: Herrera Beutler blocking progress

Published:

 

U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Camas, is proving to be the wrong choice for the 3rd Congressional District. Look at her voting record. She voted to keep the tax incentive to send jobs overseas when so many are out of work here. She voted to keep the Bush tax cuts for ultra-rich. She voted for big oil companies to keep their tax credits. She voted for Rep. Paul Ryan’s, R-Wis., voucher program and to do away with Medicare. She voted to cut Pell Grants, Head Start, WIC programs, and even voted against the energy light bulb.

Now she is obstructing efforts in Congress to raise the debt ceiling, which could lead to a financial calamity. How is she helping you? When she is next up for re-election, vote to replace her with someone who cares about Clark County, not the Tea Party in D.C.
