Debunking The Republican Liars – US Representative Washington’s 5th District Cathy McMorris Rogdgers

mcmorris rodgers7

The great news for Cathy McMorris Rodgers is that the Republicans in Eastern Washington are so stupid, not one of them will bother to fact check what she says versus what she does.

In beginning to debunk the lies of Cathy McMorris Rodgers, you have to start with the knowledge that she and her husband own 2 homes.

OK not unusual.

Except one is in Washington….D.C. and the other is in San Diego, Ca.

Assets :
1426 G St SE/Washington, DC $500,001 to $1,000,000
3057 Hunrichs Way/San Diego, CA $500,001 to $1,000,000(1)- Open Secrets

Ummmm…..

My home isn’t worth $500,000 to $1,000,000.
In Eastern Washington most people’s homes aren’t.
Does that make Cathy McMorris Rodgers ‘out of touch’ with most people in Eastern Washington?

So when Cathy McMorris Rodgers retires from Congress, she is not going to come back and live in Eastern Washington. The Eastern Washington that is very strongly conservative and also the ‘welfare’ half of ‘Blue’ State Washington.

welfare state

No Cathy McMorris Rodgers is not going to come back and live in the poor half of Washington.

She will likely become a lobbyist and stay in Washington D.C. and travel back to their new home in San Diego.

So which lie to start with…there are so many…….aside from the one where she says she is working hard for us and instead is just bidding her time to move away with a very nice pension….a pension we will pay for.

‘Congresswoman Says She Supports Equal Pay Laws, Voted Against Them Four Times’

‘In response to a question from Blitzer about President Obama’s call for equal pay in his State of the Union Address on Tuesday and whether she is “with the President when he says that there should be laws mandating equal pay for equal work for women,” McMorris Rodgers, who gave the official Republican response, replied’:

“Yes. Yes. Absolutely. Republicans and I support equal pay for equal work. My message last night was one about empowering everyone in this country, no matter what your background, no matter where you live, what corner of the country, no matter what your experiences are. We want you to have the opportunity for a better life”.(2)

She left out the part that while she wants everybody to have the opportunity for a better life while she keeps voting against giving women that chance……

But McMorris Rodgers actually voted against laws meant to address the pay disparity between men and women four times.(2)

Her voting record : http://www.opencongress.org/people/voting_history/400659_Cathy_McMorris_Rodgers

She voted against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act twice, which lengthened the time for victims of pay discrimination to file a complaint’.

‘She also voted twice against the Paycheck Fairness Act, a measure aimed at closing the gender wage gap by ending the practice of salary secrecy’.(2)
