Blown chance


Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler, congratulations.

This week, our national debt will reach $16 trillion, which is greater than our GDP. As you recall, you said you would control spending and reduce the national debt — well?

You have made it worse! Voting for the super committee, then running away, as the other congresspersons have done. But for sure you have not missed a day of fundraising, and you want four more years. You sound like Obama.
