When the Senate and House voted to end the GOP-driven “shutdown” of the federal government, Tom McClintock voted no. He would rather see children starve and be refused medical care, and our county has more than its fair share of those. It is clear that he is part of the faction of the GOP devoted to destroying our county by shutting off the programs that citizens have every right to expect from their federal government, especially citizens who are poor and indigent through no fault of their own.
There are two kinds of elected officials: Those who seek to do the best they can to serve the citizens they represent, and those who simply see elected office as a well-paying job. Given that his history suggests he’s never had a productive job other than in politics, it’s clear which kind he is. It’s time for the Democrats in the CA-04 Congressional District to find a true representative who is concerned with the wealth and prosperity of the citizens of the district, and to support the election of that adult to the House of Representatives.
