Letters to the Editor
Voters of Eastern Washington’s 5th Congressional District, kindly listen up! Our current U. S. Representative in Congress (Cathy McMorris Rodgers) has pledged her candidacy to Grover Norquist and his Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) never to raise any taxes. ATR is a Norquist boondoggle and is a 501(c) 4 tax-exempt charitable organization that doles out cash to support his pledges. This is not bad for a blatantly political non-profit that raises over $12 million per year and pays Norquist a hefty salary.
We voters can end one aspect of a seven-year travesty by electing Mr. Rich Cowan to Congress. Rich is a Spokane business person whose company employs 40 full-time employees. He understands the needs of workers, business owners, and the citizens of Eastern Washington.
The U. S. House of Representatives has evolved into a dysfunctional organization and needs to be repaired; we must seat Rich Cowan as our U. S. Representative.
Mark that on your calendar—Rich Cowan for Congress!
Donald C. Orlich
