Letter to the Editor

All of the headlines and political news can be overwhelming, which is why I’m glad we have Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler in Congress fighting on our behalf.  

Rather than getting distracted by the latest tweets or finger-pointing, Jaime is getting bills passed on issues that matter: lowering the cost of prescription drugs, making housing more affordable, supporting higher wages and preserving our salmon and steelhead runs.  

It makes total sense why the Center for Effective Lawmaking rated her the most effective federal legislator in Washington, and it’s critical that we re-elect her.

Sorry! That's Mr. Johnson.


Mr. Wogen, Mrs. Herrera Beutler has fought tooth and nail against Obamacare. The Affordable Care Act has provided access to health care, to tens of millions of low and middle income Americans.

All the things you mention in your letter would be covered without question by universal health care, which Mrs. Herrera Beutler is also opposed to.

By the way, overall average premiums in Washington’s health insurance exchange decreased by 3.27 percent for 2020.

Obamacare is working.
