Letter to the Editor

Who was identified as the most effective legislator in Washington state by the Center for Effective Lawmaking? 

This nonpartisan organization was created by the University of Virginia and Vanderbilt University. 

Their methodology is here: https://thelawmakers.org/methodology

Who introduced the Pandemic Response and Emergency Preparation Act and the Coronavirus Worker Relief Act? Who introduced the House-passed bill to increase affordable housing (H.R. 4351) and the bill “Accelerating Kids’ Access to Care Act?” Who introduced the Better Energy Storage Technology (BEST) Act, H.R. 2986, to improve energy efficiency and strengthen grid security? All are bipartisan. 


It was Jaime Herrera Beutler, our congresswoman! Southwest Washington loves Jaime.

I think Jaime’s just been practicing “social distancing” from all of her constituents over the years with her telephone townhalls.


Mr. Jensen, Mrs. Herrera Beutler hasn't had a live town hall in years. What's she afraid of?

Mrs. Herrera Beutler has fought against Obamacare, which has brought access to healthcare, to tens of millions of low and middle-income Americans.

All of Mrs. Herrera Beutler's health initiatives would be covered without question with universal health care, something else she opposes.

It's time for a change.

Obamacare is working! Average premiums on the Washington health insurance exchange for 2020 are 3.27% lower. Two new insurers have been added. (source: https://www.healthinsurance.org/washington-state-health-insurance-exchange/)
