Herrera Beutler is doing her job, working on meaningful legislation

Regarding the guest column, “‘Stop making excuses and do your job’ Camas constituent urges congresswoman,” which was published on the Opinion page of the Oct. 17, 2019, Camas-Washougal Post-Record:

President Trump was duly elected in 2016 as our president and it is the Democratic Congress that is causing the crisis. They need to do their job, legislate and stop this attempt at overthrowing this president on unfounded grounds.

There is about one year left before the November 2020 election. Let the people vote him in or out of office. That is democracy.

Over the past several years, Congresswoman Jamie Herrera Beutler has been doing just that — her job. She has not been letting herself be distracted by the House Democrats abandoning the work of the American people to lay siege to President Trump in their attempt to reinstate the previous president’s failed policies.

The Far Left is content on causing chaos and wasting four years of time and millions of taxpayer’s money.

Congress needs to legislate and stop investigating. Congress needs to work with our current president as it is the result of his policies that: we have lower unemployment and a booming economy; African Americans and Mexican Americans are working again and with higher pay and greater benefits; American companies that fled overseas are returning home; and China is paying attention to Trump and negotiating.

I suggest that the writer of the guest column stops listening to talking heads and the media and takes a look at the current administration’s policies and the results of those policies.

We need more people in Congress that truly care about the people they represent and work on meaningful legislation, like our congresswoman, Jamie Herrera Beutler.

Herrera Beutler was recently ranked by Vanderbilt University’s nonpartisan Center for Effective Lawmaking as the most effective legislator in Washington State throughout the last two years. This is based on her ability to work with her colleagues and get legislation across the finish line.

Carl Keels,
