Continuing with her long-established pattern of voting with democrats on fiscal matters (so much for that nonsensical "fiscal conservative" tag) Herrera once again went with her true political allegiance when she voted "no" on cleaning out the nest of unneeded cash from The Empty Suit's worthless, essentially unused "Emergency Mortgage Relief Program," a colossal waste of what money it vaporized in the first place and a bill that wisely eviscerated the remainder.
Barbie, who co-sponsored and voted for SEIU legislation in addition to helping democrats clean out our state emergency fund of its last $229 million during her yawn of a legislative tenure, has shown she's willing to take the "tough" vote for her union masters. Fortunately, in this case (unlike her prior efforts) the legislation went down to defeat.
And all of this begs the question: has McMorris created a monster?
McMorris was a "yes" on this bill... and Herrera was a "no..." one of two Republicans to vote with her fellow leftists.
One of two.
Where does that put Babs on the political spectrum of the GOP?
One has to wonder: you would think that McMorris would remind Barbie that without her, Barbie would still be getting Cathy her coffee from the House cafeteria every morning.
Apparently, Babs don't care. How's that working out for you? And why are we not surprised?
