Gabbard fighting the good fight in Congress

The Maui News printed a letter April 9 castigating Rep. Tulsi Gabbard for voting in favor of the bill to fund the U.S. government for another six months. This seemed very odd to me.

Even though the inclusion of the “Monsanto Protection” rider poisoned what should have been a simple bill to continue funding things like Social Security checks, pay for our troops, security for our airports, etc., our congresspeople were left with no choice but to vote yes or see the entire U.S. government shut down.

Tulsi Gabbard has kept her promises. She’s in the House with a Republican majority determined to disrupt the government and do favors for their corporate donors, and she’s fighting for us as much as is possible given the current congressional dysfunction.
