    Not trying to be too dramatic here, but is anyone else feeling extremely depressed about this whole situation?

    McMorris-Rodgers actually has a decent challenger in 2018, Lisa Brown. Spokane these days is getting increasingly blue, which could start to shift things in that district.

    This is a government run by the money and for the money. So sick of living in an oligarchy that pretends it is a democracy.

    The only reason Newhouse gets reelected is because he is able to outspend his only real competition, Clint Dider. He gets all of this money from circumstances just like this one.

    i have typically been a right leaning voter but ive seen the writing on the wall with McMorris for some time now, and voted against her last election.

    she did a twitter Q&A several years ago after it came out that she took money from a lobbyist to vote against net-neutrality and you can imagine how well that went.

    whats worse is that she couldnt even explain what she voted against. she took money to vote against it and didnt have the goddamn common decency to read what it was. she is clueless.

    In April of this year I attended a listening session Dan Newhouse had in my district.

    He was answering questions written down before the session started. My question got picked. I asked him what he was doing to protect Net Neutrality. He had no idea what it was. Go figure. Fuck these guys.

    Dan “The Sellout” Newhouse repeats whatever the republican party tells him to, he has no backbone whatsoever. He holds telephone town halls unexpectedly to better control the conversation and he can not justify his tax vote, even though he plans to vote for it. I want him to be voted out as his votes are doing more harm than good to the people in the 4th district. Their interests would be better represented by a candidate who listens to their constituents.

    Can we make a habit on tweeting these people and letting them know that they’ve lost our votes? I think that’d be more effective. It probably won’t make a difference but a public shaming is always great.

    CMR is my rep and she hasn’t given two shits for years now. As long as she’s anti-abortion and keeps the AFB open, she can do whatever she wants and get 60% of the vote. Curious to see what happens with a POTUS-sized albatross around her neck and a decent opponent next fall.

The internet is a utility and a haven for millions. I just spent the last week fighting an Isp and the fact that the internet can now be trrated the same way as I was makes me wanna projectile vomit.

    I’m in favor of net neutrality as much as the next guy, but this poorly informed witch-hunting isn’t going to make us look any better.

    1. This is an FCC rule being imposed by a Trump appointee. The House has literally no influence on this, other than trying to put net neutrality rules into law (which the Dems decided not to do either). Of course that would never happen with Trump vetoing it.
    2. This stupid obsession with labeling anyone who takes money from a corporation you don’t like is being bribed. Like Durkan, politicians receive money from tons of different interests in a bunch of different methods. McMorris-Rodgers herself is getting 20k this year from Microsoft (who supports net neutrality) versus 10k from Comcast, so how the fuck is she being a paid shill?

    If you can’t even get the basics right, why is anyone going to believe your point of view? I guess this same strategy worked from Trump, so what the hell do I know? Seeing politics devolve to this is just sad to see I guess.

    Edit: And since I know I’m gonna get downvoted to hell, I would prefer an open discussion on the merits of my argument.

    I thought America was a democracy and from what it seems most people are against this so why is there no vote or anyone listening? It seems like most of your laws go through without anyone listening to what the PEOPLE want.
