Re: “Money and Challengers, Oh My

Several times back in the past (i.e., before the attack) I can remember listening to our Representative Gabrielle Giffords live on local radio, being interviewed and taking calls. Gabrielle took all calls without hesitation and spoke up on a range of issues, even those that were personal to the caller. In a soft voice, Gabrielle spoke with strength and sincerity. With so many people in office today, such courage and common sense have evaporated.

Re: “Money and Challengers, Oh My

"And for the desperately poor people of her district?" They just finished 8 years with the fantastic Obama economy. What else could they need?

And now you link Koch with the Russians? You do know the Kochs opposed Trump, or do you?

Everyone else has dropped the Russian fake news. You might as well join them.

Re: “Money and Challengers, Oh My

I don't believe that it was McSally's pestering of the Air Force that saved the A10 and, other than a weak vote of support for the Sonoran Corridor project, she has brought NOTHING of value - - not even on the conservative side - - to southern Arizona. And for the desperately poor people of her district? Also, NOTHING of value. Face it! She is just a certain vote for the Koch/Exxon/Putin wing of the Federal Government, which serves only corporate greed and the idle rich. Time to send her back to New Jersey.

Re: “Money and Challengers, Oh My

Since you're bringing up challengers to Congresswoman McSally, may I note that I'm also running? If you want a representative that will spend less time fundraising and more time talking and listening to constituents, visit my website, check me out, and get in touch. I sincerely want to hear from you. https://charlieverdin.com/

Re: “Money and Challengers, Oh My

Oh yeah, I forgot. She voted to let coal companies pour their waste into streams, voted to let people with mental challenges purchase guns, voted to bring back lead bullets, which leach into the ground and poison birds who eat other animals hit by those bullets, and generally roll back all things that are trying to keep corporate greed from destroying the planet.

McSally also voted to defund Planned Parenthood and repeal the ACA numerous times without a viable alternative. She voted in favor of plan that would take healthcare from millions of people who desperately need it so the uber-rich could get the $200,000 tax refund they so richly deserve (insert sarcasm here). She voted to let Cox and Comcast sell your web viewing history because, well, the cable companies make a $40,500 contribution to her. She has been and will always be a paid for shill for the Koch brothers.

Re: “Money and Challengers, Oh My

For all of you that hate corporate welfare, didn't the city and the county just approve a million of our pothole repair dollars to an airline for non stop flights to NY? Please make them one way flights and take the politicians with you.

Re: “Money and Challengers, Oh My

Based on the ROI (return on investment), I am pretty sure that electing politicians to any office -- federal, state or local -- amounts to crowd-sourcing careers, income, benefits and retirement of said politicians with little else to show for the common constituents.

Now, if you are a special interest lobbyist, corporation or major donor, America has the best politicians you can buy, but don't ask the Russians right now, I think they are having buyer's remorse.

Re: “Money and Challengers, Oh My

I've demonstrated outside McSally's office, but I'd call myself a constituent, not a political opponent. Isn't there an interim between elections when a representative should be thinking about keeping promises (McSally did promise to only support a health care plan if it provided better and more affordable coverage than the ACA), addressing constituents' concerns, and even keeping her oath to support the Constitution?
