Seattle Times letters to the editor

July 18, 2014 at 5:34 PM

Primary election: U.S. Rep. Dave Reichert is not a moderate

In The Times’ editorial endorsing U.S. Rep. Dave Reichert for re-election, some of the statements lacked support [“Re-elect Reichert, but with a message, Opinion, July 16].

While Reichert has been hailed as a moderate who represents a purple district, he has joined extremist factions in his party on multiple crucial votes. He has supported warrantless wiretapping, blocked equal pay for women and in fact voted with the tea party-led effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act 54 times.

Reichert says one thing about his agenda and does another; he is unable to act on what he says, reflecting the excessive political gridlock of his party. What he does do, seems not to represent the interests of the 8th Congressional District or the everyday citizen.
