“you can’t have military commanders out there working against the policy of presidents, even if they’re wrong. “That’s my job,” the Brighton Republican and Army veteran said
Now, you may have thought that Mr. Rogers' job was to represent his constituents in Washington.
Oh, you big silly!
In addition to working against the policies of the President of the United States of America, Mr. Rogers has many serious responsibilities in DeeCee.
For example, on Wednesday he co-hosted the first Capitol Hill Family Game Night to educate families on
“how to enjoy video games and online media in ways that are safer, healthier and more balanced.”
Don't worry -- Mr. Rogers is working on lots of other crucial issues, too:
* he wrote a letter to MSU basketball coach Tom Izzo imploring him to stay in Michigan
* he continues to run his cash-raising machine with a string of foodie fundraisers
* he voted against H.R. 5175, which would
prohibit foreign influence in Federal elections, to prohibit government contractors from making expenditures with respect to such elections, and to establish additional disclosure requirements with respect to spending in such elections
* last but not least, he voted against H.R. 4213, which extended unemployment benefits and provided tax relief for individuals and businesses.
Got all that?
Michigan has led the nation in unemployment since April 2006 (as of last month, we slipped to Number 2, behind Nevada). We've lost nearly 800,000 jobs since Mr. Rogers first went off to Washington.
Given Michigan's devastated economy, why does Mr. Rogers think it's more important to work against the President, fight government transparency, screw over the unemployed and keep video games safe for families?
The bad news: this is just more proof that Mike Rogers doesn't give a rat's patootie about MI-08.
The good news: you have a choice this year!
East Lansing educator Lance Enderle has filed to be the write-in candidate for the Democratic nomination in the August 3rd primary.
Write him in, and see the difference a REAL representative can make!
