Rob McKenna wants us to believe he’s a moderate, but he declared at a Tea Party rally, “My name is Rob McKenna and I represent you” (Tea Party rally, March 27, 2010).
The Tea Party Republicans do not represent Washington. Yet Republican Rob McKenna says “the Tea Party is exactly what this country is about” (The Stranger, 3.2-3.8.11).
In Washington we know what their Republican agenda is really about: cutting Education Funding (U.S. News and World Report, 3/2/11), cutting vital services for seniors and disabled (Kaiser Foundation, April 2011), even eliminating access to abortion (Republican National Committee Platform,www.GOP.com).
The Tea Part agenda is wrong for our Washington, and Republican Rob McKenna is not who he says he is.
