Letter: Government shutdown reason to replace Hastings
Mike Cochrane of Kennewick said we should let "Doc Hastings and his buddies know what a great disservice they did by their selfish actions" with regard to the government shutdown (Letters, Oct. 18).
I agree. But I think we should do much more than that. We should do everything we can to make sure Doc and his buddies are not re-elected.
Congress continues to behave the way it does because we keep electing people like Doc to office. The only way to change their behavior is to change who we elect to work for us. It's time Doc learned we elected him to solve problems, not point fingers. He has failed miserably and it's time to replace him.
