Letter: Houlahan puts party over country on impeachment

To The Editor,

Congresswomen Chrissy Houlahan has joined all but two of her fellow Democrats by voting yes on the resolution to “formally” start an impeachment inquiry into the President of the United States.

Once again, Chrissy Houlahan has placed party over the people by blindly following Congressman Adam Schiff and Speaker Nancy Pelosi down the “impeachment” rabbit hole.

Congresswoman Chrissy Houlahan publicly vowed weeks ago in an op-ed that her “responsibility as a representative was to focus her work on improving people’s lives through advancing critically important legislation involving everything from transportation to education to health care”. If that statement was true, she would refuse to go along with the impeachment charade that does absolutely nothing to advance important initiatives like the USMCA, comprehensive immigration reform or advancing the vote on defense funding.

Congresswoman Houlahan, and the Democrat controlled House, have gotten very little accomplished on these important issues in the first 10 months of their majority.

Furthermore, they have wasted precious legislative time by focusing their committee work on unsubstantiated Russian collusion and now, in the past month, on an out of control and secretive investigation into a phone call with the Ukraine president that the US DOJ has clearly said was not illegal or in violation of any law.

Through Chrissy Houlahan’s direct support and vote, the House will continue to ignore the people’s business by continuing its focus on an historically unprecedented and unfair impeachment process. By doing so, she is directly complicit in the greatest political sideshow in US history while her constituents’ policy needs are shoved to the side of the road.

The people of the 6th District deserve more from Houlahan. We did not send her to Washington

D.C. to play political parlor games. We sent her to get things done for the people of the 6th District!
