Gary McDowall: Who are state legislators representing?

Some California representatives reportedly voted to end the impasse but neglected to say that their vote included the “end Obamacare” aspect. Now, after all their rhetoric regarding ending the health care program, they are putting it on the back burner and will “deal with it later.”

Their representation appears to cater to the tea party mantra rather than their California districts. Helping close the parks, hurting the economy of the many communities, the businesses that depend on tourism, and the myriad of other aspects that hurt people and business throughout California and beyond is a disgrace.

I am sure they will tout how they ended the impasse when the final deal is done, but this only after their mantra was put on the back burner. More Republican double talk. Pathetic.
