As this administration's actions continue to undermine the welfare of average Americans everywhere, please remember at election time next year that Trump's congressional minions, which include Representative Hartzler, are necessary for the furtherance of his misguided policies.

Our Missouri District 4 representative, Vicky Hartzler, continues in her mindless embrace of the Trump administration's destructive policies.

First, it was the campaign to undo the ACA. Ryan's "Better Way" was going to save the day, then came the series of Trumpcare fiascos. Lately, we don't hear so much from her on the health issue, but more recently, she gave an enthusiastic response to Trump's transgender policy which blindsided the military establishment that she so vocally claims to support.

Arguing for this policy, she inflated the cost of transgender medical procedures by a factor of 20 over an estimate from the Rand Corporation.

Now it's the Trump tax plan which is supposed to revitalize the economy with job-creating tax breaks. All the evidence shows that hiring decisions do not respond to income tax cuts, nor does overall economic activity. The Kansas debacle is only the latest example of the fallacy of this myth.

As this administration's actions continue to undermine the welfare of average Americans everywhere, please remember at election time next year that Trump's congressional minions, which include Representative Hartzler, are necessary for the furtherance of his misguided policies.
