No to incumbents

I have to take exception to the Editorial Board’s recommendation to re-elect the Fort Worth-Arlington area incumbents to Congress.

Incumbency has bred complacency. My representative votes in lockstep with the House of Representatives leadership, an agenda overwhelmingly pro-big-business with little regard about the consequences to their voting constituents.

I recently read that there are members of Congress who require a campaign contribution before a face-to-face conversation. The current Congress only scheduled 113 days to be in session this calendar year.

It is high time to get their attention by voting them out or reducing their re-election margins to 50.0001 percent.
