So, does Representative Ilhan Omar (D) “hate America”? Should she be sent back where she came from?

Hartzler Statement on House Resolution Condemning President
July 16, 2019 Press Release
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-04) made the following statement regarding House consideration of H.R. 489, the Democrat House resolution condemning President Trump:
“With four weeks of congressional session remaining before our government faces yet another government shutdown, the House of Representatives should focus on the job it was elected to do, not political theater.
“Instead of wasting time passing resolutions condemning the President, House Democrats should focus on the basic fundamental responsibilities of governing, like passing a budget and keeping the government functioning as well as addressing the challenges of illegal immigration, the flow of illegal drugs over our border, and the need for affordable health care. These are the issues I am working on and the American people are pleading with Congress to deal with – not efforts to impeach the President as called for by a growing number of Democrats in the House.
“There is little doubt that we have a loss of political civility on both sides of the aisle, and we are better than this. However, the political theatrics behind this resolution fail to address the urgent problems that the American people are passionately asking us to solve.”

“…House Democrats should focus on the basic fundamental responsibilities of governing, like passing a budget and keeping the government functioning as well as addressing the challenges of illegal immigration, the flow of illegal drugs over our border, and the need for affordable health care…”
Ask Mitch McConnell (r), the Majority Leader in the Senate who won’t allow legislation to come to a vote.
Both siderism? Check.
“…There is little doubt that we have a loss of political civility on both sides of the aisle…”
Representative Hartzler (r) thinks her constituents are stupid. That’s reason enough to vote for someone else in 2020.
