When someone is elected to high office, they are expected to do certain things. One of those is representing the people who elected them to the office to which they were elected. For Maxine Waters, this means that she should be representing California voters in Congress. You would suspect that would involve being here.
But on one of the most important days in the Congressional calendar, the Stat of the Union address, she won't be. And neither will other leading Democrats.
Democrat supporters do NOT need more protestors. They need leaders who will represent their platform in government. Sitting out just to make a point does not benefit the people who elected them.
“Why would I take my time to go and sit and listen to a liar?” Waters said on MSNBC. “To someone who lies in the face of facts, someone who can change their tune day in and day out. What does he have to say that I would be interested in? I don’t trust him, I don’t appreciate him and I wouldn’t waste my time sitting in that house listening to what he has to say. He does not deserve my attention.”
The answer Maxine..Is because you have been PAID and ELECTED to go and sit there and listen!!! If you are not willing to do even the most basic part of your job, you need to step aside and let someone actually represent your constituents.
