  1. She also voted against ending Obama care with the other democrats, as well as voting to restrict President Trump’s abilities to fight insurrection.

    An avowed Trump hater, this fake Republican publicly refused to vote for Trump in 2016, instead writing in Paul Ryan.

    She was worthless in the Legislature, worthless in Congress, and has the common sense and of a box of rocks.

    This will be her final term in Congress or any other elective office.
