Let’s do it, Congressman

After voting in Congress for the spending package that President Trump now calls a “disgrace,” and after failing to object to the pitifully-low $600-per-person stimulus payment that Republican Congressional leaders insisted on for months, Congressman Cline has dutifully fallen into line with Trump by supporting a $2,000-per-person payment.
