Rep. Ros-Lehtinen Ought to Become a Democrat

Ros-Lehtinen Statement on Her Intention To Vote NO on Revised AHCA.

Yes, she’d be one of the most right-wing members of the caucus especially on foreign policy (“Cuba”), but surely her sanity would take less of a beating. She’s already a leader on gay and trans-gender rights. Changing parties would let her vote for the childcare and medical funds her district needs.

Rep. Ros-Lehtinen has been a leader in opposing destruction of Obamacare. Others followed. She has a chance to be a leader on party-switching too.

  1. Just me says:

    I have been a critic of Rep. Ros-Lehtinen for a long time because of her position on the Cuba issue (and some other issues) . But you’re right that she is more or less a centrist. That said, I think she does more good as a Republican than as a Democrat. Her vote would not change the leadership from R to D. But her relatively senior position within the Republican caucus serves (one would hope) as a moderating influence. Whereas, if she were a Democrat, she would just be a “bi-partisan” beard for Republicans on issues where she leans to the right, especially on foreign policy (“Cuba”). Even if her position does not temper the extreme right wing of the Republicans, she, at lease “bi-partisan” beard for Democrats on issues like gay and trans-gender rights.
