Would like to compliment Dr. Brik McDill on his column in Tuesday's Californian ("We deserve some answers from McCarthy". But, how does one even reach Congressman Kevin McCarthy in order to pose any questions. Like, why he seems to vote against Democrats and not for the people that elected him? And then, how can one force him to even answer these questions? It seems that the ruling party members feel entitled to play the "three monkeys" (hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil). They have foggy memory whenever they are asked to explain any of their actions.

I would like to hope than a different smiley face may be elected this next go-round, but that is very unlikely with the divisive mentality of politics today.
