The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“The people I represent are more independent—they want to feel empowered to make decisions that they think are best for themselves and for their families. They don’t like the federal government or the state government interfering with their ability to make those decisions and so they get offended sometimes when the people who live in the greater Seattle area enforce their values on those of us who live in eastern Washington.” – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers
