LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Hartzler should make decisions based on constituent needs

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 | 6:00 a.m. CDT

I called the office of U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler, asking her to vote for Rep. Justin Amash's amendment to partially defund the National Security Agency. I was discouraged by a letter she sent to me citing her excuse for supporting an amendment by Rep. Mike Pompeo of Kansas, rather than Amash's amendment.
