Your Local Fed: "A Lifesaver"

I understand that Virginia Congresscritters have a constituency--largely Federal workers.

But this is a bit much:

Accusing Republicans of unfairly targeting federal employees in tax relief legislation, a Democrat lawmaker says many constituents are simply unaware of the “life-saving function” provided by their local “federal presence.”

“Many people aren’t aware of the fact that the federal presence and federal employees in their community is vital and performs a life-saving kind of function that is highly revered and valued,” Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) said Wednesday. “And we need to get that narrative out there in every congressional district and in every state in the union to turn the tide in terms of this negative [Republican] narrative.”

Umnnhhh....I'll take my chances, thanks.
