“You know our governors are under great stress,” said Waters. “The protests that have been organized, the protests trying to intimidate our governors to open up everything are protests where the people participating in that should be ashamed of themselves. They should not be encouraged in any way.”
“So we’re doing everything that we can give support to our constituents, to our citizens, to the people who work every day, who have families to take care of.” Waters added. “So if we do that, this will support our states and our governors and not having to open back up. So that you know the small businesses that are in direct contact with people — nail shops, beauty shops, barbershops, flower shops — these are people in touch with folks every day, and they’re risking their lives, and we don’t want them opened up. ”
The governors are under stress? No, the people are under stress. Lives are being destroyed, the economy is being torpedoed, by the totalitarian lockdowns. And yet Waters sides with the governors.

Waters’s Immense Wealth and Hypocrisy
On June 24, 2017, Waters held a town hall meeting at the Nakaoka Community Center in Gardena, California, and did not permit anyone who lived outside of Waters’s 43rd Congressional District to be admitted inside the facility; such individuals were instead relegated to an outdoor “overflow space.” In light of these facts, it is worth noting that Waters herself does not reside in her own 43rd Congressional District, which is one of the poorest districts in the state of California. She owns a $4.8 million mansion in the upscale Hancock Park section of Los Angeles, several miles outside of her District.
