"Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. Senate voted 67-33 to clear a procedural hurdle and move to a final vote to pass the federal budget agreement Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) reached with Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) last Tuesday." So here is my letter to express my disdain to the Washington douche sisters (Murray and Cantwell): it is a form letter so I just changed the names. Dear Senator Murray, I have to tell you how disappointed and mad as Hell that my family and I are that you and Senator Ryan have basically alienated and screwed the families that sacrifice every their lives day and are the "Defenders of our Freedoms"!!! I am a 3rd generation Military veteran, which without a doubt, I would have given my life to defend this great country, and this is how you (the elitist in government) have sought to repay us for OUR sacrifices? Shame on you and every other Politician who voted for this defamation of fairness (as you call it). I am ashamed to call you my state representative because you do not represent ALL of your constituents, just the ones who voted to keep you in office so you can vote lock step with your Progressive Liberal party. What you and every other Politician (regardless of party affiliation) in America (federal, state and local) should be concerned with is what "We the People" tell you WE WANT and not what the elitist rich Billionaires want!!! You are there to serve the people and not to do as you wish!!! When the people tell you all that enough is enough then you will be out of public employment. All the deceit and backroom deals are so demeaning to True Americans and we do not trust your resolve to achieve anything meaningful for us. So in closing, I would ask for your resignation and promise that you will never again work in the public sector, because you are not worthy to represent True Americans. Regards and good riddance. Jim ------ Sr., a True American Veteran that votes with a conscience.
