Pity the poor citizen of a totalitarian country who appeals to his government for redress of a grievance. The act of challenging the wisdom of those in power by signing a petition has frequently resulted in secret police kicking down doors in the middle of the night to haul the hapless sap off to Siberia or worse.
Thank God that can’t happen in this country (yet). The worst that can happen to you for opening your mouth here is to have your intelligence insulted by a form letter from your senator. Savor this excerpt from Diane Feinstein:
Thank you for contacting me to express your support for repealing the recent health reform law. I appreciate hearing from you and welcome the opportunity to respond.
In 2010, President Obama signed health reform legislation known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA) into law. The ACA will help drive down health care costs for families, reduce the federal deficit, and take significant steps toward ensuring Americans have access to affordable insurance options regardless of their income level or health status. I support the ACA … The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has repeatedly analyzed the fiscal impacts of the Affordable Care Act and found each time that the Affordable Care Act will save the federal government more than $100 billion over a ten year period.
One wonders how long it has been since this form letter was last edited. We understand why she doesn’t mention Senator Max Baucus’s comments about the coming “train wreck.” Maybe that’s in his form letter. Does Harry Reid’s form letter state emphatically that Senators and Congresspersons are not exempt from the Obamacare exchanges and in fact can’t wait to sign up?
The inmates are running the sanitarium!
Here, here...me too. Don't you just love those generic letters sent out.
Big brother did an outstanding job sending guns into Mexico getting a border agent killed. Big brother did an outstanding job siding with Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, Big brother did an outstanding job getting four Americans killed in Benghazi running guns and screwing up a kidnapping attempt on the Ambassador. Big Brother did an outstanding job spying on conservatives using the IRS. Big brother did an outstanding job targeting news reporters who threatened their agendas. Big brother did an outstanding job protecting vital government secrets with Snowden. Someone tell Big sister to shut the hell up!
Form letters are akin to the way that politicians do their jobs. What's worse is, they more than likely don't even write it, they have some incompetent staffer compose the thing and won't even proofread it.
Sort of the way legislation is passed in both houses.
The Congress people are working for the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC. They do NOT Work for you, this is what has been happening all along, just people was, and is ,,not paying attention. Barack Obama is the CEO of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC. also,, he does not care about you or your life, and never will
These are the elites, brainless bunch of SOB's! REMOVE FROM OFFICE!!
Senator Feinstein is just another "Progressive Socialist" who is intent upon turning America into a third world COMMUNIST nation!
