I know that bad political strategies in Iowa are making caucus goers angry and pushing people to vote for a certain candidate. As Senator Sessions has stated, please pick your candidate wisely. This is from a friend in Florida:
Before you vote or caucus, here’s an important fact you need to consider. When Rubio was running for the Senate, before he was well known, he did a Tea Party event in Lakeland, Florida. I met him face to face and explained that we were all angry because our representatives in DC were ignoring our calls and their staff was not taking down our comments, names and addresses. Rubio looked me in the eye and shook my hand and promised to ALWAYS listen even when we disagreed and to set up an office that heard our voices.
To me a promise is a promise especially when you shake on it. Rubio has forgotten his promise to me and the millions of people who phone banked, donated, and voted for him. When we call his office in DC, his staff NEVER takes our information on key issues like education, and they can’t even state his position on the bills. They get irritated that we are insisting – they act like we are a bother. There is obviously NO communication between Rubio and his staff and between his staff and constituents.
Go to Rubio’s presidential website and try to find a phone number to call the campaign so you can ask your question to a live person. You can’t because there is no phone number to the campaign. If you call his senate offices, they refuse to get you a number to the campaign because it breaks campaign rules.
Is Rubio a man who wants to listen to WE THE PEOPLE? I think not – actions speak louder than words. If we are going to remove Obamacare, Common Core and other key legislation and replace it with who knows what, we NEED a president who listens to us so that we do not get put into a worse situation. It’s not enough to say I’ll take it away. Will these candidates continue to allow the insurance companies to frontload $6000 to $12,000 deductibles that middle class Americans can’t afford? How will they get doctors who have sold their practices and now work for hospitals to become independent again so our healthcare decisions are made between a doctor and patient? Will they remove patient satisfaction surveys as a means of reimbursement – questions like has your pain been controlled with a required answer of always has resulted in patients being given IV dilaudid and other narcotics resulting in addiction and overuse to avoid getting in trouble and losing money from bad survey results. They say they will remove Common Core and put education to the state and local level but these school boards and state legislatures have invested millions of dollars and will continue these programs so how will they affect change or will we be stuck fighting at the local level with no change?
From my personal experiences, Rubio does NOT keep his word and will not listen, and therefore no one in my family can support or vote for him.
I can’t call Rubio’s campaign to get important answers, and Bush, Kasich, Carson, Cristie, and Huckabee do not have phone numbers either. Trump, Cruz, Paul, Santorum, Fiorina and even Gilmore in last place respect voters enough to have a phone number listed.
Your vote counts this time, please support a candidate who will hopefully listen and consider our lives as they take education, healthcare and other important issues in a different direction. We can’t end up with another president and congress who write thousand page bills and don’t listen to our concerns. We only win if our voices are heard and our family’s lives are improved.
Don't let FOX choose our next president!!!
