lots of talk on the morning news shows this a.m. Reps vs. Dems – up coming election etc. etc. etc. Repubs say America wants the Dems out and the old government back (find that hard to believe).
To me the Dems have always been for the people – to me they were always the lesser of two evils. I think that what we need to do now is focus on all the Dem. senators on the importance of Tier V or additional weeks. We need to let Them know what we are thinking and how adamant we are that they grow some big ones and start shaking things up in Congress. We have to get it across to them that in order to win in November, they need to start fighting harder for the unemployed. Here is the letter I faxed to Reid, Pelosi, Obama, Whitehouse, Durbin and Sherrodd Brown. We have to stress that they will have the Dems backs come November.
Let the Republicans make fools of themselves by campaigning on repealing health care, financial reform and whatever bills have helped the American people.
Let them dig their own graves.
As I previously wrote, the Dems are the lesser of two evils.
Congress needs to vote and pass the bill to extend unemployment benefit deadlines. This is imperative to the American unemployed.
Democrats need to fight to retain their seats their seats in this upcoming November election. It is extremely important that the Republicans do not have the opportunity to once again bring this country to ruin. The Democrats need to exhibit some strong-arm maneuvering before then.
The unemployed need a strong-will, fearless democrat to pen a bill to create a Tier V or to add additional weeks of benefits to help the 4 million+ unemployed exhaustees in this country. NOW is the time to show the country that the Democrats are FOR the people, and that they will be fearless and determined to help those that need help. NOW is the time to give another lifeline. NOW is NOT the time to back down and say it will be too much of a fight. NOW is the time for job creation. I would much rather be employed, but until there are enough jobs for everyone, we need a life-line. We need some old fashion whooping and hollering from the Democrats to show the Republicans that they have no fear, only dedication for the people of this great country.
Then we need some old fashion, butt kicking, fist shaking, foot stomping, no fooling around debates to get this passed. We need the fierceness of Teddy Kennedy (God bless his soul) to light the fire in Congress and reveal just who the Republicans are and what they stand for. Not the people, that’s for sure.
If this gets done, you will have the voters behind you every step of the way. The unemployed, their friends, family and neighbors will be behind you 100% come November. If nothing is done, their is a very strong possibility that come November, it will be a Republican majority in Congress.
And heaven help us all if that happens.
