Rep. Grimm (R-NY) who were you elected to serve?

“The true hypocrite is the one who ceases to perceive his deception, the one who lies with sincerity”
~Andre Gide


A letter to my Congressman
Dear Rep. Grimm (R-NY), as a life long Republican I am extremely disappointed and unhappy that you voted for the Ryan plan. The Ryan plan is an attack upon the working people of America and an attack upon medicare which has been a crucial component any person over 65's health care program. If the government could bargain for better rates with big pharma health care costs could come down. If we didn't give 40 billion dollars to a hugely profitable oil industry we would lower our deficit. Their are many more ways of solving the deficit problem but not by taking it from working Americans.

Why do we need to lower taxes on major corporations who barley pay taxes as it is? Why do we need to cut taxes on the rich, whose current tax rates are lower than they have been in 20 years?
Who were you elected to serve? The people or the rich, the corporations, big pharma, or the oil industry? The people are not fooled. As Lincoln, also Republican, said "you can fool all of the people some of the time but you can't fool all of the people all of the time".

The GOP does not protect the rights of the poor, union workers, people of color, children, special needs Americans, senior citizens, the disabled, or

A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned how to walk forward.
~Franklin D. Roosevelt

Rep. Ryan's proposed bill and GOP calls for tax cuts for the rich will destroy the lives of millions of Americans.
The GOP (gay old party) wants to gut Social Security and destroy Medicaid while giving huge tax breaks to the richest Americans. How do we pay for these tax cuts? We take it from the poor, the senior citizens, children, disabled, minorities and people of color, the least among us thereby enriching the wealthiest Americans on the backs of everyone else.
Lynden Baines Johnson said when he signed the Medicare bill. "No longer will older Americans be denied the healing miracle of modern medicine. No longer will illness crush and destroy the savings that they have so carefully put away over a lifetime so that they might enjoy dignity in their later years. No longer will young families see their own incomes, and their own hopes, eaten away simply because they are carrying out their deep moral obligations to their parents, and to their uncles, and their aunts. And no longer will this Nation refuse the hand of justice to those who have given a lifetime of service and wisdom and labor to the progress of this progressive country."
The GOP calls for tax cuts for the richest Americans, and the rest of us must pay for it. Wake up America, don't give in to those greedy robber barons. Ryan's bill will impoverish us all while enriching the richest Americans at our expense. This is war, them against the rest of us. It is time to throw all the Right Wing scum bags out of office. The GOP does not protect the rights of the poor, union workers, people of color, children, special needs Americans, senior citizens, the disabled, or anybody except the corporate power elite and the richest Americans. As for the rest of us, it is Fuck You. That is their attitude. It is time that we as Americans tax payers and voters throw those pieces of shit out of office. It is time that America no longer be run by rich old white men for the sole benefit other rich old white men.

The rich and powerful want all the tits.

If we are not careful, capitalism will self-destruct. We will destroy it as the companies have no conscience and do not really compete. They are so big they can't go broke, so they simply acquire everything.

How do I get on this gravy train. What a rip off. Congress has given these corporations every tax break possible and they make billions but the GOP is attacking teachers and unions over health and pension benefits and attacking seniors over medicare and social security. Is there a little hypocrisy and injustice here? Those corporations and the nations wealthiest Americans should pay their taxes like I do, as does every teacher, union worker and senior citizen. The rich and powerful accuse the middle class, working poor and union workers of feeding of the government tit but the truth is the rich and powerful want all the tits.
