Contact Congress Republican & Democrat

Posted: 10/05/2007 by Floyd in Labels: , ,

Contact any of your Representatives who are in Congress and the Senate to because if we can get the over-ride through Congress then the Senate will be next, first of all let me say that you have heard from many how the Democrats are weak and that they have no spine and to tell you the truth sometimes I believe it myself. This is a fight that American working families can not lose, this program has worked perfect for the last 10 years and has helped millions of families children and now they want to say it costs to much. which brings me to the Republicans how much spine do they have? If Bush says jump they jump and if Bush says sit, then they sit, I know you Republicans out there did not elect a bunch of lap dogs, if we want a nice lap dog I'll send my Pug to Washington.

In seven years, George W. Bush has used his veto power four times, this latest time against SCHIP, the bipartisan bill to provide health insurance for poor, uninsured children. This is the man who touts himself as "compassionate," and who allegedly cares about unborn children? This is the president who inherited a balanced budget, an incredible surplus budget, the president who wants to make permanent his tax cuts for the rich, the president who has asked for and received almost $800 billion for this quagmire in Iraq, and now he cares about a $35-billion program that will fund itself over five years and vetoes it because it's too expensive?

Tell Congress to use some of the war billions being borrowed from China to help finance the disaster built on lies and use some of that money to help care for our own, Congress needs some grit in their craw both Democrats and Republicans by overriding this veto of a program that has been tried and true for 10 years and help the children of poor working families of this country, the Republican candidates have already got on board with the veto and half of them do not even know what the program is, the article in the Times leads me to believe that the Republicans are trying to appeal to their base?? I wonder who that could be maybe corporate America, I know it is not the average Republican out there, the average Republican are working men and women, so this appealing to the base don't wash here.

Paul Krugman said it best when it comes to health care conservatives are such jokers, Bush's response back in July was thus; “I mean, people have access to health care in America,” said Mr. Bush in July. “After all, you just go to an emergency room.”
And Republican disillusionment with Mr. Bush does not appear to signal any change in that regard. On the contrary, the leading candidates for the Republican nomination have gone out of their way to condemn “socialism,” which is G.O.P.-speak for any attempt to help the less fortunate. So once again, if you’re poor or you’re sick or you don’t have health insurance, remember this: these people think your problems are funny.
Join me in signing the petition to Congress and demand an over-ride on this veto that effects millions of working class American children.
