Open Letter to Senator Snowe

Dear Senator Snowe,

You will be in the discussions this week about the tax bill. I'm begging you to vote against the bill as written.

In this time of war, and when our economy is further burdened by the continuing aftermath and rebuilding after six powerful hurricanes in the last few years on the gulf coast, these funds are needed to keep our economy going.

The devastation of the gulf coast disasters prompted unprecedented cuts to needed services. In a time of war you cut the funding to our veterans hospitals and veterans benefits. Last week you voted to require the most vulnerable segments of our society to suck it up and bear the burdens of disaster and an illegal war. Now you are considering reducing further the amount that the richest ten percent of our society contributes.

The very persons who are making obscene profits on human misery in the middle east are going to get another free ride.

Shame Shame Shame Shame Shame.

Can I say it any clearer? Shame on all of you, if you vote to further cut needed funds out of our budget. Please vote no on these tax cuts.

Thank You

sbgypsy-- That is so well done. You've written it so well. I feel the tide is turning right now. I read that Snow is objecting to this bill as written. I'm guardedly optimistic there will be changes. With this and ANWR, it would be a stunning defeat for the bastards.

Hey, Rexroth's Daughter,

Thanks, Gosh I hope she votes against. I don't know whether she cares about opinions that come from outside her state, but I sent that to her this morning. Made me feel better, anyway.
