Take a look at this and just remember elections are in Nov. 2010.
U.S. House & Senate have voted themselves $4,700 and $5,300 raises.
1. They voted to not give you a S.S. Cost of living raise in 2010 and 2011.
2. Your Medicaid premiums will go up $285.60 for the 2-years and you will not get the 3% COLA: $660/yr.
Your total 2-yr loss and cost is -$1,600 or -$3,200 for husband and wife.
3. But not our esteemed representatives in Washington. Over 2-yrs they each get $10,000
4. Do you feel CHEATED?
5. Will they have your cost of drugs - doctor fees - local taxes - food, etc., increase?
They have a raise and better benefits. Why care about you? You never did anything about it in the past. They think your obviously too stupid or don't care.
6. Do you really think that Nancy, Harry, Chris, Charlie, Barney et al, care about you?
SEND THEM THE MESSAGE-- " You're FIRED."
IN 2010 YOU WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO GET RID OF THE DEADWOOD SITTING CONGRESS: (Up to 1/3 OF THE SENATE AND 100% OF THE HOUSE). Pay attention to their voting records and vote anyone out who didn't have Americans' best interests in mind.
MAKE SURE YOU'RE STILL MAD IN NOVEMBER 2010 AND REMIND THEIR REPLACEMENTS NOT TO MESS UP.
