Here is a letter that I will be sending to Chairman Steele. I will be sending to NRCC Chairman Sessions, and to the now infamous Cap & Tax 8. My plan is to hand deliver copies to the Cap & Tax 8. Please join me in sending these letters. They need to know that we are mad as hell and won't take it anymore.
Republican National Committee, Chairman
301 First Street, SE
Washington, DC 20003
Dear Chairman Steele:
I am very disturbed about the Cap & Tax bill that recently passed in the house. As you are aware, this bill is going to be very damaging to pocketbooks of all Americans. As a donor to the RNC I am on your e-mail list. I did not receive an e-mail from you when this bill was going up for a vote. I feel that your office has fallen down on your responsibilities to keep us aware of what is going on.
This bill is nothing more than yet another tax on Americans that we cannot afford. We are being taxed to death and are quickly becoming servants to the government that is supposed to be working for We the People. The congressmen who voted for this bill have forgotten who they work for. Me.
Above and beyond that transgression what is the most disturbing is the fact that this tax would not have passed without the help of 8 so called republicans:
Chris Smith – NJ has had a consistent record of voting with the democrats since they have taken control of the house.
Dave Reichert – WA has many union affiliations and liberal voting record.
Mary Bono-Mack – CA has more liberal leanings based on her voting record.
Mark Kirk – IL plans on running for a seat in the US Senate.
John McHugh – NY voted yes on stimulus package, a badge of shame.
Frank Lobiondo – NJ who wrongly considers himself part of the Reagan Revolution. President Reagan never would have voted for such a bill.
Leonard Lance – NJ ran on a platform of fiscal responsibility. There is nothing fiscally responsible about this bill.
Mike Castle – DE has a liberal voting record. It is time for him to find another line of work, or join the ranks of Senator Specter.
These 8 are an embarrassment to the values of the Republican Party. They have let down the voters of their districts and have let down the party. By passing this piece of legislation they have also let down Americans across the country. While we all realize that you cannot make anyone vote a certain way, you still have power. As re-election campaigns cost money. The funds that are raised by the national party as well as the RNCC need to be cut off for these people. They are not deserving of them.
I realize that this can turn the seats over to the democrats, but let us not be naïve. They are already voting as such anyway. What republicans across the country are requesting is that you find solid fiscal conservatives to run against these people in the upcoming primaries. We have had enough of republicans that have forgotten what the party stands for. We are looking to you for leadership and to find candidates that stand by fiscally conservative policies and have the backbone to resist the arm-twisting that is going on. We are no longer going to accept republicans that are really just democrat light. Our country is heading into a dangerous direction at lightening speed. Please put the money that people like myself has donated to you to better use than to re-elect congressmen that do not have the fiscal interests of the country at heart.
We are putting you, Chairman Sessions, and the Cap & Tax 8 on notice; we are mobilizing. Social networking sites are abuzz with the disgust we have towards the antipathy the party is showing towards our concerns and values. The tea parties will continue; and make no mistake they are directed at you as much as the democrats. Please advise the house members that they need to forgo the Dove Bars that are being given out in the speaker’s office and concentrate on getting the country’s fiscal house in order.
Just a Conservative Girl.
CC: Pete Sessions, Chairman NRCC
