A Letter to My Congressman #PeterRoskam #GOP #RepublicanShutdown #USCongress #DemocraticParty #RepublicanParty #TedCruz #TeaParty
I live in your district and intend to do so for decades to come. I work here, I spend money here, pay taxes here, and obey the law here. I’m starting my family here. I serve the community in my work and try to support it however I can otherwise. I voted for Tammy Duckworth and every Democratic candidate since you took over for Henry Hyde; our ideological differences are significant enough that I am confident that you would never have my vote in any ordinary circumstance. However, you have motivated me to do more than vote for whoever runs against you next. I am going to give them money. I am going to volunteer for them and help organize and sign up new voters just to vote against you. I will not wear a silly hat or wave signs with ridiculous misspelled slogans yet I am confident that my wit will be worth that at least. I am doing this because you have put party ahead of country and need to be removed from your office.
You need to be removed from office so that the Republican Party can be reduced to a minority in the Congress so that the needs of the People are again properly served by their Government. The Affordable Care Act passed through both Houses, was signed into law by the President, vetted by the Supreme Court, and the candidate who ran on repealing it lost by a landslide; your party has voted over forty times to repeal this law but leave crucial legislation waiting for votes and now you have finally shut the government down with your tilting at windmills and kowtowing to ignorant loudmouths. You are a craven incompetent whose major career accomplishment will be your membership in one of the most reviled Congresses of the modern age unless you do your job now.
Do your job,
