Enclosed is a tea bag in protest of our out of control government spending. If our representatives allow this to go on, my great grandchildren are going to be paying for the government I helped elect pay for the mistakes. Is progress the nationalization of the banking system, the education system or the manufacturing sector? I and many other Americans see this as either goals or partial goals of the current administration. Why can’t all of our representatives see this stimulus bill as all pork with very few beneficiaries for the American people? What is wrong with cutting government and tightening your belts to see the United States through this crisis. We the people did not create this mess. The government did. Our fault lies where we the people did not stand together and tell you as one voice NO MORE!
We the people require our government to act in the long term interest of our country and to fulfill your oath to uphold the Constitution. Many of you in our government do not want to UPHOLD the Constitution, you want to REVISE it to fit your own personal agenda.
I ask you to do the right thing and keep we the people in mind as you stand for us in government.
