We have questions...we need answers. Write YOUR Congressman/!



MEMBERS of the House of Representatives and the Senate,

I would open this letter with a few questions. Questions that I don't expect answers from you, but would be nice if you DID answer;
questions that I can only hope will open your eyes and minds to your constituent's wants and needs.

Whether you be Republicans, Democrats, or affiliated with another political party, you are included.

  1. Do you really think you are working for the People of your districts and our Country, or have you, in fact, been seduced by the many Lobbyists in and around D.C.?

  2. Are you making "trade-offs" with members of other districts that would be of little use to the People, and a waste of their tax money on Pork-Belly projects?

  3. What bills have you written, or promoted, during your tenure in the House or Senate, that was/is productive for the People of your 
district or for the betterment of Our People/Country? (listing of bills can be by Number and Heading)

  4. How do you vote/stand on protection and preservation of our Country's Wildlife? This would include our "creatures, fauna, and flora", sanctuaries, forests, etc.

  5. What bills have you written, or promoted, during your tenure in the House or Senate, that was/is factually helpful to our now-existing and future Veterans, including the homeless?
  6. What bills have you written, promote, and give positive vote that will ensure best answers to our energy crisis: plans that would ensure a shift in our economy to clean energy, prevent climate change, and create a multitude of jobs for existing citizens - your constituents?

  7. How often do you vote for legislation that would give exemptions to big corporations, at an exhorbitant cost to the tax-payer...your constituents?

  8. How often do you decline - or accept - leisure trips, dinners, gifts, and vacations paid by Lobbyists? (on this question, I'd like each of your answer, decline? accept?)

  9. Which of you belong to a committee that investigates private corporations collecting public/personal/private information on all American Citizens - your constituents -  with said private corporations allowing Executive Office employees as "consultants" with full access to the Citizens' information? Said access corrupting the Right To Privacy Laws...

10. Will you be running for re-elections? At what date? (please answer)

11. (for added usage)

Author's Note: Permission is granted for this Open Letter to be used by any reader that wishes to send to their U.S. Representatives and U.S. Senators.

Question[s] 11. and beyond my be added per the reader's suggestion/comment herein. Be civil and purposeful...

A most apt and timely article, Micke. Since we are also have elections very soon, your thoughts are just as applicable here. Thank you. Love and peace to you,

Dear Jackie if every citizen would write like you we would have a functioning congress and senate. Obama is pretending to work for the people but he cannot give us any example. Keep going, now we also have at least a women to choose from. Love Emile

--it is most encouraging to note that someone other than myself loves our great nation enough to register their protests with Congress -- never in the history of our great nation has the Congress been more under the influence of special interest money than today -- never before has Congress more blatantly ignored the wishes of the electorate -- never before have Americans been less represented than today -- to everyone that loves our wonderful land -- take a few moments to call, FAX, e-mail or write your congressmen/women to let them know of your concerns and your displeasure with how they are spending our money and ignoring their charge to defend the constitution and represent the electorate -- and not to be servants to special interest money --when one of our presidential choices refuses to take campaign money from the public, and only is accepting private funds for his campaign, I am very concerned about where his allegiances will lie -- certainly not with the majority and the average member of the electorate -- God bless the United States of America --JMW

I think something every American should do; it's quite a learning experience. And although a few of them actually still remember who voted them into office, most of them today have perfected 'The Art of the Dodge.'

The vast majority of them now have their many assistants spit back computer generated form letters which simply say, "Thanks for the input on this very important issue (never even naming the topic you've written about), and if you are ever in Washington, please stop by for coffee and donuts and we'll discuss it!"

I could sadly wallpaper my den with these.

Congress people write bills? When did they start doing that?
I'm afraid they don't write em.. they don't even read em. They just lend their names to them and sign the ones they are told will make them look good for the next election...and of course the ones that come with big campaign contibutions. The people don't count in Washington.. just their votes. But nice well written thought anyway.

It should had been addressed to the Schmucks of the US Congress! ! !

Any feedback yet Micke, don't wait for any straight answers if any at all. Results from any bill is always a political shuffle no matter how well intended, winner takes all, but I love your style and your attempt, in appreciation and respect, Jasmin Horst
