Good morning fellow Resistors! Here is my letter to Senator Debbie Stabenow for today. Senator Gary Peters received and identical letter and for Representative Paul Mitchell’s letter I removed the portion on Supreme Court nomination (as the House of Reps doesn’t vote on that) and changed some of the wording to reflect that Mitchell doesn’t agree with some of stances. Be sure to write/call your own reps today. We make ourselves heard not by the volume of one individual’s voice, but by volume in numbers of all our voices!
Dear Senator Stabenow,
I encourage you to take a stand against Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court. I encourage you to filibuster this nomination and take a strong stance against his nomination. At the very least, he needs a vigorous questioning and thorough hearing. While I respect Judge Gorsuch’s accomplishments, I do agree with the comments from Democratic leaders like Senator Chuck Schumer, reiterating that Judge Gorsuch’s presumptive seat belongs to Merrick Garland.
Please continue to fight for a full bipartisan investigation into Trump, his campaign, and his surrogate’s ties to Russia, both politically, financially and things the Russian’s could use to blackmail any in the Trump administration. It is imperative the American people have full knowledge of what has taken place, who lied and when, and who knew what and when.
I encourage you to strongly oppose Trump’s proposed budget. The budget focuses too much on military/defense expenditures and not enough on diplomacy. It cuts needed funds that serve the most vulnerable and needy in this country as well as provide education and development. Those cuts will drastically damage us as a nation able to interact effectively not only with each other, but with the world. The cuts amount to small portions of the budget that make no difference in the enormity of the budget, but their wide spreading impact will be felt by all Americans. And I am appalled at the statements put forth by the GOP as to the ineffectiveness of these programs when there is ample evidence to the contrary. I’d also like to put forth that returns on investment are a terrible and inhumane way to look at programs that benefit humans. Their value as humans is intrinsic, not determined by how much they “give” to society.
Please continue to stand strong against the AHCA and any attempts to repeal ACA. While the program does need some adjustments to make it work best for all Americans, a repeal is not what is best for America.
Thank you for your time.
