An Open Letter To House Democrats

Dear House Democrats:

Today the AP reported that : “A panicky White House and Democratic allies scrambled Sunday for a plan to salvage their hard-fought health care package in case a Republican wins Tuesday’s Senate race in Massachusetts, which would enable the GOP to block further Senate action.The likeliest scenario would require persuading House Democrats to accept a bill the Senate passed last month, despite their objections to several parts.”

I have no doubt that this is exactly what will happen should Scott Brown win. Here is my question to you, House Democrats:

Why did you run for public office?

I would assume that you ran to make a difference. Late at night, when you were considering whether to run or not, didn’t you tell yourself that this was a way to serve the people of this great country? Didn’t you promise yourself that you would listen to the people? That is what serving the people is all about, after all.

Now you find yourself at a crossroad. It is abundantly clear that the majority of Americans do not like this health care bill. The voice of the people have been loud and certain. From the health care townhalls to the 9/12 march. We all agree that health care needs reform. But this vast overhaul isn’t it.

You know that.

But you have Nancy Pelosi breathing down your neck. You are surrounded by Democrats who will not look kindly upon you if you don’t accept the Senate version and get this thing passed before Scott Brown can stop it.

So, I will ask you again.

Why did you run for public office?

Was it so you could be bullied by leadership to vote against the will of the people? Was it to be bullied into voting for a boondoggle that will surely cost you your job?

No.

You ran for public office so you could represent the people of your state with integrity and honesty.

I suggest you start doing this right now.

Show us the honesty and integrity that we are missing in our politicians and listen to the people.

Vote against this monstrosity and start over. Start over with a bi- partisan, well thought out, non political health bill that doesn’t serve the interests of lobbyists, big companies, unions, or politicians. Start over with a bill that serves the people.

Remember why you ran for office. To Serve the people.
