Cornyn Needs to Read This

The Editor's Column
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2007/1/30 2:44:25 (1504 reads)

John McClelland at "My little corner of democracy" has a doozie of a letter to Senator John Cornyn regarding the Republicans upcoming attempt to filibuster an attempt to pass the minimum wage bill without attaching neo-con provisions to help preserve the aristocracy in this country:

Since the minimum wage issue is up for vote again, I decided to write my Senator (I already wrote KBH last year and got a small business sob story). So since I've never actually written Senator Cornyn before, I figured I would try this out on him. Simple and to the point, since I know he is a slow reader. Unfortunately I couldn't draw stick figures for him.

Dear Senator Cornyn,

You will be asked to again consider a vote for the raising of the minimum wage. It is imperative that you allow the vote and discontinue any filibuster against it. It is also imperative that you do not amend the bill. A simple vote on the matter should suffice.

If you will recall, mainstream America voted for change in November. The majority of people wanted new voices in the House and Senate to push forth that change. One issue of change was the minimum wage. It is being demanded by mainstream America, that after 10 years, the wage should be increased. No increase in that amount of time is simply unjustifiable.

Please read the whole thing, then call your Senators first thing on Tuesday morning and urge them to stop fiddlefarting around and get an "up or down" vote on H.R.2
without delay and without amendments of any sort.
