Voters in Eastern Washington are becoming angry at Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers for spending all her time focusing on Republican Party politics, raising money for herself and other Republicans, and recruiting other Republicans to run for office.  That is not her job as an elected official who is supposed to represent us.  Cathy McMorris Rodgers needs to spend more time listening to her constituents.  Some concerned citizens organized by Washington Citizens Action Network had the below to say to Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers.  However, since she rarely visits Eastern Washington, they delivered the message to one of Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ aids.  For more information on McMorris, visit this site.

Dear Cathy McMorris Rodgers,

We are urging you as you return to Congress post -election to consider the impact of our decisions on lower class and low income families in Spokane and across the State of Washington.  In the up-coming session.  Issues taxes, Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security will all be at the front of the Congressional Agenda.  We have two requests in relation to these issues.  First, we are calling on you to end the Bush era tax break for the 2% of Americans that earn more than $250,000 a year.  Second, we are asking you to avoid changes to Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security.  Specifically, we are asking you to reject any plan to turn Medicare into a voucher to buy private insurance, and to reject any plan to raise the age for getting on Medicare.  We are also calling on you  to reject any plan to turn Medicaid into a block grant for any other scheme where the Federal  Government will give the States a fixed amount of money.  The result would either be a big cut in services or a tax increase by the states or both.   Instead, we should keep Medicare and Medicaid as reliable systems that provide reliable federal funding for Seniors, people with disabilities, and low income families. Big corporations such as Bank of America and City Corp will be spending 60 million dollars on a campaign to push congress into a so called grand bargain.  This bargain would end some tax breaks for the rich while making huge cuts in social security, Medicare, and Medicaid, and vital programs.  This is not a bargain we are willing to accept.  There are two sides to this debate.  U.S. Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers we are asking you today to let us know let us know which side you are on.   Will you choose tax breaks and loop holes for millionaires and CEOs while cutting benefits in the program that support our Seniors, people with disabilities, low income families, or will you  choose to end the tax breaks for those earning over $250,000 and say no to any cuts or changes to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.  We are looking forward to your response.

Sincerely,

Community members and concerned constituents.
