Senator RoJo is really a worthless hack

Here is part of his reply to my letter to him about his "no" vote on the UN Treaty.

"Why would we enable the very human rights abusers - too often with an anti-American agenda - to dictate guidelines and policy to the people of the United States? We should not agree to any treaty that could require American municipalities to subject themselves to an unelected group of United Nations bureaucrats.

Advocates for the treaty have done little to explain how it benefits the American people. The Americans with Disabilities Act is already the world's model for expanding access and protecting rights. Its existence encourages other nations to enact reforms such as the ADA. Our protections are a model because of the prestige of the United States as the world's foremost protector of human rights. They gain nothing from being associated with the United Nations, and linking our law with this treaty diminishes its standing in the world.

Instead of wasting time voting on nice sounding treaties and other feel-good pieces of legislation, the U.S. Senate should begin to seriously address the fiscal challenges facing America. A good place to start would be to pass a budget for the first time in more than three years. "

I asked him how it felt to practically trip over Senator Bob Dole's wheelchair to vote "no".

I loathe this man, and signed my letter as a 'Disgruntled Constituent Did Not, Nor Would Not, Ever Vote For the Likes of Him.'

2. So either he didn't read it or it was over his head. Sounds like a toss-up.

5. Senator Dumbass probably has no idea who Bob Dole is.

Remember how many times he volunteered the information that his daughter is a nurse during the campaign? I wonder if she supports him in this stupid vote.

6. Just got done writing him again

this time about Medicare eligibility age being considered for raising. I said I was sure he'd vote how his Tea Party colleagues told him, but still he needed to hear from his constituents (I said, we, the little people without millions).

I cannot WAIT for him to go. He is a terrible embarrassment to our state.
