I will not vote for my Democratic congressperson-someone I USED to support-in 2010
Advertisements [?]
Anna Eshoo has betrayed her constituents, including me, by putting in a POS amendment that basically denies people the drugs they need (unless they have a LOT of money, of course) to survive.

Furthermore, she has the gall to claim this is "health care reform."

We've been sold out. All of us. Every congressperson who supported this facade of health care reform should be voted out and replaced with people who actually care about their constituents. But that won't happen, because they ensured that the elections themselves would be bought and paid for so that only those who support the establishment-the corporate owners of this nation-have a chance.

One day, I hope, there will be a House full of people like Marcy Kaptur, Dennis Kucinich, Raul Grijalva, Alan Grayson, Anthony Weiner,and Barbara Lee, and a Senate full of people like Bernie Sanders, Al Frankern, Russ Feingold, the late Paul Wellstone, etc. But that is just a dream. Of course, everything starts with a dream.....
