My form email from Ohio's Rob Portman

The man took millions in Russian money through the NRA in 2016.

Dear Tom,

Thank you for taking the time to contact me to express your opinion about President Donald Trump. It's good to hear from you.

Ultimately, we all want our country to succeed. To bring about that success, I believe that I have a responsibility to be an independent voice for Ohio.

I have supported efforts by the Trump Administration to strengthen our military, reform our tax code, create more jobs, reduce unnecessary regulation, combat the growing drug addiction epidemic, secure our border, and modernize our trade ties with Canada and Mexico. I applauded President Trump's choices of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to serve as Supreme Court Justices, and I have supported the Administrationís efforts to defeat ISIS, denuclearize the Korean Peninsula, and negotiate a stronger and more comprehensive agreement with Iran.

However, there are also times when I disagree with the President. For example, I voted against President Trumpís national emergency declaration regarding the humanitarian crisis at the southern border, which would have threatened the system of checks and balances and set a concerning precedent by allowing presidential national emergency powers to circumvent Congressional authority to allocate federal funding. I also disagreed with President Trumpís decision to quickly withdraw troops from northern Syria, which sent the wrong message to our allies and further destabilized the region.

Regarding impeachment, the Senate has the sole power to evaluate the case that has been presented by the House of Representatives. I will faithfully perform my duty and listen to all the facts of the case. However, based on what has been presented thus far, there is nothing that rises to the level of removing of a duly elected president from office.

Our country faces serious challenges, including an epidemic of drug addiction and our growing national security threats. To solve these problems, we need to come together to deliver results and make a real difference in the lives of Ohioans and all Americans. With more than 40 bills signed into law, I have a track record of successfully standing up for Ohio and I look forward to continuing to be an independent voice for you in the U.S. Senate.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact my office. For more information you can visit my website at www.portman.senate.gov. Please keep in touch.


Sincerely,

Rob Portman
U.S. Senator

2. I didn't realize Rob had a sense of humor; "..to be an independent voice..."



It's just so hard to hear that voice when his lips are so firmly planted on Trump's ass.

4. He does have a sense of humor.

" ... of a duly elected president." Really Rob? So being installed by Russia is being
"duly elected?"

3. Sent him emails twice in the last month. No response. Guess he didn't like what I said.

In the past, Iíve gotten bs responses like this one of yours. So frustrating having this jerk as one of my Senators. Especially when my other Senator is the wonderful Sherrod Brown.

5. And he has his emails (when his staff sends them) set up so you can't respond to them.

What kills me is that as a young man Rob Portman paddled the length of the Rio Grande
and yet he still became a dick.

7. Fixed it for him

Dear Tom,

Thank you for taking the time to contact me to express your opinion about President Donald Trump. You should know that unless you are a big money donor, or rabid Republican primary voter, I really don't give a crap what you have to say.

Ultimately, I want to be reelected. To bring about that end, I have become an unprincipled invertebrate who has pledged fealty to the Trump White House. I will not perform oversight and I've outsourced my oath of office, as well as my advice and consent responsibility, to the West Wing.

I talk about opioids because I really don't want to be bothered and it's the kind of thing that shouldn't be controversial or require courage. But, if the Majority Leader doesn't want to advance a piece of legislation, he'll never hear from me.

Please keep in touch my throwing emails into my form-reply black hole, or by leaving a message at any of my unmonitored office phone numbers.

Rob

9. What a pantload of b.s.

All I needed to read was that he applauded Gorsuch and Boofer Boy Kavanaugh, the rapist.
