56. Comments to Senator Dick Durbin
I went to Dick Durbins website and sent him a message but because I live in Kentucky it would not accept my comments so I'm posting them here.

Dear Senator Durbin,

May I start by saying I used to admire your work in the Senate. Having said that I'd like to comment on an ABC news article I read today about Social Security and the Gang of 6.

It's not searching for middle ground when you have the far right plan of Paul Ryan represented but exclude the far left plan of Bernie Sanders. You will not end up in the middle by using Obama and Ryan as your poles but far to the right of center. Do you think we are all idiots?

I've been a Democrat all of my adult life and I have to say I'm totally ashamed to call myself one today. How do you people sleep at night? There have been no banksters held accountable for what they did to this economy yet the little people are once again asked to make major sacrifices. The politically well connected can torture, rob the treasury and they are handed massive tax cuts and given get out of jail free cards. Where is equal justice under law? We not only have a two-tiered system of justice in this country but we have representatives of the people who don't represent the people but corporations and the top 2%.

My Party is no better than the Republicans and so I will be searching for third party candidates whenever and wherever I can find them. It may take awhile but eventually we will rid our country of this cancer that is corrupting our government.
