A ‘thank you’ to our elected officials


This is an open letter I sent to our three glorious leaders, Rick Larsen, Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray about their vote on tax cut bill:

Thank you for voting to keep the government from confiscating money from me and my family. We wouldn’t want to take a chance on hurting congressional perks, touching your pork barrel projects or encouraging the corruption. We need to keep expanding government because us mouth breathers and knuckle draggers out here in Realville would just frivolously spend the tax break on stupid things like food, electric bills, or even — gasp — a new winter coat.

It’s heartening to know you are watching out for the Democrats at the expense of constituents. We wouldn’t want to cross Chucky and Nancy; they might cancel your cafeteria card.
