Hey Dan, how about controlling the cost of medicines. Why no outcry when cost containment for meds was removed from the Unaffordable Health Plan?

Might you have friends in the Pharmacutical business. I suppose not.

Unfortuneatly chief, he has no power to do so. Neither does any part of the federal government. Nor should we want them to have it.

That being said, it's never stopped our federal government before.

Is it ‘re-election’ time?

Otherwise, why would the ‘dapper-dan’ be snaking and slithering around ?

Grubbing for votes from the very people he fails to represent according to their wishes and beliefs.

Grubbing for votes from the very people he fails to answer by email.

Grubbing for votes from the very people he fails to talk with on the phone.

Grubbing for votes, when, he never found it necessary to hold ’town-hall meetings’

like bart Stupak, did,

on a regular basis no less…

NOT JUST AT ELECTION TIME.

‘dapper-dan’ usually slithers around the area, unannounced,

usually to infatuated, gullible press types.

‘dapper’ is best characterized by his actions, not what he says.

'dappers' actions don't amount to much, but

what matters, is what 'dapper' didn't do for his constituents.

Hey press manager, HERE’S A POLL FOR YOU !

Ask the question:

should dapper run for another term?

SAY…

WE,

NAY!

Has anyone check their calendar?

Like our proverbial seasons,

flowers and buds appear at their appointed hour in the spring, prosper and die.

Like the proverbial seasons, politicians make their once at election time on their begging tour,

and at their appointed hour, show their face;

a face not remembered well, except when election time rolls around.

Is it ‘re-election’ time … again ?

Is ‘dapper dan’ in the neighborhood, un announced … again

How's is health?

Look's like his shirts are getting bigger, not smaller.. during the last three years...

apparently he's better at filing his pie-hole than representing his constituents,

otherwise, he'd be slimmer running back to them for 'consultations'.

“who ever the Teamsters Union is rooting for, Im going to vote the opposite!”

'Statements' like the above are all well and good…

good for people who don’t like the idea of paying working men and women decent wages, that allow workers to pay their taxes, pay for their family’s food, utilities, healthcare, education and a roof over their collective heads.

Otherwise,

if the person who made the ’statement’ above, is a person working for wages,

one or two poor paying jobs,

the utterance is completely inane,

as in ass.inane.
