My letter to Traitor Joe

Leslie, from Parsley's Pics, came by and asked me to send an email to LIEberman about his stance on the Medicare buy in. Since he has now changed his story and said he will NOT support it, we need to write, call or get in touch with him or his office and let him know exactly how we all feel about this.

Here is what I sent to Traitor Joe through his web site.. of course like a lot of the Senators he will only accept emails from residents of Connecticut, so you either have to lie on the form or try to contact him another way.

Sen Lieberman,

I voted for you in 2000 when you were on the ticket with Al Gore. Since then you have changed and I am ashamed of my vote.

You are no longer the man you pretended to be then. A proud Democratic Senator from the state of Connecticut. You are no longer respected by your fellow citizens nor are you respected by your fellow Democrats. Is that what you want? Did you want to become an Independent so you could obstruct the agenda of this President and the Democratic Congress? You are certainly doing a wonderful job of just that.

The majority of the population in this country wants the Public Option or the Medicare Buy In.. Even YOU supported the Medicare Buy In just 3 months ago. Do I need to remind you of that? I have the video of it where you stated you supported it and thought it was a great idea.

Yet, now that the majority seems to support it, you have changed your mind. What is your problem. You are becoming either like the Republican's or it is true that you are collecting so much money from the Insurance Companies you don't care what you have to do, you will do anything to kill the Health Care Reform Bill.

I hope you are inundated with emails about this. If I have anything to do with it you will be. I am hoping to pass the word enough to get lots of people to send you letters and let you hear about it.

Thanks for doing all you can to stop something we need in this country. You are truly a Prince of a Man. /Snark Off.

Please stop and think about what you are doing. Do you really want to stop Health Care? Is your job worth it? Do you make enough money from the Insurance Companies to support you the rest of your life and to retain your reputation? I don't think so. You don't have much reputation left. People are already calling you Traitor Joe, that's going to be your name for the rest of your life after this. So go ahead, kill health care.. see how you are treated next.

Thanks.


I hope I got my point across to him, and I hope you will too. Take a few minutes and send him a message or take a few minutes tomorrow to call his office and let him know how you really feel.

Not a problem Leslie.. We have to stick together on this.. it is one of the things we all support and we have to stick it to Traitor Joe.

This is all about his ego. He's just a lousy guy who ought to be kicked out of the caucus. I absolutely detest him.

Just put this up on a comment on a blog re JL:

From TPM today:

"But by the afternoon, Lieberman was praising the Democratic bill and one tea partier had literally put an X through the "Stand With Joe" written on the sign he waved."

So maybe those all those emails are having an effect?

See, this is why I like your blog, Annette.

Very nice letter, Annette. Sadly, the only words that interest Traitor Joe are the ones printed on fat checks from Big Insurance.
