  •  Rep. Slaughter, please point out (3+ / 0-)

    that each Republican member of Congress will be voting to take approximately $900 out of the pockets of senior citizens in their district, and hand it directly to the executives of BigPHARMA companies and their shareholders.

    This is personal for many, many senior citizens as you know, who did not get much of a cost of living increase under the Social Security benefit, and just saw you close the donut hole in their Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage.

    This symbolic vote shows what side these folks are on. I cannot believe that my former friend, new Rep. Chip Cravaack (MN-8), would be so brash and thoughtless to tell my former constituents that pharmaceutical profits are more important than their health.

    Thanks for your leadership. Please keep making it personal. American needs leaders who speak up for them.
