I called my representative's office this afternoon to let him know that I am unhappy with temporary budget measure that the House passed today. I stated I do not approve of the additional riders which eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood and National Public Radio, and restrict the enforcement powers of the Environmental Protection Agency. I made it clear that I am not happy with the 12 billion dollars in cuts.
I spoke clearly to let him know that there are four voting members in my family, and that we are going to blame the republicans if the government shuts down.
The Senate is not going to approve this legislation, and if they do, President Obama is going to veto it. It's very important that the republicans in the House understand that they are going to be blamed for the government shut down. If you have a republican representative, please call and let him know that you are a voter and that if the government is shut down tomorrow, you're going to blame the republican party and him.
