AN OPEN LETTER TO CONGRESSWOMAN CAROLYN McCARTHY
Because of your "Yes" vote for the "Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi Health Care Bill", you have shown yourself as NOT being representative of what the voters of Garden City and Mineola want this country to be.
The people of Garden City and Mineola yearn for a smaller government...a less obtrusive government. (They certainly do not favor the one that you have helped to nurture in the past, nor the one that you are currently putting forth today)
Because of your voting record, America has become burdened with an unsustainable debt, and an overly complex bureaucracy...both of which have grown to unmanageable proportions. You must bear some of the responsibility for bringing this about. You should have spoken up. You never did.
So...given that you have betrayed your constituents, given that you have never spoke up for them, and given that the voters of Garden City and Mineola have a long memory, it is my humble opinion that you will be replaced this election day with a representative, who unlike yourself, will listen to his supporters, cast his votes accordingly, and speak up on their behalf.
