Waste of Money???!!!!!!!!

We keep getting these political flyers in the mail....I've seen at least 3....that saying something like this...

"THANKS TO CONGRESSMAN MIKE ROSS, 11 MILLION CHILDREN NOW HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE"

We got one for Blanche Lincoln too. This seems like it's a waste of money. It's Paid for by Families USA, Service Employees International Union, The American Cancer Action Network and America's Pharmaceutical Research Companies. Ok PEOPLE....let's get our acts together and stop politicing at a time like this and use our resources more wisely. There are people out there that our going hungry and need essentials and don't care about these flyers. Donate some $$$ to the Red Cross or Food Banks or any other place that can HELP. Who cares who got the children the health insurance....Don't get me wrong...I'm glad they did but our $$ needs to be spent more wisely.

Also, it's a waste of our postal workers time!!!!!!

Ugh...I hate those flyers. What was all that stuff about going green, too? Seems like an awful lot of trees being used....

Mike Ross is the WORST. I can't stand that guy. He just loves to toot his own horn. Blech!

Yeah, I got the same ones from Mike Ross and Mark Pryor. I guess I didn't get my point across in my first letter to Mike. Maybe he needs another one?

Must just be your state - I haven't gotten anything like that. :) And ALL of my reps/senators are Dems. I agree with you - the money could have been spent on better things.

Steph,

We got TWO from Mike Ross and TWO from Blanche Lincoln -- both addressed to Neal (but I'm not sure if we got them on the same day, although I think we might have.) Talk about waste -- right in the trash.
