Congressional leaders designed and printed off copies of the Democrats version of the Universal Health Care chart and prepared to mail it out to all of their costituents. Nancy Pelosi and “her crew” are refusing to let these leaders mail the information while trying to pass a “hurry up bill” that will do just that: not let Congressional leaders mail information to AMERICAN CITIZENS!
One of the perks of being a member of Congress is that each lawmaker is allowed to send “franked” — or free — mail, as long as it is related to official business. Members use that ability to send newsletters and legislative updates to their constituents. To ensure that privilege is not used inappropriately, a majority of the bipartisan six-member Franking Commission must approve each piece to ensure it meets some basic guidelines. Mail is blocked only on rare occasions.
How’s that for Transparency!?!?!?!
So, in response to this I wrote a letter to Congressonal Leader here in Texas, more importantly from Tyler, Texas giving him permission to use my tax dollars to mail this information so that all tax paying citizens are well informed of what is going on with OUR MONEY and OUR FUTURE!!!
