    • On March 06, 2012, by RichsAC - This proves that Representatives Ross and West, favor harming our own American young men, with PTSD that lasts their entire lives, and that they have no compassion for the parents and relatives of our veterans. To sacrifice American lives is senseless in Afghanistan. You all in Congress should be ashamed of yourselves for making our soldiers suffer needlessly. America is not being threatened by them. Wake men and women before it's time for us all to vote on our Representatives not representing our Districts accordingly. In your own poll on this survey today, March 6, 2012, 83% support this Bill and what it stands for. I will be promoting my own media outlet to the good people in Hillsborough, Manatee, Polk, Pinellas and Sarasota Counties. I haven't heard one person say that they are for keeping our soldiers in harms way. Judge yourselves accordingly and try to remember why you are in office and that's because We The People voted you in and can also vote you out. I trust in you ...
