    We vote them out. I’m a conservative…not republican nor democrat. I have just moved to Washington State. I’m 68, on Medicare (which scares me), I carry a gun because originally I’m from Texas (we carry). I have taken on 3 issues, Second Amendment, Health care, and replacing our Representatives and Senators and President who are not supporting our constitution

    House Bill titled ‘HR 45, Blair Holt Licensing and Record Act of 2009’. Not another stabb at the law abiding citizen! Please, be kindly reminded of the Amendment II: A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. Please be a staunch rejector to this bill and knock this one into space. I vote and watch this very carefully. We need to be going after the criminals and use the laws that are already in effect. Thankyou and remember: If we like our freedom, thank a Vet!

    Anonymous comments are useless. If you are going to make a statement in a public forum, don’t be a pathetic wimp, take credit for it.

    I read these comments and I think to myself, we were surprised that Homeland Security released a document titled “Right-Wing Extremists”? You guys are all nuts!

    Dive n diva, I’m wondering if you voiced your concern over the Constitution when Bush was in office? He and Cheney were the biggest shredders of the Constitution ever. Not a peep from the right on that. It was crickets.
    How would you like to ditch your scary Medicare and try to get a policy from the private sector? Hah! That would be really scary, you probably couldn’t even get one at any price!

    With respect to H.R.3706 proposing to increase the minimum down payment requirements, eliminate 50% of seller contributions, and eliminate financing of closing costs: I believe the purpose of this bill is to reduce the risk for FHA. This bill may actually be counter productive to this cause as what separates FHA from standard Conventional loans is primarily the reduced downpayment and financing of closing costs. By eliminating these, borrower’s have little reason for using FHA and would simply do conventional loans that currently are going for a lower rate than FHA. Couple this with the fact that it will HURT our economic recovery, I strongly oppose this bill and encourage you to contact your representatives to speak your mind.

    Why are you increasing taxes during a recession?

    Stop killing the economy!

    You and Patty Murray bother me so much… Both of you are lemmings to Jim McDermott, and all three of you love debt and totally enjoy kicking taxpayers right where it hurts the most. Try fiscal responsibility for a change, that’s something to hope for…

    Here’s a problem that is currently going to be a long-term disaster if no fixed.

    Washington State’s union corruption and bullying has become far too often. The union single-handedly lowered revenue and shareholder value of Boeing because of long-terms strikes. The unions in their corruption don’t suffer from other private employee’s 401(K) plummeting in value, because their entitlement pension plans will continue sucking the life and profit out of the company for the rest of their lives, without working a single day after retirement. Not only are the unions destroying the investment value of those who actually invest into the company and grow the economy, but the unions siphon hundreds of thousands (or more?) of dollars into growing pension plans for people not even working.

    The unions single-handedly pushed away Boeing and sent the company to South Carolina. Boeing left to stimulate job growth elsewhere, because in a socialist atmosphere a company cannot survive.

    I propose all Union pension plans be stopped effective immediately.

    Whomever is currently on a union pension plan may remain, the damage has already been done. But it’s not too late to fix the long-term problem. Move the unions to a 401(K) system just like the rest of the employee’s who invest back into the company they work for. Not only does it benefit the company, it also benefits the economy and provides all employee’s an equal opportunity for prosperity in the free market.

    America is free because we have a right to risk and prosperity. The unions are taking this right to choose from the private sector, and they are in turn crippling the economy. It’s really that simple.

    Just think about how much true stimulation our economy would receive if the unions instead skipped the entitlement pensions and reinvested back into their company, and in turn the economy. It would be glorious!

    Hundred bucks’ says Boeing would immediately come back — and grow.

    Now THAT’s job growth!

  • TeaPartyCitizen 03/12/2010 7:21pm

    **I should say all “new” pension plans be stopped, to be more clear.

  • TeaPartyCitizen 03/12/2010 7:36pm

    Senator Cantwell, you have a realistic amount of time to save your career, unlike Murray. If you actually put this plan in process to save the economy, state government savings after less debt from this alone would probably be enough to pay for your socialized health care agenda.

    I’m advocating an irresponsible socialized health care system; I’m trying to paint a picture of what it means for a government to be fiscally responsible. It takes guts and risk to do the right thing, and most importantly not giving in to entitlement programs that decelerate economic growth and move to a socialist government system.

    If you actually put this plan in motion to make it work, it may be enough evidence to show me you do have what it takes to put this economy back on the right track.

    This isn’t a Left/Right thing; this is a Right/Wrong thing. The unions are not doing it right and they certainly are doing it wrong. It’s hurting Washington States employment numbers and the economy. Boeing is proof.

    **I’m “NOT” advocating an irresponsible socialized health care…

  • TeaPartyCitizen 03/22/2010 1:48pm

    The health care bill you voted “Aye” for, H.R.4872 Reconciliation Act of 2010, is unconstitutional and at least 10 states have agreed to file a lawsuit challenging the legislation. The ten states are Texas, Alabama, Florida, South Carolina, Nebraska, North and South Dakota, Pennsylvania, Utah, and the home of your constituents, Washington.

    Your attempt and possible success at taking Washington State’s liberty and relinquishing it to the Federal government is unprecedented, and disastrous for the United States of America. I’m shocked that you are going so far as to sacrifice our freedom to advance a socialist agenda.

    We will never forget what you voted for; you stole our liberty and increased our debt. How dare you!

    Socialism has no place in America, and you should know better but I’m afraid you don’t. Never before have I been so worried about the direction you politicians are taking this country; ten years ago I’d have scoffed at the idea of socialized health care in America.
