    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!

    Please reject HR 45. Chewing away at Second Amendment is one more step to socialism. Let’s not totally destroy the fabric of our country in one administration. “We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.” —Thomas Jefferson

    PLEASE -— REJECT………..House Bill titled ‘HR 45, Blair Holt Licensing and Record Act of 2009’. This is yet another stab at the law abiding citizens of this great country! Please, read and adhere to the 2nd Amendmentof our Constitution: “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 stand up for your contituants and reject this bill soundly!!!! I vote and am watching this as well as all other issues very carefully. We need to be going after the criminals and use the laws that are already in effect. This bill will only hit the “law abiding citizens” while the criminals still hold their AK 47s. Thank you and remember: We the People Surround you and promise you will be voted out if you don’t start representing the people that hired you in the first place!

    Her office refused to take action on fraudulent Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) posted on corporate websites. Sen. Murray is ranking member on Dept of Labor oversight committee thus is best placed to oversea OSHA. Her aide initially was excited in this method of improving worker safety and information gathering when he thought it might have started under President Bush, but when he found out tha the problem started under the Clinton Administration he dropped their support and wouldn’t return calls. Issue: OSHA admits it does not have jurisdiction over MSDSs posted on corporate websites – nobody does. Thus some companies are falsifying MSDSs to claim their products are “nonhazardous” when in fact they may be VERY hazardous (per OSHA 1910.1200 © definition. This is a serious issue that has contributed to the death of workers.

    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.

    Prolific, yet ineffective. Where I work, we fire people like that.

    Just sayin.

    Time for Murray to go. She does what she’s told by a party and is selling out the nation as a result. She votes in favor of every tax increase, for more government and more intrusive government! I don’t know what agenda she’s pushing, but know it’s not an American one. Plus she has a price, how pathetic.

    Senator, you voted for the bailout. When you did that you lost my vote. I don’t like even one of the “too big to fail” organizations you chose to spend my money on. How many of you are getting paid for the sweetheart bank deal?

    You and Maria Cantwell 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…

    November 2010 is coming up soon!!!!! I can’t wait!!!!

    Guess who I’m NOT voting for? Just take a guess?

    I hope Arthur Coday or Don Benton run against you; I would love to see them debate you over fiscal responsibility! Oh man, that would be awesome.

    Art Coday would totally school you over health care, too. He’ll teach you a thing or two about the negative side-effects of a socialist health care system. And the voters, hopefully, we will show you the door…

    It has been common for employers in dire straits to abscond with the 401(K) resources. What makes you think union pensions would be secure there?

  • TeaPartyCitizen 03/12/2010 7:14pm

    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 7:31pm

    Patty Murray, if you actually put this plan in process to save the economy, state government savings in tax revenue from this alone would probably be enough to pay for your socialized health care agenda.

    Not that 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.

  • TeaPartyCitizen 03/22/2010 1:46pm

    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.

    Exactly how is it unconstitutional? What real freedoms are being removed? You still have the right to free speech, the right to practice whatever religion you want, the right to have a free press, the right of habeas corpus, the right not to be discriminated against, the right to vote, and many many other rights protected clearly in the Constitution.

    The CBO indicates this bill will reduce the debt over time.

    Socialism does have a place in America, or don’t you use the public highway system, the water utilities created and mandated by the federal government, or the police or firefighters who are paid through the community, the cheap gas you have compared to other countries, the electrical grid, funded in part by our government, dams created in Washington, built by the government for the people, subsidies from the government to grow crops, the local park, the local library? Wow… guess what? ALL Community driven, tax funded, socialist features.

    How dare you compromise your constituents.

    John Boener said in his address to the Floor on Sunday night said, “Shame on each and every one of you who substitutes your will and your desires above those of your fellow countrymen. Around this chamber, looking upon us are the lawgivers. We break the ties of history in this chamber. We break our trust with Americans.”

    Many will be watching and looking for men/woman who exemplifies: Honesty, Reverence, Hope, Thrift, Humility, Charity, Sincerity, Moderation, Hard Work, Courage, Personal Responsibility, and Gratitude.

    John Boener doesn’t speak for America. He speaks for his state and his state alone and I would like it very much if he were to just do that. He doesn’t speak for me, nor my family, nor many of my friends. He doesn’t speak for many of those who are in favor of reform, nor for those who are now happy the whole thing is done. He definitely doesn’t speak for you klassylady25 as he is not your senator. If you don’t like what your current senator does, vote for someone else. If that someone else doesn’t get elected, you are free in this country to move to a state that has more of your values.

    Glen Beck is an Entertainer, all he wants is ratings and he doesn’t care one whit about you or America. He only cares that he gets his paycheck and that he keeps his job. So he is willing to say whatever he has to in order to keep doing that.

  • DaleLambert 03/24/2010 3:43pm

    I for one am glad that our senator has voted for reform and understands that this issue is not black and white but shades of gray. Keep up the good work.
