    I like your manner of speaking, however, in reference to the stats on the Iraqi war, I am appalled that NO one is addressing the deaths at home. 3 5 0 0 on the highways ARE KILLED AT HOME. No one is parading in the streets over that. In regard to deaths HERE at home there are between 40,000- 12,000 annually killed with weapons on our streets and in our homes. No one is parading in the streets over that. Domestic violence is killing children and family members here at home and were worried about the streets and infrastructure and military deaths to bring to a middle east country the hope of a better way of life and as well support their oil industry while our own industries are suffering. Illegal immigration has been a disgrace to the point that the American Citizen is having their accounts drawn down by the workers who take jobs, the babies born for free, the medical procedures done for nothing, and the other problems of drugs and criminal behavior. It is now Latino on Latino crimes as well as on the average citizen run down by Illegals who do not have Driver’s Ed. and cannot read our road signs and yet there are those in government positions who want to issue driver’s license to unqualified drivers. Do you go to any other country and demand such services?? Do you go to any other country and try to VOTE IN their electrions???

    I think We all know you are doing what you can, it must be a lonely life you people are livening like a movie star with out the glamour just the paparazzi and the only time someone call’s on you is for something but I think this is the type of life you asked for, you need help just like every one in this ! Good luck getting us out of this one!

  • gkdaw_usa 07/15/2008 3:58pm

    I think if one or more of the senators have a vested interest in Oil or alterative energy, they should not be able to vote becouse they have a vested interest in one or the other and it will be the only way to get a real honest VOTE in Congress.

  • ejohnson777 07/27/2008 3:02am

    Wake up Debbie. It’s time to do your job. Election time WILL come again.

    Please consider the other approaches to solving this financial crises. The American people should not have to put our dollars into the corrupt financial markets. I hope you will not support the emergency economic stabilization with your vote tonight. No one seems to want to look at the alternatives. It seems everybody want to obliterate the American Government financially. It looks like the govt will give all control to Federal Reserve Bank and the National Treasury. It reminds of the quote by Rothchild many years ago that says something like If I control a countries money then I care not who makes the laws. Is this what America has come to?

  • gman86428 10/02/2008 3:06am

    It was reassuring to me that you “broke ranks” last night and voted against this bailout legislation. It looks like too few senators are there for we the people. Your fellow senator did not listen to us. That is too bad. There are many, like myself that are using this as an acid test for their votes this November. Thank you once again for voting against the bailout!

  • brenden42 11/17/2008 3:25pm

    Michigan needs emergency unemployment passed now, people are broke, cannot find jobs. I know the workers didn’t ruin this state. So while your on vacation, we’ll wonder where are next meal is coming from. THANK YOU!

  • pthorp 02/06/2009 10:24am

    I am ashamed that D. Stabenow is from Michigan. She is speaking of an attempt to infringe on our first ammendment rights. She is actually afraid of what the public knows. She doesn’t want us to know the truth of what the congress is doing with our money.

    How many zeros in a billion?

    This is too true to be funny.
    The next time you hear a politician use the
    word ‘billion’ in a casual manner, think about
    whether you want the ‘politicians’ spending
    YOUR tax money.

    A billion is a difficult number to comprehend,
    but one advertising agency did a good job of
    putting that figure into some perspective in
    one of its releases.

    A. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

    B. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

    C. A billion hours ago our ancestors were
    living in the Stone Age.

    D. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.

    E. A billion dollars ago was only
    8 hours and 20 minutes,
    at the rate our government
    is spending it.

    While this thought is still fresh in our brain…
    let’s take a look at New Orleans .
    It’s amazing what you can learn with some simple division.

    Louisiana Senator,
    Mary Landrieu (D)
    is presently asking Congress for
    250 BILLION DOLLARS
    to rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number…
    what does it mean?

    A. Well…. if you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans
    (every man, woman, and child)
    you each get $516,528.

    B. Or… if you have one of the 188,251 homes in
    New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787..

    C. Or… if you are a family of four…
    your family gets $2,066,012.

    Washington , D. C

    HELLO!

    STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?

    Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago…
    and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.

    We had absolutely no national debt…
    We had the largest middle class in the world…
    and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

    What happened?
    Can you spell ‘politicians!’

    And I still have to
    press ‘1’
    for English.

    I hope this goes around
    U S A
    at least 100 times

    What the heck happened?

    Michigan Voters can get rid of this toxic asset through the use of Michigans State Constitution Article II Section 8 Recall Petition. Why wait till 2012, do what Michigan needs to be rid of this toxic asset. Begin the recall petition now

    Senator Stabenow, You were born and raised in Michigan. You have made the statement that you believe in traditional American values. I read that your voting record is 100% with party line. So my question is how are you going to vote on HR45. We will all be watching, and so will the criminals, as if this bill passes the criminals will be happy. Please do the right thing……vote HR45 down!!

    Senator Stabenow, I am Taxed Enough Already. Why does your party insist on “spreading the wealth?” I worked hard in high school, college, and to get my job. I don’t see how my money under your party’s policies can give my money away to those that didn’t, don’t, and never will work hard for it.

  • doberman2 06/25/2009 6:17pm

    Hey, Deb. Are you actually going to help sell us out to SOCIALISM???
    This is AMERICA!!!If you and your pals in DC want SOCIALISM, go live somewhere else!!!
    WE DON’T WANT IT!!!

    I realize that you WILL VOTE WITH YOUR PARTY ON THIS ONE ANYWAY, BUT vote no on the national energy tax!!!

    STOP IT!!!
    YOU ARE ROBBING US BLIND!!!

    Can’t wait ‘till TEXAS or VERMONT ceceeds from this GOD FORSAKEN union.
    As soon as that happens, I’m out of here!!!

  • paddy51 08/25/2009 4:57pm

    Senator Stabenow: It is very obvious that you do not care what your constituents want. You vote with your party 96%. Do you not have the courage to do what is right for our Country? WE DO NOT WANT MORE GOVERMENT CONTROL! Vote NO on this Socialist Health Care Bill, and NO on SB2099. You will be voted out of office if this gets pushed through. p nielsen

  • oldman 08/26/2009 7:30am

    We are waiting for your “Town Hall Meeting” HR3200 – read the official summery, spent most of the week reading the actual bill – Queations : Why not fix medicare? Why did Congress and the senate opp out ( page 50-51) You guys should be at the front of the line to sign up. Where is John Dingell he should be all over television touting hoiw he will be the first to sign up! That is the only way (as I see it) you will get the People behind this mess. And to think just in Sept and October Medicare was going broke and Obama was saying the “Folks” were going get health care like the congress and the senate.

  • DetroitDan64 09/11/2009 5:24am

    What the heck are you doing? How could you vote for Cass Sunstein? He is so out of touch with reality and mainstream America it is unbelievalbe. He believes,

    “A government that is constitutionally required to offer each citizen a “useful” job in the farms or industries of the nation.

    A country whose leadership intercedes to ensure every farmer can sell his product for a good return.

    A nation that has the power to act against “unfair competition” and monopolies in business"

    Where is that in our Constitution? Who is he to tell someone where they can work or will work or how to go to makret or where?
    You need to get your act together and read the Constitution of the United States and the Federalist Papers. If you need a copy I can send you one. Start upholding the Constitution, you swore to protect and the rights of teh individual to live our lives in without government interference. Represent the people of Michigan!! NOT your Liberal Socialist Agenda.

  • toray99 10/12/2009 9:53am

    Anyone reading these comments needs to ask themselves why would these senators support unfair trade policies with third world countries ? If you think the employment is bad now in the country and michigan just wait till these guilty feeling liberals pass cap and trade Oh and that health bill too These liberals are just creating more dependent people on government handouts
    What is a so called green job anyways? Michigan lost 670,000 jobs already with another 300,000 to go within the next year. Granholm is touting creating 40,000 in the next 11 years. Are you kidding? Do the math math doesn’t lie is always logic Stop with the liberal handouts that just create slaves for your party Get some real fair trade policies going What was the tradeoff with china anyways buy our junk AAA rated bonds and we give china all our technology and manufacturing jobs ?
