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

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.

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.

Way to go senators stabenow and levin Give GM and chrysler bail-outs (our tax dollars) to build brand new manufacturing plants in mexico china, brazil etc Good plan

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 ?

I resent the fact that you say Republicans are playing GAMES!!! That was not only wrong, but rude. Talk about the pot calling the Kettle Black!

Senator:
The health care bill is not what is needed. The bill will cost tax payers directly with higher insurance rates, taxes, and inflated national debt. It is obvious that the people who you represent don’t support it. This blatant disregard by you shows that we have become a country without representation, and a new revolution could happen(1776 all over again). To the point if the health bill does cost me more,(as all the Democrats say it will not) then you will need to pay my share, because you’re knowingly lying and trying to deceive me, and all your constituents! Oh I am a Independent voter, so I owe no allegiance to any political party or ideology just as George Washington said when he left office.

jmagee77 03/25/2010 11:44am

Senator,
As a Michigander, I must say you are out of touch with the people of this State.
You let the broken down Unions that are no more than a modern day Mafia influence you. Supporting the Health Care bill when majority (that means more than half) of Americans opposed the bill.
You seem to forget that you work for the people and not the other way around.
This is more than one vote you and your party have lost.

SENATOR,

NOW THAT THE PEOPLES U.S.CONGRESS HAS DOCUMENTED OUR UNJUST AMERICAN JUDICIAL SYSTEM,HAVE YOU HEARD IF THE U.S. SUPREME COURT KNOWS WHERE AND WHEN WE CAN ALL WATCH THESE POSSIBLE WRONGFUL EXECUTIONS TAKE PLACE ?

TROY DAVIS & MUMIA ABU ~JAMAL ~ ARE HAVING PRAYERS FOR JUSTICE SAID FOR THEM WORLD~WIDE ..WE CAN ALL ONLY HOPE AND PRAY THAT EVERYONE IN OUR U.S.CONGRESS THAT KNOWS AND UNDERSTANDS HOW UNJUST OUR U.S JUDICIAL SYSTEM CAN BE WITH OUR POORER AMERICANS,BECOMES ACTIVE IN MAKING SURE THAT TROY DAVIS OF GEORGIA AND MUMIA ABU~JAMAL OF PENNSYLVANIA RECEIVE FAIR AND JUST TRIALS BEFORE ANY POSSIBLE WRONGFUL EXECUTIONS TAKE PLACE.

LAWYERS FOR POOR AMERICANS IS A WWW VOLUNTEEER LOBBY THAT SINGS OUT FOR OUR MIDDLE~CLASS AND WORKING POOR AMERICANS. WE CAN BE FOUND WITH ANY SEARCH ENGINE BY OUR NAME OR TELEPHONE NUMBER.(424-247-2013)

  • MANY MORE IN OUR U.S. CONGRESS ARE NOW FINDNG OUT THE TRUTH OTHER THEN SENATOR WEBB AND THOSE OTHERS IN THE NOW… IN CONGRESS

This woman is a disgrace to the representing of the people! She is so out of touch with reality of what the people need or want. Congress has become nothing but corrupt, and vain. they only care about themselves. We need to vote all the senators out and hope that we can pull ourselves out the mess they have made trying to bankrupt us! The stimulus did NOT help the average american, or unemployed person. It was alot of wasted money.
Now, they want to shove healthcare down our throats, and the bill will NOT help lower the premiums, it will raise them. The intelligent person knows that only Tort reform can lower premiums, and the democrats refuse to put this in their garbage bill. They are taking money away from medicare! WE PAY medicare in our paycheck for when we are older. What are they thinking? surely, not about us.

Anonymous 04/11/2008 6:03am

Why arent you for the Target Bill that would get the people in your state immediate help, wake up and back this unemployment extension bill!!!!!!!!!!!!

gkdaw_usa 07/12/2008 12:59pm

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.

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!

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.

DEBBIE WE’LL REMEMBER YOUR NAME AND YOU WON’T GET MICHIGAN’S VOTE AGAIN..

doberman2 06/25/2009 6:17pm

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!!!

SteelerGabe 07/09/2012 4:33pm

I am looking forward to firing Stabenow and every other democrat on the ballot this November.
The Democratic Party today is more of a Communistic Party.
They are trying to creat a nanny state in which the govt feels that they can make a better judgement call than the people. They want us to be dependeant on them and for the govt to have total control.

Please push for the unemployment extension now , people are losing jobs daily , factories are closing down and moving out of country, Do something good and only good will come back to you, I promise*

starkman14 11/09/2009 10:28am

Nah, nah, nah, nah..

Hey, hey, hey…

GOODBYE!

2010 should be a great year for real leaders (unlike staben-ow)!

starkman14 11/09/2009 10:31am

What have you done for your constituents lately, Debbie? Anything? <<>>.

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 monthly 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 we are 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???

UIAMERICAN 06/30/2010 1:47pm

Thank you for your support……. You just put into words on the floor exactly how I feel.

sherelynn 07/01/2010 10:33am

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!

ejohnson777 07/27/2008 3:02am

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