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.

It’s time for Stabenow to go. This state has suffered with her, Levin, and Granholm. The only legacy she can take credit for is our high unemployment rate. Time to clean Michigan’s house!

Legalize medical marijuana, recreational marijuana, and industrial hemp. Don’t allow the DEA to legalize THC without legalizing the plant so that Big Pharma can sell it but we can’t grow it ourselves.

When will we see a bill to end corporate personhood? Clearly corporations are not humans. How could they so easily acquire the rights of humans? And when will we be taking back that right?

Let’s see a bill to end corporate personhood and keep up the good work.

Thank you for supporting me and my fellow unemployed Americans. I have been disgusted with how this extension is being handled but am proud that one of my Senators is a sponsor. If only the others could know what it was like to have 27 cents in their bank accounts with nothing left to sell or pawn. I have put dozens of applications in every week for the past year with not a single phone call back and thus moved onto the No Worker Left Behind program but still I look for work and there is nothing. Please remind your fellow members of Congress that there are children going hungry, electricity being shut off, and people tighening their spending even more now! I know they dont want to give hand outs to those who will NOT help themselves but in the process they are punishing people like me who have gone above and beyond what is asked of them as far as looking for work and are still unsuccessful. Even if I was to get a job interview tomorrow, I couldnt go because I dont have money for gas!

Dear Senator Stabinow,

Thank you for introducing S.3520!

FYI: I’m in the process of sending the following message every senator.

S.3520 needs to be passed immediately. There are 15 million Americans who are “unemployed through no fault of their own,” and who are also frantically attempting to find new jobs that do not exist. The majority of these 15 million have a family dependent upon their income, so that increases the number to possibly 30 or even 45 million Americans who are in imminent danger of losing everything. When this happens, the financial and moral ramifications for this country will be dire indeed. I’ll say it again— S.3520 needs to be passed immediately! Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

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.

klassylady25 03/23/2010 3:01pm

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!

purplelilac3084 03/06/2010 7:45am

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.

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.

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

Nah, nah, nah, nah..

Hey, hey, hey…


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

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 ?

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.

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.

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

doberman2 06/25/2009 6:17pm

Hey, Deb. Are you actually going to help sell us out to SOCIALISM???

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.

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!!

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

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
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

Are all your calculators broken??

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
at least 100 times

What the heck happened?
