Our new government is about to take away many benefits you have all worked for and given your lives for. Its time to stand up and be counted. Protect your families and brothers, CONTACT, all the representatives you can. Phone calls,emails, letters! Stop them before they take it all! It's time that the people take control of our resources and tell the government we are the country, not them!
I am a disabled veteran, I served during Viet Nam as a Navy Corpsman. Currently I'm a therapist. We all need your support and out cries!
God Bless this country,

Study the proposals in the original if possible, rather than relying on commentaries by political pundits pushing an agenda. We need to make informed decisions.

I suggest that rather making angry comments against one point of view or another, offer comments about what you would like to see passed. Share your specific concerns.
Rather than just giving complaints for the officials to react, offer suggestions or concerns that can be acted upon -- and enacted.
Respectfully submitted as a retired person and Vietnam military veteran.
