Fleischmann still gets paid under shutdown

-A A +A

Open letter to U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann:

Your Party’s strategy to allow the government to shutdown in order to get concessions on Obamacare is irrational.

You know as well as I do that people  may not like Obamacare (because they do not understand it yet), but every poll shows they are vastly not in favor of shutting the government down to gain your small health care concessions.

I and others will remind people when it is time for your re-election on the stupidity of your Party’s decision.

You will not get re-elected.

Please help your party to get its head out of the sand. Start working on substantive issues like immigration reform and strategies to create American jobs; and don’t tell me health care reform is hindering the latter.

I am so frustrated that I have to even write this email to you knowing that all I will get back is a canned email response.

P.S. Isn’t it great that you  get paid during the shutdown? I guess you would be considered “essential” business.
Now isn’t that a real joke!
