Jerry Moran, Go Read and Support the Peoples Budget!!


My reply to Jerry Moran’s letter and messed up view of the world.

Dear Jerry,

Go back to school and take math, economy, and accounting. vote for the Peoples Progressive Budget. This is what Paul Krugman said about that budget being the Only game in town–the game you are TOTALLY ignoring due to poor schooling somewhere.

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman says the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) budget proposal is the ” only major budget proposal out there offering a plausible path to balancing the budget.” Krugman writes that serious deficit reduction must include raising revenues and that the CPC budget does exactly that.
A new International Monetary Fund (IMF) analysis concludes that “China’s economy will surpass that of America in real terms in 2016 — just five years from now.” The IMF estimates that under purchasing power parity, the Chinese economy will expand to $19 trillion in 2016 while the U.S. economy will expand to $18.8 trillion.
The Senate is moving a bill to cut the number of administration posts that are subject to Senate approval , a “rare voluntary surrender of Congressional clout” that is backed by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). “We are losing very good people because the process has become so onerous, so lengthy and so duplicative,” said Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME).

Finally, until you get your facts in order, please stop sending me these emails about the need to tax the poor or take away the poor and save the richest Americans–like the Koch Brothers.

With love,

Kevin A. Stoda, a candidate for your job in the near future!

Dear Kevin:

Our country is facing enormous fiscal challenges, which left unchecked will have a disastrous impact on the future of our nation. Tackling this fiscal crisis means Washington cannot continue business as usual and must confront out-of-control borrowing and spending. I appreciate you writing me to share your concerns about America’s spending on national defense.

I am committed to supporting our military and believe our troops must have the resources needed to perform their vital missions of defending our country. However, like all government spending, Congress has an obligation to make certain the Department of Defense is spending money wisely. I believe the U.S. military can eliminate wasteful, expensive programs and become more efficient without sacrificing its strength.

As the Senate considers defense spending, I will continue to advocate for fiscally responsible decisions while making sure our military has what it needs to protect our country.

Thank you for contacting me and please let me know if I can be of assistance in the future. To stay informed of my activities on your behalf, I encourage you to sign up to receive my weekly email newsletter, Kansas Common Sense, by visiting my website at http://www.moran.senate.gov.

Very truly yours,

Jerry Moran

One Response to Jerry Moran, Go Read and Support the Peoples Budget!!

  1. eslkevin says:

    The GOP budget is a dagger in the heart of American families.

    Under it, everyone would sacrifice – except billionaires and corporations. The social safety net working families rely upon would disappear. People remember life before Medicare. Many seniors’ lives ended in abject, heartbreaking poverty.

    This is the GOP plan for America’s future. This time, we Senate Democrats can stop them. But this is just the beginning of their assault on our ideals, and our firewall – and ability to stop them – is in jeopardy. That’s why we’re launching the DSCC Rapid Response Project to expose their radical agenda. I’ve set a goal to raise $169,394 by April 30, and I need everyone in the fight.

    If Republicans gain four Senate seats, their vision will become reality. We can’t let that happen.

    Click here to give $5 or more, and help us raise $169,394 before April 30. Our Rapid Response Project is key to keeping our Democratic Senate firewall.

    We’re not just defending Senate seats – we’re going on the offense, too. In states like Massachusetts, Nevada and Indiana, changing demographics and bloody Republican primaries offer opportunities to turn red Senate seats blue.

    Our Rapid Response Project will help. By countering every GOP attack and letting voters know what Republicans are really after, we can go on offense in 2012. And going on offense gives us a better chance to keep our Senate majority – and stop the Republicans’ radical agenda.

    We need your help! Click here to give $5 or more toward our April 30 $169,394 goal. Every dollar you give helps fight the Republicans – and save our Democratic Senate firewall.

    The Republican budget shows what kind of America Republicans want. The Democratic Senate is determined to stop them. Give today, and help make sure we can.

    Sincerely,

    Sen. Patty Murray
