I sent the following message to Congresswoman Betsey Markey. She displayed an extreme lack of courage with regard to the health care vote and has been a huge disappointment.
The district that she represents, while competitive, is trending Democrat. There are far more Democrats who supported the health care bill that are in more difficult races than Betsey Markey. She is a profile in cowardice.
I'm curious to get her response, but I'm sure it will just make me angrier.
Dear Congresswoman Markey,
I am saddened by your extreme cowardice with regard to the health care bill. The fact that you voted against the bill indicated to me that you are more concerned with protecting big health insurance companies at the expense of people like me.
I was excited to support you in the last election and get rid of Marilyn Musgrave, now I realize that you are not much better. I can no longer support you and in the next Congressional election I will leave my vote blank.
I wish you had the courage to actually stand up and do the right thing with regard to health care. The fact that you hide behind the budget issue to justify your vote is pathetic and hypocritical.
Your Angry Constituent
