Response To LTE in Monadnock Ledger-Transcript Demeaning the Tea Party Members

Information in the “Tea or coffee” letter printed in the Monadnock Ledger April 1st is incorrect and misleading.

I am a member of the T.E.A. Party which is a group of concerned citizens (democrats, republicans, independents, libertarians, etc.) that have banded together as one voice to say that they are TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY.

Contrary to what was said in the previous letter, constructive criticism and creative solutions have been offered. TEA Partiers do not encourage violence, obscenities, or racial remarks as incorrectly reported by the biased news media. Demonstrators using such tactics have been democratic supporters such as S.E.I.U. members.

Why are we “Teed Off”?

Take a look at this and just remember elections in November 2010.

1.     The House & Senate have voted themselves $4,700 and $5,300 raises.

2.     They voted to NOT give you a S.S. Cost of living raise in 2010 and 2011.   

3.     Your Medicare premiums will go up $285.60 for the next 2-years

4.     Over these same 2-years each Congress person will get $10,000.

5.     Will they have your cost of drugs - doctor fees - local taxes - food, etc., increase?

Congress received a raise and has better health and retirement benefits than you or I.  

     ·Why should they care about you?  

     ·You never did anything about it in the past.  

     ·You obviously are too stupid or don't care.   

     ·Do you really think that Nancy, Harry, Chris, Charlie, Barnie, et al, care about you?

Maybe it's time for Amendment 28 to the Constitution whereby  "Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives, and Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ."

These people in Washington have brought this upon themselves!  It's time for retribution.  Let's take back America!
