To The Daily Sun,
Tuesday (March 3) Congress passed the funding of the Department of Homeland Security. If it had not passed, 87 percent of the department's personnel would still have been working.
The Congressional Research Service, which is a non-partisan part of the Congress that does research, says funding the Department of Homeland Security and funding the president's amnesty executive action, would entitle illegal aliens who get a Social Security number to file back taxes and they would be entitled to earned income tax credit and additional child tax credit. An illegal family with three or four children could be entitled to a $35,000 check. The IRS agreed with the finding of the Congressional Research Service.
I would like a $35,000 check from the government. Instead I pay taxes. I bet you do, too. So we work and pay and they will collect.
Senator Shaheen said, "It is time to put an end to partisan politics." What a load of crap! Senator Landrieu was in a tough re-election race. Thirty-one Democrat Senators broke ranks and voted for the Keystone pipeline just before the 2014 election and then voted against it just last month. I did not hear her say anything then about partisan politics.
None of our federal representatives voted to defund the amnesty executive action. Whether you are against this or not is not in the big picture. The president said over and over again for years that he did not have the authority to do this. Yet he did it. He broke the law ... again.
Our representatives did not stand up for us or the Constitution. Little by little our inalienable rights that are part of our Constitution and that have been fought for by our citizens to preserve are being taken away and we do nothing.
The Republicans said over and over before the election that they would stand up to Obama. Well, the two Republicans from our state did not stand up. They surrendered.
I am an independent. I voted Republican because they said over and over that they would stand for us. This vote was important. Our rights are important. They took an oath to preserve and protect the Constitution. As far as I can tell, they are not. Why did I vote Republican? Should I again. For the lesser of two evils.
I want a representative who represents the citizens of New Hampshire and the USA. I will not agree with everything voted on, but there are some that are more important than others. Our representatives let us down. They let the Constitution down. They let the world down as people all over the world look to the U.S. for guidance.
Shame on Senators Shaheen and Ayotte and Representative Guinta.
