An open letter to Senator McCaskill
To the Editor:
Senator McCaskill, I recently saw your commentary on television regarding the Newtown horror. When highly emotional events take place, I subscribe to the belief that time should be used to let the emotions subside and allow clear thought to override. There is no question that the event was tragic, and I’m sure that all people agree.
In your case, you used this unfortunate event to grandstand.
You did this in the past on national television relative to Obamacare knowing that 71 percent of the voting people of Missouri gave a thumb’s down to Obamacare. I submit that even a greater percentage of Missourians fully support the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution and may be members of the NRA.
You were voted in for a second term by what can only be viewed as default since your only opposition made a non-recoverable blunder, but you still, in fact, are supposed to represent the views of your state and not what you feel looks good on television.
Your guttural use of “Right here, NRA” goes down as an embarrassment to all Missourians and should be to you as well. The language you used could have been applied to several others with justification like: “Right here, Trumka, for advocating increased debt,” “Right here, Attorney General Holder, for stonewalling the Congress on Fast and Furious,” and “Right here, President Obama, for the slaying of a United States Ambassador in Libya or the national debt, and numerous other events.” Yet, on those events you remain silent.
Senator McCaskill, instead of fascinating yourself on television with subjects you know little about, why don’t you pay attention and fascinate yourself with the work your constituents expect of you and your reason for being in Washington, D.C.?
For example, could the Senate produce a budget for a change?
You said you read the Obamacare bill. Now, try and understand it before it drives a recession.
And finally, before considering another revenue plan, pay attention to spending and save our future.
Would you please provide the residents of Missouri, and national television viewers if you must, with your justification for increased national debt? Put it in simple terms; those that you will understand.
I think the best way to sum up your behavior is with “Right here, McCaskill.” Shame on you!
