Smith and Murray: Guess how I'm going to vote | Federal Way letters

Adam Smith and Patty Murray keep telling us they are moderates, only looking out for our best interests. Every one of their votes show how lame those claims are. 60 percent of voters in Washington said no to Obamacare, but they voted yes, even though it included robbing Medicare of $500 billion, bribes to Nebraska and Louisiana, and the hiring of thousands of new IRS agents.

We asked for jobs, and they bailed out banks that won’t lend us money. They forced excessive regulations on businesses, and now Washington has almost 17 percent unemployment. Boeing and other employers fled the state. $55 million created 11 or so jobs. They sent almost 90,000 stimulus checks to dead people and prison inmates, but no trace of hundreds of millions in stimulus can be found in their "transparent government." They even raised backroom deals to such a high level that Nancy Pelosi told us that we would only know what’s in the bill when they passed them, yet they tried to deceive us about reading them.

They forced Fannie and Freddie to make bad loans to people without credit, and now the biggest section of the newspaper is Foreclosures. Patty, you are the second largest recipient of special interest money in the Senate, and you have the guts to accuse Dino Rossi of being owned by special interests. Adam, you told the Tacoma News Tribune you had the influence to moderate the president's liberal agenda, which makes you either grossly inept or the Pelosi pawn we all suspected. Vote them out.
