Shame on Congressman Smith for voting no | Letters

This was emailed to Congressman Adam Smith this evening:

You are a disgrace to the Democratic voters in voting no to the fiscal bailout. You don’t care a wit about the middle class citizens of this country. You will never get my vote again and I will try my best to inform others not to vote for you. You might as well join the Republican party. You have been in office way too long. You have lost your perspective on why you were elected. Shame on you and Jim McDermott.

Clem Savaikie, Federal Way

Note: Congressman Smith released a statement: “I voted against the fiscal cliff deal because it left too much uncertainty for government programs, lacked a realistic path towards deficit reduction, and fell short in providing necessary revenues to effectively move towards fiscal responsibility.” Read more here.
