Can’t get a message to Speaker Paul Ryan on refugees? Try this!
Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 10, 2016
Yesterday my good friend Louise called to say she received a fundraising letter from Speaker Paul Ryan and asked did I get the same thing? Well, sure enough, checked my junk mail and there it was!
How about helping make him a fundraising failure while sending a message to DEFUND REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT!
Here is what I am going to do (to this one and any others I get from the GOP), I’m sending them back with no money, but with a message to keep America safe by defunding the US Refugee Admissions Program, right now! This year!
(no matter what they say, they can’t vet the refugees!)
By all means, send donations directly to your favorite Republican candidates and directly to the Trump campaign!
Ryan’s “Team Ryan” appeal for money to elect House members comes with a letter, and you know what! I didn’t see the ‘T’ word anywhere in it—Trump is not mentioned!
However, and this is soooo funny, he says:
“House Republicans will be offering a better way forward going into this election. An agenda rooted on our core conservative principles where we:
Operate the federal government with a balanced budget, just as you do at home
Repeal and replace Obamacare, which has proven to be an utter failure
Free small businesses to operate without interference from burdensome government regulations”
How dumb does he think we are?
I told you here yesterday that the Republicans who control Congress (the House and the Senate) and the purse strings are part of the problem. They don’t defund anything!
What the hell have they been doing for the last year that we once again are facing a battle over a ‘Continuing Resolution’ to keep the government funded just at the time they want to run home and campaign so they can get back to Washington and do the same damn thing to us!
So, if you are as angry at them as I am, and you want to have fun, here is an idea!
Every appeal you get from the Republican establishment should go back in their own envelope (you can afford a stamp!) with a message written on it to Keep America Safe by defunding the US Refugee Admissions Program!
Check your junk mail! Surely you have gotten something from the GOP establishment recently, don’t trash it, put it to good use! (I’m going back to my junk mail basket right now to see what else I might find!).
