Enough is enough!

Here's a copy of the letter I sent last night to our senators and representatives from NY . Feel free to copy and use it, substituting the names of your own public employees.
Enough is enough!

Lisle, NY

Dear Senators Gillebrand and Schumer, Congressmen Hinchey and Arcuri:

If any of you truly represent me and the great majority of the people in the state of New York -- as you claim to do -- you will vote against the health care bill now being railroaded through congress by an ill-informed, ill-advised, and ill-mannered “majority” that is quite apparently totally out of touch with the American people. We neither want, nor can we afford this misguided attempt to gain control over still another part of our private lives and finances.

And at least one of you might have the courage, backbone, and integrity to submit the following proposed amendment – or one very like it in spirit and intent -- to our United States Constitution. I believe that we the people, the ordinary Americans who have come together to form this great union, and who have chosen you to represent us, deserve no less from you, our public servants.

Amendment to read as follows:

"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives, and Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States, with the exception that term limits shall be established for Senators and Representatives."

Thank you for your kind attention to this matter
