I've been in Washington for almost 40 years. I've seen a lot of Congresses come and go. But I can't remember a group of lawmakers who accomplished more than the folks who just wrapped up their work.
With their help, we repealed "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and ratified the START arms control treaty. We passed a new law to rein in the abuses on Wall Street and protect consumers. We reformed the health care system and passed the Recovery Act to get our economy growing again.
But do you know why all that happened? Because people like you rolled up your sleeves, dug deep, and decided to make a difference. We had a dedicated group of lawmakers -- no doubt -- but they were supported every step of the way by folks from all across this country who were ready for change. People like you.
I know how much that means to me. And I can't even begin tell you how much it means to the President.
So here's the deal: President Obama wants to send you a note to express how grateful we are for all you did.
Would you like to receive one?
Two years ago, we were staring into an abyss. The financial crisis was the worst this country has faced since the Great Depression.
But this Congress passed the largest set of tax cuts for the middle class since President Reagan, the largest education reform since President Johnson, the largest infrastructure investment since President Eisenhower, and the largest clean-energy bill ever.
Now -- even though we still have a ways to go -- the economy is growing again.
Prior to this Congress, lawmakers had talked about reforming health care for almost a century. But with the President leading the way, these folks went out, and -- with you at their side -- they did it. Now 32 million more Americans will have access to health coverage.
When we came into office, just about the entire country had come to realize that "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" was wrong. More than 14,000 brave men and women had been discharged simply because of who they were. With your help, we struck down that law and made this country a more just place.
Every lawmaker who worked to accomplish these things will talk about their votes -- and the role they played in this progress -- for years. The President and I take great pride in those achievements. But each one belongs to you. You believed in them, you fought for them, and we're darn grateful.
So let the President send you a note to show our appreciation.
Sign up here:
Thank you -- for everything,
a taxpayer funded stimulus for the postal service?
“But I can’t remember a group of lawmakers who accomplished more than the folks who just wrapped up their work.”
LOL!! Baghdad Bob!
In poll after poll the American voters disapproved of each of those pieces of legislation (START, DADT, Healthcare, etc.). In the Democrat’s and RINOs mind the public be damned. They know what is best for us so we should just shut up and get out of their way. Even the humiliation they received in November had no effect on them. We are faced with an arrogance of power the level of which has never been seen in this republic. God help us( but I doubt that He will)!!
You forgot the PROJECTILE VOMIT ALERT!
remember - DADT was passed on Bill Clinton’s first day in the oval orifice
...answer the email with a question:
Dear VP Sh*thead,
Has this email been sent using the White Hut for campaigning?
Sorry, I figured the title would suffice.
Right, DADT WAS the liberal thing.
Now along comes DADT, now gays can serve, just don't talk about it.
Then, we repeal DADT, so gays should be dishonorably discharged again. Yet everyone says this is a victory for gays who can now openly serve. The UCMJ has not been changed, that means no gays allowed.
more like forced and lied and cheated to get your way and americans were watching
Right, of course!
So why is NO ONE saying this on TV?
But I cant remember a group of lawmakers who accomplished more than the folks who just wrapped up their work.
The financial crisis is the worst this country has faced since the Great Depression.
All thank you cards must be sent to all the democrat members of congres.
That must have been when the electricity went out in my house one weekend so I missed the news.
Seems like it made it to the right place.. :)
That's what I was thinking.
Is there additional language in the bill/statute?
