Open Letter to My Senator for the Lame Duck Session

Dear Senator Casey,

Please, sir, when you begin the lame duck session on Wednesday, do not allow the Bush tax cuts for the very rich to persist. We as a working people, the backbone of American society and the evaporating middle class, cannot afford 700 billion to fill the caviar bowls of Mitch McConnell and John Boehner.

It is of paramount importance that Congress create the conditions for job growth, extension of unemployment insurance benefits to the now needy segment of our society, and to bringing to justice the criminals running the Wall Street banks who got us in this Depression 2.0 in the first place.

Republicans have consistently asked Americans to fight wars that their favored contractors like Blackwater, Halliburton and others make money on, taking American lives and American working class money while doing it. This must stop.

Any sane person who checks the actual FACTS will conclude that the disparity between rich and poor is at its highest in history. The middle class is disappearing at an alarming rate, replaced by subsistence workers who once thought they could realize the American dream of owning their own home and being able to afford paying for it.

Instead of that, we have an average homeless age of 9 years old. That is unforgivable. While the rich keep getting richer and farming their so-called job creation to other countries, many of which hate America, the American worker is being held hostage.

President Obama has not been given enough time to repair the enormous damage done by the Bush oligarchy. It's supposed to be "Yes WE Can," not "Let HIM do it and in a very short time."

PLEASE help the working class and do not give in to the powerful. They only got that way because the perceived weak portion of our society let them.

I've been for the working person all my life and have never seen such depraved political and social upheaval on this scale. It needs to stop. We need to pursue the original concept of change. Not go back to the dark ages that we have now.

FIGHT FOR US. Without the working class, America will fall. United we stand, divided we fall. At present, we are divided. I think you know what happens next.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely and with respect,
