Letter to my Congressman

I just read about the newest spending planned by the President and Hilary Clinton.....900 million to "rebuild" Gaza. Since when was Gaza ever "built"?!
I have sent the following to my Congressman who always politely responds that he will keep my views in mind, and then votes the party line like The Speaker of the House has him hypnotized....

Congressman Clay,
The spending madness has got to stop! The news that the administration (Sec. Clinton) wants to flush another 900 million down the drain in a naive attempt to buy goodwill from a revanchist anti-western culture to "rebuild" Gaza is utter insanity. Then, to have it administered by a corrupt U.N. is on the order of a freak show. This is really some change going from 85 million by the Bush administration in December to 900 million now! All the while the stock market slide looks like the Titanic trajectory.

Is it any wonder that the Congress job approval rating is now at 26% on the heels of an election?
IF The Congress and Senate were in the cockpit of an aircraft the stick shakers would be going off and the alarms sounding " pull up" "pull up", yet it appears that no one is paying attention to flying the plane.
