Democrats Will Face Backlash

November 8, 2009

Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., chairman of the House Republican Conference, told ‘Fox News Sunday’ that the House health care reform vote proves Democrats have not listened to American concerns about over-spending, bailouts and government takeovers.

He said that Democrats will pay at the polls because their actions prove they are NOT LISTENING to the American people.

According a a Fox newstory
“The message from last night is that the Democrats didn’t get the message in August or last Tuesday,” Pence said, referring to the town hall meetings over the summer where members of the public protested the plan and last Tuesday’s election where Democrats lost two big governor’s races.
“I think the American people are deeply frustrated with a liberal establishment in Washington, D.C. that is ignoring their will.”

Michael Steele warned the Democratic Party that they had better pay attention to “what the people out here are saying,” Steele said. “You can no longer dismiss people by sitting on your cell phone when they’re talking to you or calling them un-American or making them feel like you don’t give a heck about what they’re concerns are.”

Last night, I watched Democrats working on crossword puzzles, playing Solitaire on laptops and more – if they were there at all. (Most members weren’t there until about 15 minutes before the vote that put Pelosicare over the top 220-215.)

Part of our political process includes corrections at the ballot box to fix over-reaching political agendas. November 2010 will undoubtedly restore some balance to the force.

    The Democrats are absolutely not listening to the American people, and there should be a backlash in the November 2010 elections. However, we have two major problems;

    1) The healthcare bill is happening right now. This battle will be history by the Nov. 2010 elections. How does this get defeated?

    2) It’s obvious that people aren’t voting when they have the chance. In addition, the Democratic Party has established an aggressive approach to drumming up votes. The result is a government that represents an agenda rather than the people. How do we change that?

    Best regards,

    I think that the people are ready and willing to listen to someone who understands that a representative is responsible to communicate with and appreciate all residents of their district, not just those of their chosen political party. That is one of many reasons I am running as an independent against Matheson in 2010.

    Start by teaching the staff at Senator Bob Bennett’s office how to return phone calls.
