I just sent in this note to Representative Issa. Let me preface this by saying that I was a fan of his once. I was good friends with his staff (socially even! Not just professionally!). I respected his military policy. I was, at the time, a supporter of the GOP.
I’m glad to say those days are behind me. I saw the error in my ways when I left DC and a year ago I fully switched my registration to Democrat. I’m now proud to support politicians who support me: a woman, an academic, bipolar, liberal.
Anyway, here’s the note I sent him this morning in response to his disgusting work yesterday:
Notice I listed Health Care as the topic of my note. That is because the Health Care – and the well being – of over half of the population of the United States is at stake right now, while you play games in committee hearings and refuse to even listen to the situation at hand.
Please do not deny women basic health care, which birth control and the ability to take care of our bodies is an essential part of.
