Kucinich: Getting His Moment In The Sun On Health Care-No To Yes | Main | Surprise! Virtual Border Fence Virtually Worthless
March 17, 2010

I have no voice in the house, and none of the other representatives are interested in listening

See, its like this - Robert Wexler resigned his seat some time ago leaving this district I live in unrepresented in the house until a special election is held. A small token office staff remains to field phone calls and letters, and give out what information they can. BUT they don't vote in the house.

Now, if I were to LIE on the house email contact web forms and give a phony address and a zip code for another Florida district's rep, that email would go through.

If I TELL THE TRUTH, and give my actual address and zip code, they bounce me, and aren't interested in what the Wexler district phantom "non-citizens" have to say.

This really pisses me off. How can you have a vote on something so significant (be it good or bad) as this HCR monstrosity with a large part of the Florida population EXCLUDED from having a voice? Health care and how it get handled is a big deal down here with all the retirees. Wexler's district was heavy on retirees.

We have no voice. We have no representation.
We do not exist.

So Mr. President, are you all comfy with this present state of affairs where a big swath of FL has no say what so ever in these proceedings?
