First a correction to my last post referencing "Congress
included in any legislation." There is no such language
My bad. There is NO 28th amendment, I should have been more clear.
There SHOULD be a 28th amendment which would read:
"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens
of the United States that does not apply equally to the President,
Senators, Representatives, or any elected official. Further,
Congress shall make no law that applies to the President, Senators
or Representatives, that does not apply equally to the citizens
of the United States."
Now, my post:
Is it not the time for Senator Beigch to come to our local community's
assistance? It would seem so. I believe all it would take would
be the local Moderate/liberal Republicans jointly with the "Everything
is free and all for Me" Democrats, in a bipartisan way,
approach Senator Begich to make his vote for National Health
Care worth something.
Now is the time to ask him
to negotiate for new funding for the free "Bridge to Nowhere".
I will leave it to others who might support this suggestion,
to add additional demanded and necessary local "Comfort"
projects, all free of course.
Never mind the burden placed on our Grandchildren and beyond.
American public school students range far behind the rest of
the world in math that they will never question or know what
the relationship of a few hundred million dollars for "Us,
you and me", is to what Billion(s) or Trillion(s) when it
comes bill paying time. Besides, if Senator Begich doesn't ask
for this, some other Democratic Senator will for his/Her state.
Cheer him on and up! Think of "Us". Time is short!
"Bus Token Al" No

remember Mr. Blanchard rowing from his Gravina farm (airport)
to Ketchikan to sell fresh veggies from his garden."
