Dear President Obama,
I am not in the mood to have you negotiate ANYTHING with this Congress especially the expiration of the Bush tax cuts to the rich. I am sick and tired of footing the bill for the rich people and getting little in return. I wanted a single payer health care plan or at least a public option and you dropped the ball on that one by caving into the Republicans temper tantrums. Instead, I got a watered down health care bill that won’t fully go into effect until 2014 which gives the insurance companies plenty of time to double and triple my current premiums. I wanted real Wall Street reform. Instead, I got weak financial reform because Wall Street took precedent over Main Street. Having said that, you probably still want me to vote for you and the weak Democrats in 2012. You need to convince me that YOU can do better than negotiating with greedy Republicans. You need to take control of the agenda. If you want my vote, then you need to earn it. I’m getting tired of footing the bill and getting nothing in return. I wouldn’t return to a restaurant that gave me poor service and bad food and I won’t vote for politicians that give me bad service and bad bills.
