My Letter to Senator Nelson

I sent the following email to my Senator, Ben Nelson, after he voted against the American Jobs Act in the Senate yesterday:

Sen Nelson you have disappointed me too many times. Your pathetic vote against the President's jobs bill was the last straw. You continue to sell out your party, your constituents, and your president with your right wing voting record. You have been an obstacle to health care reform, financial reform, and now job creation. What exactly is preventing you from being a Republican? You vote and act like one. The reason Democrats lose is because there is no party unity, unlike the other side. 

You consistently add ammunition to the opposition to the president and your party by voting with the Republicans on every major issue. You are a sell out, sir. What exactly is keeping you in the Democratic party? You don't appear to believe in anything the party supports or stands for, and you seem to enjoy rubbing the president's face in your obstinacy toward his agenda. I will not vote for you ever again. I am tired of being disappointed. If I wanted to vote Republican, I easily could. 

You are done as far as I am concerned. I hope you lose the election next year. And you know what, no one will be able to tell you're gone, because your replacement will vote the same way -- except he is being honest about it. Maybe in your retirement, you can play golf with your millionaire friends - the ones you cater to as a politician - and talk about all the giveaways you got for them. But the citizens of Nebraska will never forgive you. You are a sad and pathetic politician, Senator. I will never again contribute to your campaign or to that of the Democratic party of Nebraska (because they support you). Good luck in life, and to an early retirement.
