My Message to the Speaker of the House

Today I emailed the following to Speaker Pelosi. I invite you to do the same. Just click on the title of this post and tell her what you think.

Madame Speaker,

I'm a constituent of yours and a supporter and we need you to be out front with our message.

Journalists have forgotten how to do their jobs - ask serious questions & investigate to verify veracity of the answers - so we have to do it for them. Our opponents are controlling the message getting to America's voters and we/you have to stop that.

David Gregory says he's been asking you for an interview for more than a year & you've declined while Newt Gingrich has appeared on Meet the Press innumerable times. This is not smart.

We need you to appear on Meet the Press by yourself and that you push back on the lies put out there by people like Mitch McConnell. This morning he said that Democrats plan to make $500m in cuts to Medicare insurance. That's not true and unless you are there to call him on it, the public will believe him. We need you to say publicly that what Republicans are saying is not true; no diplomatic bull, just call them on it.
