Dear Mitt Romney
Monday, August 20, 2012
I hope I do get a chance to meet you - if you ever come to my Cape Cod, that is. I would like to hand you an autographed picture of myself and my children and ask you to donate to my cause. I mean after all - it's just a few dollars, and every buck counts! At least that is what you tell me in the giant "do not fold" envelope that just came in the mail.
It seems every day I am getting something new from you asking for my money. Do you think harassment will change my mind on who I believe should be president? Do you honestly believe someone who makes millions of dollars every year will somehow make me feel sorry for them by telling me how much every cent counts toward a greater America? Do you realize that the managers at my local Staples (your lovely company that I have boycotted since I found out that you started it) make about twice as much as my husband does; and that asking a family of 5 who makes less than $30K/year in one of the most expensive states in the all of the Americas - for a "Donation" to one of the richest men in the country - is a bit asinine?!
Yes- I truly believe you should be donating to my cause. And while you are at it, could you alter your little "health care plan" so that I will stop getting fined for not having insurance when it was YOUR PLAN that caused my children not to have insurance? And if you are not willing to alter that plan, could you please pay the $12,288/year it will cost us to have my husband's work's insurance ... + co-pays and meds ?? Just curious.
Don't get me wrong. I believe in the concept of capitalism. I believe people don't work nearly hard enough in this country and expect too much from the government. But I also believe pompous as$es like you deserve a nice big smack into reality when it comes to the little people. From what I understand, the only thing good about your campaign - or you getting into office - is your running mate. And the jury is still out on him, as it remains to be proven that all politicians are anything but liars and thieves.
Poor in Massachusetts - just like 3/4 of the state.
