Congratulations, West Virginia!


Dear Editor:

You have let the Huns into the Kingdom! We now have 2 Republicans representing us in the Senate and more bad news in the House.

Your vote has now allowed:

• Irresponsible Coal and Gas extraction through Mountain top removal, fracking and the resulting poisoning of our waters and air and destruction of our sacred mountains.

• more layoffs of our Coal miners resulting with no unemployment benefits OR retraining for new jobs.

• the resources of our state to benefit almost no one in our state.

• the reversal of reasonable and cost affordable Health Care for most West Virginians

• the fact that many West Virginians will now be excluded from Medicaid rolls.

• the continued decline of the Health and Well Being of every West Virginian.

West Virginia is LAST in most things, our mountains and waters make us FIRST among the nation. Our PROUD vote on Tuesday maintains our LAST standings and moves our FIRSTS down the to the bottom rung of the ladder. Question? Anyone remember who got us into this financial mess in the first place? Hint: It wasn’t Democrats! If the Kool aid tasted good the first time around, it will surely be sweeter with the refill… If you have a job, keep it, you’re going to need it. If you don’t have a job, better start digging for roots and tubers, and better not let them know cause you’ll be fined or taxed for not eating their genetically modified swill. It’s going to be a long 2 years…

Congratulations, West Virginia!
