2013 Budget

Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger
Sen. Benjamin Cardin

February 22, 2013

 Dear Sir/Madam,

I'm writing today regarding the budget cuts and sequestration. I'm a 35 year old single mom of three teenagers, working as a government contractor (working at Aberdeen Proving Ground for PD COMSEC), and I cannot afford to take 22 days of furlough at any point in the year!

Most of America can't understand why the Congressmen/women and Senators don't get their pays garnishes or why they get lifetime benefits! Don't you think that it's easiest to do away with this program?

How would you like to lose 20% of your income? (It can be done! Especially with re-elections!)

Please pass a resolution to the budget as soon as possible! This country cannot afford this - stock prices will drop again, the cost of food and petroleum will continue to rise, and on and on.

We cannot afford this, from the small consumer, up to and including the whole country. Fix this!

Joppa , MD
