No doubt you are a very sincere man with my interest at heart. Considering that we are essentially contemporaries and supposed to be equals under the laws which you help to pass, I would have higher regard for your integrity if you were able to provide our citizens with the same opportunity and health care which you and your peers, those whom we've elected, do enjoy. No doubt you consider that you have my best interest at heart: But that cliche is a tired excuse for failures in oversight of many governmental agencies, established by law in the House and Senate, such as the FDA, who are supposed to protect us, when they pass as safe and effective drugs, such as those 'researched' by bogus trials made up by doctors such as Scott Reuben, M.D. or they create an economic disaster to the farmers over a tomato crop in Florida because they guess at an outbreak of e-coli, and justify a disproportionate control and overreaction of enforcement and propose additional regulations on a prosperous industry (agriculture) which has served us well for centuries.... while a scant import[sic.... I meant 'inspection'] of drugs, foods, and products enter from China and elsewhere are[sic] imported in with contaminations of poisons, lead, mercury, bacteria, etc., or mislabeled in strength or by ingredients. If you were doing the job which I expect of you, instead of passing more legislation, you would be reviewing what already exist with a critical eye to repairing flaws, and realize the biggest one is when government assumes responsibility for the choices of the people and regulates or removes from them the resources of their own labor and innovation to help themselves and each other. I see you're planning on 'retiring' from your elected office and wish you well. You have served the public in office and are sure to do well in the public/private sector for your hard work. Daily, I worked for the public, in a health care facility, almost 22 years, paid low wages due to privatization, but grateful for the skills God gave me to work with a difficult and special population. I was grateful for my compensation which furnished my own necessities without much excess, and the withholding for taxes and etc., were a reminder to me of the obligations of others for the source of my income. My own integrity required that i either be content or move on, where I might be paid more but my personal commitment and skills were less utilized. It is sad to see that so many we elect, and so many who draw their salaries off the public purse, have little conscience concerning the stewardship of resources off which their salaries are drawn and their pensions are paid. The bottom line: I do not approve of your vote and even less so that you and others allowed it to pass in such a clandestined way. You have failed me.... and so is this current administration. If I had 100 complaints against the administration which exited, I have a thousand against this one now!
