November 22, 2011 Letter from Susan Bysiewicz, Connecticut Democratic Primary Candidate for the U.S. Senate: Same Old Story

Same Old Story

Susan Bysiewicz for U.S. SenateNov 22

Dear William,

It’s the same old story.

Once again Congress has been paralyzed by the gridlock of partisan politics. Even as we face a financial crisis unparalleled in our nation’s history, Washington is more concerned with party politics than with tackling the massive debt that threatens to cripple our government.

Extraordinary legislative powers were granted to the supercommittee so that it could make real progress on balancing our budget – yet even the supercommittee was unable to set politics aside and put our country first.

What’s worse is that the failure of the supercommittee is just one of several times this year that our own government has brought the American economy to the brink of collapse.

This spring, we faced the real possibility of a government shutdown when Congress only narrowly passed a last-minute spending bill, and over the summer, there was the threat of default during the heated debt ceiling debate.

We can’t keep playing these games.

Our country needs real leaders who want to solve our problems – not add to them. Help me break the stalemate in Washington by supporting my campaign with a contribution of $5, $15, or $25 today.

It’s time for Washington to make some real decisions about how to get our budget back on track, and we should start by developing a tax code that is fair for all Americans. That means repealing the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy and eliminating loopholes that allow many big corporations to pay little or no taxes.

Nearly four years have passed since the start of the recession, yet Congress still doesn’t have its priorities straight. The failure of the supercommittee is just one more example of Washington putting partisan politics before progress – even as American families suffer.

The stakes are too high to continue on with business as usual. Can you contribute $5, $15, or $25 right now to help me bring my record of getting things done to Washington?

Together, we can make Washington start working for the American people again.


PS – Let’s send the message that we’re going to hold Washington accountable! Help me end November strong by supporting my campaign with a contribution today.
