Dear Senator Argall:
I have spoken to you a number of times; once you put me in touch with a state Department of Agriculture official about a farm preservation issue. I know you are intelligent. I always assumed you were also reasonable.
That makes my disappointment and anger even greater. You belong to a party that adopted a “fee” on natural gas that is even less than the tax Texas and West Virginia levy. You voted for this fee.
Your party adopted a bill under the guise of a woman’s right to know that degrades women who want an abortion. You know, as well as I do, that this was simply a ploy to make it more difficult to undertake a legal medical procedure. You voted for this bill.
You adopted a voter suppression bill that requires a picture ID to vote under the guise of protecting the voting process against non-existent fraud. You know this will make it more difficult for the young, the very old, and housewives to vote, and you know full well that will depress the Democratic vote. You voted for this bill.
Your party advocates selling the state wine and spirits stores, a source of good paying jobs, a socially-useful system, and a good source of revenue.
Your party has slashed school spending while fully aware that our children need a good education in order to compete in the modern world.
Frankly, I don’t understand this kind of thinking, this kind of action, these votes. I have lost respect for you and your party. I don’t think at this point there is much you could do to get it back.
