DEMOCRATIC SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES--listen to the polls and listen to the most helpless among us!
The American people know what it is to slice the safety net that protects them. They vote overwhelmingly to support Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and raise taxes on the richest Americans, as well as cut taxes to support the military.
Ben Nelson and Blue Dogs -- this is aimed at you!
Reject the Republican plan to cut the safety net, as 70+ percent of Americans do. Have national health care plan, if this is what Americans want (and we do!) to reduce costs in the immediate and long run.
Once upon a time, in the Land of Oz, people had believed for more than two hundred years that an accused should be considered innocent until proven guilty. “Oh, no” said the Grand Vizier,“ nothing of the sort, you have it all turned around. You must believe that the accused is guilty until proven innocent. Put your trust in the great re-writer of laws.”
Please write your US senator and US congressman. Here's a copy of my letters:
Dear US Senator Merkley
Dear US Congressman Wu
One terabecquerel equals 1 trillion becquerels.
Radioactive material was being released into the atmosphere from the plant at an estimated rate of 154 terabecquerels per day as of April 5, according to data released by the Cabinet Office's Nuclear Safety Commission on Saturday.
The total amount of radioactive material discharged from the plant from March 11 to early April was estimated between 370,000 and 630,000 terabecquerels, according to government sources.
