Letter to the editor | Awaiting bipartisanship

October 22, 2013 

I know Rep. Glenn Thompson to be a gracious and polite man. I have the thank-you notes for my campaign contributions to prove it.

Thus I was deeply disappointed to see no apology from him in CDT reporter Mike Dawson’s recent interview.

Thompson should have asked the residents in the 5th District for our forgiveness. He has failed to protect us from the assault on our liberties in the form of Obamacare, even while he and his congressional staff will be shielded from it.

Thompson hints that there will be more opportunities for bipartisanship in the future. I am anxious to read more about his proposals in the CDT over the coming months, at least until the primary filing deadline in February.

Will Thompson’s legislation, like the budget and debt ceiling resolutions, continue to lead us toward national insolvency and require his surrendering on our founding principles?
