(This email was sent to Florida Senator Bill Nelson today)
Dear Senator Nelson,
As a fellow veteran I have respected your service to our country both in the Armed services and NASA, and now in the Senate. You have done an admirable job to make sure the people of Florida are properly represented.
Recently though the president and the congressional leadership have made your job harder and harder. The President’s budget plan dealt a blow to the space coast of Florida and the future of NASA. Now the President’s new plan removes the protections of Florida’s Medicaid recipient service that you fought to have included in the original healthcare reform bill.
Because of these policies that go against the wishes of the Florida people and against the stances you have taken as part of your desire to serve as a Senator. You need to publicly pledge to vote against any health care reform bill that does not meet the needs and desires of the people you have been elected to represent.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing your response.
