Question of the day

September 20, 2005

Why hasn’t Tampa Rep. Jim Davis signed on to to co-sponsor H.R. 3763, the bill to overturn President Bush’s Gulf Coast Wage Cut?

Maybe we should write him right now and ask. Here’s mine – feel free to fine tune and send it as your own.

Dear Rep. Davis:

I understand that you have not yet signed on as a co-sponsor for H.R. 3763, the bill to overturn President Bush’s Gulf Coast Wage Cut.

I hope that you decide to co-sponsor this bill. Denying fair wages to the people who will be rebuilding and living in the devastated Gulf Coast region is incredibly unfair, to say the least.

Your previous waffling on CAFTA and your support of the bankruptcy bill might lead one to assume that you have no compassion for the working classes. I sincerely hope that you put that notion to rest with your immediate and enthusiastic support of HR 3763.

Or call.

Remember – Jim finally came around and voted against CAFTA, this summer, but he was waffling for an awful long time. Does Jim Davis hate working people?

    When Jim takes the time to weigh an issue, I don’t think it can be described as “waffling”. Well, of course you can describe it that way if you want. It’s a free world after all. I just disagree with you. He’s a thoughtful man and usually comes out on the correct side of the issue – the same side we share. :-) Just my two cents.

    Party on, Wayne.

    I agree that Davis and other Democrats should take a strong stand in favor of workers and oppose the Bush wage cut. Democrats need to be economic populists. We have been losing elections because the working class no longer trusts our party to represent their interests and values.
