Congressman Erik Paulsen
126 Cannon House Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20515

Dear Representative Paulsen:

Would you please communicate with Representative Boehner and the leadership of your party that the ACA is now the law of the land.  It was legally passed years ago.  The people reelected President Obama after he and his party made it the law.  Twice now the Supreme Court has certified its constitutionality.  What more do you need?

Please provide some reasonable leadership in your party.  Please turn the attention of the Republicans, or at least your own attention, to real problems our country faces.  The list is long:  Climate change.  Inequitable distribution of wealth.  Relieving the bursting population of our prisons.  Becoming competitive again in test scores of our students.  Reducing the deficit.  Redirecting our foreign policy toward peace rather than war.

When your grandchild asks you, “Grandpa, when you were a national representative, were you trying to stop war, preserve our environment, or strengthen democracy?” do you really want to answer, “No, I was attempting to embarrass the president, take health care away from poor people, and give more money to the rich.”

Thank you.

Grimly,

 

Chris Sullivan
