Conservatives have said for years that Washington is out of touch, but over the last year the Obama Administration has shown us just how out of touch they can become.
In less than 15 months of Democrat leadership, liberals have taken over our healthcare system and private companies like GM; forced Cap & Trade, the largest job-killing tax increase in our nation's history, through the House; and added trillions of dollars in new debt that even our great-grandkids will not be able to pay off.
The federal government dramatically displayed its aggressive appetite for power by passing the recent healthcare legislation, encompassing 1/6 of our nation's economy. Government now controls 50% of our nation's output! If we continue down this path our country will not be able to economically sustain itself.
Their change has been a disaster for our families. It is our duty as citizens to change course.
At what point do we say enough is enough? Will you help me take the fight to Washington and stop Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her radical regime?
Now is the time to act.
Your contribution of $10, $100, $1,000 or whatever you can afford will help us take on the radicals in Congress and fight for the values we share in southwest Missouri. I do not have deep pockets or special interests financing our race. We are raising our money one dollar at a time from real southwest Missourians, the folks I hope to work for.
We are building a wave of momentum across this district with over 1,300 volunteers signed up and more than 1,000 different donors - many of them donating to a candidate for the first time. I have been to almost 300 campaign events and have visited every county in the district almost weekly since I announced my candidacy last year. We are continuing our "Listening for Solutions Tour" in which I am doing something unusual for candidates these days-LISTENING TO THE PEOPLE-instead of always talking.
As Americans, we face unprecedented challenges today. I want to hear how these challenges are affecting you and your ideas to make things better. I would welcome a chance to hear from you as the tour continues throughout the campaign.
We truly are running a grassroots campaign that is poised to win in August.
And we can win - with your help. Please consider giving whatever you can to help us in this fight for the future of our country. Time is running out for this financial quarter so we need your help by midnight tomorrow, Wednesday, March 31.
Thank you for your support,
