In an open letter to Senator Ted Cruz, Virgil Bierschwale at Keep America At Work writes:
I see you, Boehner and Cantor as the problems. Meanwhile, unemployment continues to skyrocket. Which means that people like myself --- with decades of experience in technology, both hardware and software --- are turned down for entry level jobs at the local VA hospital in the laundry --- which leaves us with a choice that no person should be forced to make.
All the while the government propaganda machine, consisting of Democrats and Republicans alike, continues to say that unemployment is getting better as they squabble like two spoiled children (that I would love to paddle and send to their rooms, given the opportunity).
Grow up, quit kissing your Koch brothers asses and put this damned government back to work so that Americans like myself can get back to work in the middle-class...that used to exist in America, until the Tokyo Rose Globalization Propaganda Group (meaning you and the other politicians) sent all our damned jobs offshore via free trade agreements that destroyed us and enriched yourselves.
Private industry will not interview me because of your free trade agreements that sent our jobs offshore. I’m 55 years old and unemployed because you replaced American IT workers with H-1B workers. As far as being a Vet and applying for Civil Service jobs, I can't count how many times that I’ve been turned down for what I consider to be entry level jobs.
Don’t worry, I consider President Obama and the rest of you guys and gals in the executive, judicial and legislative branches just as guilty as you are. If you have their email addresses, by all means, send them a copy of this --- because I personally will do my best to vote out any of you that are found playing with the Koch’s and other corporations --- while we are slowly being exterminated by your lack of resolve to LEAD our country to better the lives of us all, and not just for those like you.
