If we're not getting out money's worth, why pay?

If we're not getting out money's worth, why pay?

EDITOR:

James Traficant Jr. has been indicted, found guilty and expelled, and that has been painful to watch. I believe that there is a serious point that is being missed by the people of the Mahoning Valley.

Every month I have Federal withholding tax taken out of my paycheck. When was the last time we had representation in the House of Representatives? Is this not true "taxation without representation?" I received E-mails to contact my congressman on various bills that are before the House requesting his vote either for or against the legislation. To whom do I address these letters?

There isn't enough money for a special election to elect a representative -- so we do without? I believe that the people of Mahoning Valley deserve an explanation of who speaks for us -- or perhaps a refund.
