Have to agree, although i have voted for tim ryan in previous elections, i feel he has spent most of his tenure manuvering into a more politically stronger position and and has somewhat succeeded with aligning closly with nancy pelosi. yet having been assigned to the appropriations commitee i feel the effort for the people of the vally has not been something i would include on a resume. i will not vote for him again and urge people to do the same unless he does what we put him there to do and thats help and better the communities that trusted him and elected him. quit using politics as an excuse and get something done

THE CONCEPT OF BANKRUPTCY I DONT BELIEVE IS A VIABLE OPTION WHEN IT COMES TO THE AMERICAN AUTO INDUSTRY. THAT BEING SAID, THE UAW CONSISTS OF APPROXIMATLY 160,000 MEMBERS AND IF THEY WERE TO DEFAULT AND GO BANKRUPT IT WOULD AFFECT OR COST UPWARDS OF THREE MILLION JOBS. IS IT FAIR OR RIGHT FOR THESE 160,000 INDIVIDUALS TO DICTATE THE OUTCOME OF AN ADDITIONAL THREE MILLION FAMILIES THAT ARE NOT UNION WORKERS? I WORK FOR A UNIONIZED COMPANY IN THE VALLY AND I DO MAKE A GOOD LIVING FOR MYSELF AND MY FAMILY AND THE WAGES /BENIFITS THAT I CARRY ARE FAR LESS THAN WHAT THE AUTO WORKERS MAKE. ITS NOT THE UNION CONCEPT THAT IS THE PROBLUM, BUT THE SENSE OF ENTITLEMANT AND ARROGANCE THAT THE UAW MAINTAINS.
