Gridlock disgust

To the Editor:

This November is the next opportunity that we, voters, have to change the game in Congress.

The pundits have their predictions, and we – middle class moderates – will lose according to them. Then, of course, there are those who say one vote doesn’t matter anyway, so why vote?

With Congress in gridlock, our children and grandchildren’s lives are made more difficult every day that passes. Why do we allow this? Apathy? Laziness? Too busy? Whatever.

This November, we have an opportunity to actually get the “no”-voting tea party U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren out of office. There is a viable candidate, Dennis Anderson, who can win if we can get over our excuses and make the effort to vote.

It’ll feel so good to vote for someone who will work for us, who will work to move our country forward and who will actually earn the salary taxpayers give him. We have to elect representatives who will get us out of the gridlock.

Spread the word. Vote for Dennis Anderson. You never know, Anderson might end up being that one vote needed to get the House out of this ridiculous gridlock.

Every vote does count.
