Letter: Fire Foster for incompetence or cowardice

By on October 7, 2010

As each major piece of legislation (bailout, stimulus, health-care) approached a vote, I contacted Rep. Foster numerous times to learn his position and intended vote.

Similar to most, I had major concerns and simply wanted to understand the “well thought out” reasoning of his position. On each occasion, he was “still considering” until the moment he cast his vote.

He has either been wholly incompetent in not reading and understanding the bills he has voted on, or been too cowardly to stand up to Pelosi and put the interests of the people who elected him first. Either is good cause for termination.

Sadly, I voted for Rep. Foster, believing he was an intelligent and principled man … I apparently was wrong on both counts.

Rep. Foster has shown he takes his orders and represents the Democratic National Committee, not the people of the 14th District. For his votes, Bill Foster will be rewarded with bundles of money for his campaign and will use that money to try and gloss over his failure to be an honest and honorable representative of the people.

For that, we must show him the door or admit we are willing to look the other away as our country goes down the tubes due to incompetence, cowardice and corruption of our elected officials.

We the people must clean house and restore honor and sanity to our government.

    Foster has spent the last 6 weeks fundraising in California and New York. He has no interest in the little people of Illinois. Thats why he moved to New York, ( that’s right, he sold his house, got married and moved ). He votes with nancy pelosi 92.5% of the time ( check his record ) and does her bidding.
