Tired of narrow, self-enriching, rubber stamped ideology
Five percent is a good interest rate. Your principal is safe and at the end of the term you have a little extra to show for your patience. However, a 5% return from your congressman is pitiful. According to the FEC, fully 95% of Congressman Jack Bergman’s campaign funding comes from various defense industries, pharmaceutical companies, banking services, natural resource using manufacturing giants and special interest PACs that have at best a very minimal presence in northern Michigan. These are the hands that feed Jack Bergman and he will never turn on them as opposed to all the “forgotten people” of MI-01 that he promised to represent. It will be interesting to see whom he becomes a lobbyist for when he leaves office.
Bergman’s entire campaign was based on his fact that he was “one tough Marine General” who would always do what is right. Instead he has become complicit with everything that is currently wrong.
Daily, I become more appreciative of those Marines who continue to put their Country first over party and a narrow, self-enriching, rubber stamped ideology.
