The damage that John Murtha has done to the moral of patriotic US Marines in combat, by accusing them of cold blooded murder in Haditha Iraq; that accusation was proved to be false in their courts martial Murtha instigated; he never apologized for the hell he put those patriotic US Marines thru. Now he is encouraging the President not to send the 40,000 combat personnel required to provide for the security for the combat personnel fighting in Afghanistan. Somehow he has become a vindictive old man who is intent on damaging our military personnel. Kindly read the article below.
Murtha is also impairing the medical welfare of senior citizens in the twilight of their lives by voting for the flawed Socialized Public Health Care Bill that will ration medical care for senior citizens, cost over $1.064 trillion, raise the deficit, raise taxes on all Americans, raise insurance premiums for all Americans, fine/tax Americans who can’t afford to purchase health insurance, cut MEDICARE that is already bankrupt by $500 billion, add new layers of bureaucracy to bloated government, and provide medical coverage for 20 million Illegal Aliens (Because it is “public”, federal law requires all residents to be covered whether legal or illegal residents).
LtCol William Russell, USAR (Ret.) (R-PA-12) http://russellbrigade.com would protect and support all US military personnel in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan and rein in the out of control spending by the Pelosi Congress. If you have friends, associates, relatives, or if they know anyone in the 12th Congressional District of Pennsylvania, kindly pass this E-mail on to them, and ask them to support LtCol Russell by working in his campaign, providing financial support in any amount, and/or by networking with others who would be willing to support his campaign. Murtha must be replaced in the 2010 mid-term election, to prevent him from continuing to damage the US Military personnel, prevent him from continuing to damage the US Economy, and to prevent him from supporting the Obama Administration goal of replacing the Free Enterprise System with Socialism.
