Chuck Fleischmann trying to look important
It's Time to Chuck CHUCK
U. S. Congressman Chuck Fleischmann of Tennessee has proven by his votes that he does NOT represent the people and needs of the Third District of Tennessee and doesn't deserve another term.  Voters are fed up with all the political partisanship and fighting in Congress.  We want someone who will work to solve real problems and not waste time on wedge issues that only divide our country.
It's time we got a representative who is not afraid to meet voters face to face.

Chuck Fleischmann’s Attempt to Fool Voters Into Believing He Will Protect Medicare

Rep. Fleischmann’s spin masters are really expert at making one believe that he supports a benefit the voters want when his real intent is to dismantle or gut it so he can support more tax cuts for the very wealthy.

His office recently took advantage of the free (not to taxpayers) mail that members of Congress get to use, to send a mailing that amounts to a campaign mailing asking voters to take a Medicare Survey.  It said, “I want you to be aware of new developments that might affect your Medicare benefits, because protecting them is one of my top priorities.”  This sounds great, Chuck is for protecting my Medicare benefits that I have paid for, but that is not exactly the truth.

Rep. Fleischmann supports the Tea Party/Paul Ryan budget plan that will gut Medicare as we know it and try to privatize it with a voucher system, which will cause the cost to individuals to go way up.  You ask yourself, why he would want to do this.  The answer is simple.  Fleischmann is a political robot beholden to the GOP/Tea Party whose goal is to reduce government cost by stripping the benefits voters have paid for with their payroll tax.  They strongly believe that if they give more tax cuts to the very wealthy, that some how this will magically create jobs and that the money will trickle down to the rest of us.  They call it trickle down economics.

It has been proven over numerous Republican Presidents that this just does not work.  One of the best economic times our country has enjoyed was during the Clinton administration.  President Bush came into office and gave huge tax cut to the wealthy and some to the middle class.  If trickle down economics worked, we should have had a very robust economy.  That did not happen and large numbers of jobs were not created.  As a matter of fact, it has almost destroyed the middle class that has made America so strong.  The truth is that money does not trickle down, it trickles up.  When the bottom 90% of the population is working and spending, everyone profits and the wealthy end up making more.  Fleischmann and his Tea Party friends have signed pledges to a non-elected man, Grover Norquist and his American for Tax Reform organization, promising to never raise any taxes.  They cry about the government debt, but only want to pay it down by taking away from the least able to pay and giving more tax cuts to the very wealthy.  This is not fair and it is not good for America.

Don’t be fooled by the politically slick, taxpayer paid for mail that Rep. Fleischmann sends out only at election time.  It is misleading and borders on being an outright deception.  Please take the pledge to never vote for Chuck Fleischmann again and help save America and your Medicare benefits.

This is your friend,
