Foreign Aid/Tiktok Ban

To: Sen. Murray, Sen. Cantwell

From: A constituent in Yakima, WA

April 24

As a loyal Democratic voter and long-standing constituent, I am writing to express my deep frustration and anger at your recent actions and the lack of genuine representation you have shown in Congress. For years, I have faithfully supported both of you at the polls, but your recent behavior has left me feeling betrayed and disillusioned. At a time when millions of Americans are struggling to put food on the table, afford housing, and access basic healthcare, Congress has shown a blatant disregard for the needs of the people it is meant to serve. Instead of passing legislation to address these urgent issues, you have chosen to focus on trivial matters such as the TikTok ban, a clear infringement on our freedom of speech. It is abundantly clear that the decision to ban TikTok is driven by a desire to control the narrative and silence dissenting voices. You are threatened by the power of platforms like TikTok to mobilize and unite people in demanding change, and your actions speak volumes about your priorities. Furthermore, the misuse of our tax dollars under the guise of "foreign aid" to benefit weapons manufacturers, the military-industrial complex, and aid in committing genocide is outrageous. This is taxation without representation, as Congress prioritizes the interests of wealthy donors over the needs of ordinary Americans. I want you to understand that the tired threat of voting for the lesser of two evils no longer holds any weight. It is clear that both parties are equally complicit in perpetuating a system that serves the elite at the expense of the majority. Moreover, the sneaky and conniving manner in which the TikTok ban was slipped into the foreign aid bill is utterly despicable. It demonstrates a complete disregard for transparency and democracy, and it only further erodes my trust in your ability to represent the interests of your constituents. I am no longer willing to support your candidacy or your representation in Congress. Your failure to address the pressing issues facing our nation and your willingness to sacrifice our freedoms for your own gain have pushed me to the brink. I will actively work to ensure that you are held accountable for your actions, and I will urge others to join me in voting against you in future elections.
