Dear Congressmen and Congresswomen,

I could not even address this letter to our Representatives as you have once again shown that you do not warrant that title.

Your rejection of the Zadroga bill is just another slap in the face to those who actually attempted to do something after 9/11.

As you sit in your offices paid for by those who elected you and meet daily with lobbyists to discuss how you can promote their interests brave people continue to die.

People who did not hold press conferences after 9/11 to swear they would never forget.

But people who did the right thing and worked at Ground Zero or Fresh Kills in an attempt to find the victims of the most vicious attack in the history of America.

And when we came to you to help those who are sick and dying because of their efforts you turned your backs.

You hide behind Congressional tricks that allow you to change the voting rules to get your desired results.

You line up behind Nancy Pelosi who has stonewalled this bill since it was first introduced with the hopes that it would die in committee.

Well the bill didn’t die but many of our loved ones will continue to as you play politics with their lives.

It is amazing how the House continues to be held hostage as its members sell their votes to the highest bidders every chance they get.

Unfortunately we do not have the money or the influence to buy your votes.

But be assured we will keep up the fight.

And we will let everyone know who voted against this bill.

We will also make them aware of what to expect “God Forbid” something like 9/11 happens again.

So the next time you are counting the money in your campaign war chests, money that you will most likely need to use to pay lawyers to get you out of trouble most of you seem to find yourselves in, remember we are still here.

We expect to be represented.

We expect you to care for the victims who where lied to by the Federal Government about the quality of air after 9/11.

We expect you to make decisions based on what is right and not what fills your pockets.

And most importantly unlike you……”We Will Not Forget”
