Operator, Could You Help Me Place This Call?

Walking through the Senate Gallery last Friday, I had the opportunity to hear Bobby Keenan give the same sad spiel about being fair to Centurylink's that Keith Regier gave the House. Yes, those wealthy men really did choose to nick the pockets of 11,000 of Montana's poorest citizens by stacking another $3.50 monthly charge on their phone bill.

What that means here, is that people like  Lena (the sweet young lady in the big wheelchair) and her Grandma could have had more of their $770.00 monthly income disappear because Centurylink has more lobbyists than little girls with big disabilities.

The Legislature just passed on the opportunity to create something efficient and necessary for the citizens of Montna

I don't know if Lena and her Grandma, Jeannie Brown were amongst those of us that Art Wittich dismissed as being bussed in and organized, but I do know that Jeannie Brown is not eligible for Health care coverage although she no longer holds a job to care for Lena. I abhor the mechanisms of power that have chosen to waste your taxes just to exclude people like Jeannie Brown, do you feel the same way, too?

The good news is that Jeannie is planning to challenge Art Wittich for his seat in 2016.

The other good news is that you still have the opportunity to help fund a reliable van to get Lena to her medical appointments .
