Dear Mr. (certainly not representing me!) Ryan:
No surprise to me that you voted AGAINST your constituents ability to be ensured we have safe and clean drinking water. Something must be very wrong in your up-bringing or your daily life for the most basic common sense and simple wisdom seems to be something you sorely need.
As your constituent, I am yet once again extremely disappointed in your vote, this time to cripple the Clean Water Act, one of the nation's most successful environmental laws.
Is it beyond your understanding that clean water is essential to health, our economy and even Wisconsin recreation? For nearly 40 years, the Clean Water Act has been the leading tool to protect the quality of water in our lakes, rivers and coastal areas.
The bill you voted for, H.R. 2018, would undermine the ability of both federal and state governments to ensure clean water. Sadly, Wisconsin's Governor is already at work trying to remove environmental safeguards on his own and you certainly didn't have to speed along his reckless railroading of Wisconsin's environment along with its citizen's rights, health, and safety!
I will continue to hope that his bill will never become law even if it should somehow reach President Obama's desk for his signature.
Instead of weakening our health and environmental protections continually putting corporate and wealthy donor interests ahead of the interests of the people and our world, I urge you to use your position to strengthen protection of our water, air and land.
