Oppose nuclear option

This is a copy of my letter to Representative Doolittle.

I am, I admit it, a Democrat. But you are sworn to represent me anyway. Do you take the oath seriously? Please vote against the “nuclear option.” (I didn’t name it that, your party did.) Do you really want a one-party system? Are you against the Founders’ ideal of checks and balances? Are you actually my representative, or is that a fiction to get elected? I don’t think you would have been elected if you had said, “I will not represent the Democrats in my constituency, and I will try to nullify the Democratic party.”
