Let the People Be Heard sign now

On Thursday Jan 11 Sec of State Condi Rice was personally attacked by Sen. Barbra Boxer saying she does not understand the loss of a soldier in Iraq because she does not have Children. Other personal remarks were made by the Sen. to The Sec of State that were not appropriate and had no use except to degrade or be made to feel that she was under attack. Upon hearing these things I went to Sen. Boxers web site as well as Sen Bryd ( My Senator) and voiced my comments. The reply I got from both was the same.
YOU HAVE NO COMMENT UNLESS IT WAS YOUR ELECTED OFFICAL WHO MADE THE STATEMENTS YOU ARE COMMENTING ON. Sen., Byrds office stated that they would not comment on my views about Sen. Boxers actions because Republicans did the same thing to them.
My view is that if a member of the Senate or Congress is selected to be on a committee then that person represents the whole nation. Indeed this is how the Speaker of the House looks at her position. This is a quote from the speech that Nancy Pelosi delivered to the Nation when she was formally sworn in to her new position.
"I accept this gavel in the spirit of partnership, not partisanship, and I look forward to working with you Mr. Boehner and the Republicans in the Congress on behalf of the American people. In this House, we may belong to different parties, but we serve one country. We stand united in our pride and prayers for our men and women in the armed forces. They are working together to protect America, and we, in this House, must also work together to build a future worthy of their sacrifice.

Should it not be the same for each and every committee representative? This petition will be sent to our Senators and Congress in order to change the rules that prohibit American Views from being heard. No matter what side of the aisle your politics are on I believe we should all have a chance to be heard on what goes on in these committees. The outcome of these committees effect everyone and I believe that if everyone can share their point of view with the appropriate members then there will be more working together and less personal attacks by either side.
Please sign if you agree changes should be made.
Thank You
Janice Stout
