President broke his promises

Dear Mr. President: You told us we would have a seat at the health reform table and we were not invited. Unkept promise. You made a backroom deal with pharma for $80 billion. No negotiations. I was furious. (Senator Max) Baucus listened extensively to Republicans who wanted nothing but Democratic failure and did not listen to us. I worked hard and spent a lot of money supporting the Democratic party. I feel totally “stabbed in the back” and will not support this party and go back to independent status unless we are given fair representation at the reform table. I did not vote for control by corporations and lobbyists. I am still angry. I want results for us, the people. We’re the ones who put you in office. We deserve to be the first ones at the table.
