We need a change

One way to stop Bledsoe is ask him to eliminate his lifetime healthcare benefits he would incur if he wins one more election. See just what he says. Polls say it should go away. If we get on him ASAP with respects to this, perhaps either he can loose his next election if he doesn't deliver or this policy is removed not just for "future lawmakers" but for current ones. Have it passed by both the house and senate, or he works hard to have it passed or he's gone.(Next election HE qualifies). I suggest we look at ALL lawmakers who fit this description in the next election, and if this has not been brought to the vote (Snyder is on board), then vote them out in the Primary. We cannot afford this.

We also, obviously need redistricting. We have congressmen who don't represent our actual area or our best interest. We have only to look at Cheeks-Kilpatrick getting re-elected 2 yrs ago, that the only way to eliminate her, people had to resort to cross-over voting this year, since Hanson Clarke was the obvious front runner against her.

I am sick of Congressmen/women not representing my district because their area includes Detroit and Harper Woods. It's understandable the Park has more Democrats, young, preppy, indoctronated or old union die hards, they should be represented within our district, but we should not be overrun by them with those who live in Detroit and Harper Woods.
