Mr. Mica, What a Failure You Are! You serve on the House Committee on Transportation and Infranstructure as the Aviation Subcommittee Chairman- You have done nothing to improve in reality airline baggage screening and explosive detection systems, other than to make Americans more afraid. You are largely responsible for Americans being less safe from terrorists today than since 9/11. You serve on the House Subcommittee on Highways, Transit and Pipelines- While you have supported giving away billions to republican porkbarrel projects in this area, you have supported nothing meaningful to secure our highways and pipelines from terrorist attacks. You serve on the House Subcommittee on Railroads- You have done nothing to meaningfully secure our commercial railroad and passenger services other than to vote for gutting funding to that end. You serve on the House Committee on Govt Reform- This is one of your grievest failures, since you have done nothing to help prevent the corruption and perversion of your fellow republican members. You serve on the House Subcommittee on Criminal Justice, Drug Policy and Human Resources- You have done nothing to support meaningful reform or prevent a single crime. Particularly, the crime rate in Florida continues to soar. You serve on the Subcommitte on Civil Service and Agency Organization- You have done nothing other than to help create a monstrously ineffective new government secretariat, while undermining the rights of the workers who serve in it. Is there any need to go on. . . You are a disgrace to my country and the great body in which you serve. What are the people of your district thinking by reelecting someone with your record? I am afraid they do not know what it is you have NOT done for them! Disgusted in Palm Coast, FL
