Dan Benishek: $1,000 to smoke and drink

Congressman Dan Benishek (R-Crystal Falls) is set to headline a $1,000 per host “Scotch and Cigars” PAC fundraiser tomorrow night in Washington, D.C. Hosted by the One Nation PAC, attendees will mingle in a smoke filled room, drink scotch, and discuss the best strategies for maximizing corporate profits.

Benishek has shown time and time again he is out of touch with the struggles of every day Michigan residents. Last year, Dr. Benishek voted for the Ryan plan to dismantle Medicare and change it to a voucher-based system; increase the eligibility age; and increase out-of-pocket costs for 111,000 individuals in the First Congressional District between the ages of 44 and 54. Benishek currently represents eight of the 10 counties in Michigan with the highest rate of uninsured residents.

Benishek and other elected officials to put the interests of Michigan’s workers and families above those of the greedy Wall Street CEOs and corporations who crashed our economy. $1,000 to smoke and drink? How about $1,000 for the thousands of Michiganders in Dan Benishek’s district struggling to make ends meet?

$1,000 to smoke and drink

Dear Dan Benishek -

Time and time again you've shown you're out of touch with the struggles of every day Michigan residents. Last year, you voted for the Ryan plan to dismantle Medicare and change it to a voucher-based system; increase the eligibility age; and increase out-of-pocket costs for 111,000 individuals in the first Congressional District between the ages of 44 and 54. Currently, you represent eight of the 10 counties in Michigan with the highest rate of uninsured residents.

Mr. Benishek, you and other elected officials need to put the interests of Michigan's workers and families above those of the greedy Wall Street CEOs and corporations who crashed our economy.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
