Got a lot of response to the Corridor K road boondoggle that Tennessee Congressman Zach Wamp is backing. This is the road which would cut through two of the best mountain bike trail systems in Tennessee, with two monster bridges over the Ocoee River Olympic section, and which would cut through a wilderness area and Chilhowee park in Tennessee. It isn't quite as bad as the Interstate 3 proposal but it's close. Republicans seem hellbent on bankrupting America with spending every last dime they can put on America's credit card.
Zach didn't learn that this is a problem back when he was in the private sector...We had better get to him pretty fast because...Now...He's got OUR credit card!
While you are at it, make sure you let Zach know you aren't exactly happy with Interstate 3 or the Corrider K boondoggle. Ask him to go back and read that "Contract On America" thing he got into office touting.
Here's the very first item in the "Contract":
1. THE FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY ACT: A balanced budget/tax limitation amendment and a legislative line-item veto to restore fiscal responsibility to an out- of-control Congress, requiring them to live under the same budget constraints as families and businesses.
Write to Zach Wamp:
Here's his web page contact sheet. Don't know how this works but I suspect you'll get a fundraising letter at some point. If Zach decides to represent ALL his constituents instead of just the Corporate interests and rich people, maybe he deserves support. Not happening so far...but it could.
