To Governor Burgum, Senator Hoeven and Cramer

Krisanna Peterson


I hope that your moral judgement compass has been going off. I want to commend what Sen. Jeff Flake’s said today. I can tell in his voice he was scared. Finally a republican in our US legislature has said what the president is doing is not acceptable. I hope all of you will all consider saying how scary the President is. I am asking for you to stop looking away, from President Trump’s devastating words and actions.I am grateful for Sen. Flake’s Bravery and Honesty when he stated ” When the next generation asks us, Why didn’t you do something? Why didn’t you speak up? — what are we going to say?” The President is taking our country to a extremely scary place. Even my Republican friends and family members are in agreement with that President Trump’s Leadership is damning our country. His actions are clear that my ten year old son, calls out our President for his negative actions. So I can for sure say you very well are aware of Trumps actions!

If you call yourself Christian? I know that Governor Hoeven is Catholic and I have seen him at church before. According to from 5/9/16 Pope Francis stated “Health is not a consumer good but a universal right, so access to health services cannot be a privilege.” What all of you have been voting or recommending is not Christian! What would Jesus do? Would Jesus take from the poor and give to the rich? Take away medicaid and medicare? Take away Education for Head Start and Pell Grants. You all are aware the trickle down system doesn’t work. You know why the democrats didn’t vote for the last bill on taxes. You can claim it’s for the middle class but it is NOT for the middle class. You can only trick others so long. I am aware of what is going on and my ten year old is aware we are all tired of your lies. Lying is not Christian!

I hope all of you have a open town hall soon. I believe Cramer will. I have been trying to meet with Governor Burgum and Senator Hoeven about my family situation since April. I think it’s time that both Burgum and Hoeven have a Open Town Hall.

I am waiting…
