Dear Dan Boren

I understand that you must stand for re-election as a Democrat in the very conservative state of Oklahoma. But when you said this week that the stimulus bill

became a Democrat bill and not an American bill, because [Obama] didn’t use any of the Republican ideas

what were you talking about? In addition to your fondness for using the offensive, GOP-created term for your own party, you appear to believe that “American” bills are only those that Republicans help write.

SEIU National Political Director Jon Youngdahl makes a good point, saying in a statement today that you “apparently [need] a dictionary lesson in what’s ‘American,’ and what’s just ‘hypocritical,'” but he may be too kind in this case. You voted this afternoon to approve the very stimulus bill you believe is un-American.

Please take some time to re-think this. And while you’re doing so, repeat after me: “Democrat-IC, Democrat-IC…”

Love, Elana
