Letters to the editor from this week's Chronicle:

To The Editor
Rep. Bill Sali has done the impossible!
In just the month of July, he has alienated elderly Idahoans (both men & women) and ALL women living in Idaho.
On July 15 Rep. Sali voted against the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (HR 6331).  The bill 1) improves patient access to preventive and mental health services, 2) enhances low-income benefit programs, and 3) maintains access to healthcare in rural areas.
On July 31 Rep. Sali voted against the Paycheck Fairness Act (HR 1388).  The bill amends the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 to provide more effective remedies to victims of wage discrimination on the basis of sex.
Rep. Sali is bought and paid for.  He has never voted in a way that would benefit the average American family if it might cost a corporation some money.  Why?  Rep. Sali is unable to resist the $1,000 and $5,000 handshakes with corporate lobbyists.

Letter to the Editor
I was delighted with the opportunity to become a co-chair for Bill Sali’s reelection campaign because he stands up for the issues I have championed over my career.  Bill Sali believes in limited government and fiscal responsibility – a stark contrast to the Democratic leadership in Congress.  Bill Sali believes in our Constitution and that the role of government established by the Founding Fathers is the right one for our country.  He has shown he will fight for Idaho values in Washington DC, that he has the backbone to stand up to the San Francisco liberal agenda.  Mr. Sali’s votes his values, and refuses to give in to special interests. 
The tax and spend democrats have caused near irreversible damage in Washington by supporting vast increases in entitlements, and we need a Congressman like Bill to lead the opposition.  Bill Sali has received awards from the National Taxpayers Union and Americans for Tax Reform – two leading organizations, which promote fiscal responsibility in Congress.  He even signed a pledge to oppose raising taxes.  For these reasons Bill Sali has my vote, my confidence and my strong support in his bid for reelection.
