Editorial airing on our six radio stations and four online stations


Annc: This is Viewpoint with Dennis Mockler, Vice President/General Manager of Monticello Media

Thomas Jefferson said “Leave no authority existing not responsible to the people.” One has to wonder how he’d view what White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs described as the “legislative process game” being considered to pass such crucial legislation without a vote.

Regardless of your position on healthcare reform - we believe the civility and integrity our system of governance was founded on needs to be restored. We strongly believe every member of Congress should cast an up or down vote on-the-record. Legislation that will impact 17% of our economy, but more importantly, each and every one of us deserves no less. Is it too much to ask that they do the honorable thing - allowing us to see how they represented us?

Mr. Jefferson also said, “Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.” If you agree we hope you’ll call Congressman Tom Perriello at 888-486-6487 and request that congress cast a yay or nay vote on healthcare.
