Nancy Pelosi sent my reader Amy an email. And Amy replied brilliantly.

Amy –â€¨â€¨Today is my 25th anniversary in Congress.
I want to take a moment to thank you for your support over the years.
We have made tremendous progress because you have stood with me to ensure that we continue moving America forward.â€¨â€¨And now, itâ€™s because of friends and supporters like you that the House Majority is within reach with five months left until Election Day.â€¨â€¨
On this special anniversary, House Democrats are focused on the 25 seats we need to win the Majority.
Please contribute $3 or more right now to ensure House Democrats have important resources to support strong Democratic candidates and Members facing tough challenges for re-election and hold Republicans accountable for their misguided agenda.
President Obama needs a strong Democratic Majority in Congress and your support will bring us closer to returning the gavel to Democrats who will focus on the peopleâ€™s interests instead of the special interests.
You are the backbone of our party and we will win in November because of your tireless support and determination.â€¨â€¨ Â Can you chip in today?
Onward to victory,

Dear Ms. Pelosi,
Today is my 13th anniversary in my home. Â
I have seen no progress in “America moving forward”. Â I have lived with the stress of pending foreclosure, postponed home auction dates, underemployment and bankruptcy for the past several years. Â
Please take the time to contribute a small portion of your huge salary to: Â The Fund to Save Amy’s Home!!
Your donation is greatly appreciated and will contribute to continued shelter for myself and my cat, Mr. Miles! Â
Remember that a portion of your donation (or all of it) is tax deductible!
Amy Sheaffer, MA, LMFT
Brilliant, Amy! Â Absolutely Brilliant!
I bet that felt good… maybe even great. Â It was good for me too, by the way. Â
Oh, and do say hi to Mr. Miles for me.
