My HUNDRED AND SIXTEENTH Open Letter To Senator Pat Toomey

I'll be dropping this letter to Senator Pat Toomey in the mail today:
Dear Senator Toomey:

It's me, again - the constituent who writes for the local Pittsburgh-based political blog, "2 Political Junkies."

Senator, a few years ago and on more than a few occasions, you criticized the Obama administration over what you saw as "executive overreach."

Recently, the United States Supreme Court denied the Trump Administration the opportunity to add a "citizenship" question to the next census. A few days ago, Donald Trump said he was considering an "executive order" to get the question on the census, despite the rebuke from the Supreme Court.

Let me ask you, Senator, how is that not executive overreach? Or do you think that a simple executive order can countermand a decision by the Supreme Court? Or just an executive order from this president and not any other?

Your silence on this matter is evidence of your complicity.

Thank you and I await your response.
And I will be posting whatever response I get from him or his office.
