In Your Opinion: Medicare payments will be reduced


The Supreme Court in Citizens United makes corporations “people.” Five Republicans have become a legislative body equal to a combination of Congress and the president. The right wing is now comfortable writing laws to suppress minority voting.

Most Americans, when questioned on specifics, respond as humane and caring individuals who love America with all its rights, challenges and unlimited opportunities.

Few approve massive corporate welfare. 

Republicans taking a $5.77 trillion surplus to a $16 trillion deficit is something we can’t afford. Some want more of it! Simultaneously spending on two long, unfunded wars, multiple Bush tax breaks, massive corporate welfare giveaways, and trillions in interest will kill any economy. American voters need to face reality as Howson has.

Vote Democrats into office!

Charles F. Pierce


Congressman has

it too good

Recent letters about a 2012 congressional candidate raise controversial issues.

However, this congressman has a very strong record on several counts:

1. He does not want to extend present government benefits to anyone who has not been on the U.S. payroll itself.

2. He believes that budgets can be balanced by raising military spending while cutting taxes.

3. He never votes to decrease his own benefits.

4. He devoutly wants to remain a federal employee.

It would be a weeping shame to deny this extraordinary representative his pay and comfortable life at the D.C. trough.

Robert Moynihan
