In Your Opinion: Congressman has it too good

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, where he has spent nearly all his adult life.

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