Your Opinion: Response to Garber on blaming Bush
Wednesday, August 3, 2011
Mr. Garber I did not elect/vote for my representative or senator to go to Washington, D.C., and get in bed with liberals, such as you.
Your letter to the editor July 29 would infer that conservatives need to give in. I want them to hold the line and represent me, not the left coast, the right coast or all the welfare folks in the large urban areas.
News flash for Mr. Garber, the wise Democrats have had both houses during Bush’s presidency (but it’s still Bush’s fault.) They had the presidency and both houses, still no budget. Bush does not and did not make laws, the Congress (Democrats) did. But you still blame Bush? Just how long are you and Obama going to ride that horse?
Most solutions are indeed simple. It just takes wise and bold men such as the ones that wrote the Constitution to act on the solutions. A lack of an increase is not a cut but it is a decrease in spending. Medicare needs fixing (among many other things.) Just as the so-called rich pay more in taxes, perhaps a person with a retirement income of $50,000 or more a year should have a larger co-pay for their Medicare.
I have not googled a bunch of numbers nor am I as cerebral as Mr. Garber, but I do know this, you can not continue to spend more than you bring in. Now just how hard is that to understand?
