CORRECTED Your Opinion: Response on economic policies

June 30th, 2012 by Bernard Schanzmeyer, Jefferson City in News

Dear Editor:

I am writing this letter in response to Mr. Haslag's letter of June 18 where he was responding to my recent letter to the editor.

Mr. Haslag, I sincerely hope and pray that you are right and I am wrong.

But considering Obama's background and the decisions that he has made, most so far have been detrimental to getting us out of this recession - Obamacare, his stimulus package, cash for clunkers, putting more regulation on businesses and on and on.

Everyone knows that doubling the tax on the rich will be only a drop in the bucket and will not solve the problem.

I sincerely doubt that I am wrong. In light of this, and not knowing what his true intentions are, I think we should be extremely skeptical, I don't trust him.

Mr. Haslag, our president has allowed our national debt to increase $5 trillion since he took office. He insists on having a 1.3 trillion deficit year after year, refuses to cut spending or economize, ignores the fact that there will be a day of reckoning.

How can you trust a president like this to be seriously concerned about the welfare of our country?
