I am writing this letter for those people who don't understand what President Barack Obama and the Democrats are trying to do.
The Republicans in Congress are trying to get the American people to believe that proposed programs will raise taxes and increase the federal deficit. This may happen.
Let us all agree that the federal deficit is out of hand. We must do something to bring it down. We should stop blaming one another. There is enough blame to go around.
Obama has set the stage for bipartisan cooperation. Let Congress get with it. It seems to me that haggling and fighting among ourselves is not only un-American and unpatriotic, but selfish. It is despicable conduct for anyone, especially for people in Congress.
The Republicans believe it’s every man for himself. The devil take the hindmost. That is, the government is best that governs least.
The Democrats believe that government should do for the people what they cannot do for themselves. I leave it to the reader to decide which side he or she wishes to be on. Perhaps we should all be on the side of America.
