Letter to the Editor
It is my hope that now that Tom Delay has stepped down that his replacement Roy Blunt will take the Republican party in a new direction, back to smaller government, balanced budgets, and fiscal responsibility. Over the past years since the GOP took control government spending has been out of control with the government now spying on everything we do, soaring deficit spending, and rising taxes on the middle class America is being looted.
Roy Blunt was elected in 1996 replacing the retiring Mel Hancock who was one of the most fiscally responsible members ever elected to congress. It is my hope that Roy Blunt will take the GOP in a different direction than self annihilation and earn his place in history as the guy who turned things around.
I ran for congress against this guy in 1998.
