Economy should not be trashed by a political stunt

Letter to the Editor On August 2 Obama needs to step up and use his power as the President to put an end to the nonsense. Obama should address the nation and say, ” I am the President of the United States and as such I am responsible for the security of this country. America […]

Obama Presidency to be tested

Letter to the Editor Next week President Obama will have his presidency tested when Congress fails to raise the debt ceiling. It is now clear the Congress isn’t going to pass anything, which leaves the President with two choices, he can either let America go into default or he can step up and save the […]

It’s ultimately the voter’s fault

Letter to the Editor During the last decade the Bush administration turned a surplus into huge deficits. By the time Bush left office America was collapsing. Then in 2010 Americans voted in the same party that caused the collapse. So who’s fault is it that we are heading towards a default on America’s debt? It’s […]

I’m tired of being used as a hostage

Letter to the Editor I don’t know where it says in the Constitution that politicians can use The People as a hostage but I’m getting damn tired of it.

Letter to the Editor Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that he did not see a way for Republicans and Democrats to come to agreement on meaningful deficit reduction as long as President Obama remains in office.

Obama should bypass Congress on Debt Ceiling

Letter to the Editor I don’t understand why Obama is even negotiating with Congress over the debt ceiling when the 14th Amendment gives him the power to bypass Congress and order the debt ceiling raised.
