Letter to the Editor
With this latest budget battle Republicans have once again shown that they will miss no chance to do something rotten. This time they are targeting disaster aid and gas saving cars at the same time. Disaster aid helps communities rebuild after tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and floods. But – say the Republicans – we can’t just hand out money to these freeloaders, someone’s gotta pay for it. The Republicans need to find someone to kick so the go to the department of energy. And they want to cut funding for the development of cars that use less gas.
I can not imagine a single American who is against developing cars that go farther on a tank of gas. Whether you are Democrat, Republican, or Tea Party we all want cars that burn less gas. What are these people thinking. It can be only one thing. These people are at war with the hippies. This is a culture where Reality is called the “R” word. And it just all has to stop. This – is nuts! The idea that we should attack disaster aid, or even make it a political issue, and to be against better gas mileage is just plain crazy.
