Letter to the Editor
Republicans have been chanting “Spending Cuts” for the last several years and where shall we start. To me the place to start is obvious, Afghanistan. It’s time to get the h___ out of Afghanistan. The sooner the better. We’re spending billions every week babysitting a country that needs to take care of itself and join the civilized world. I agree with President Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel who said – after Bin Laden was killed – that we need to get out, that we have no reason to be there anymore.
So – if Republicans want to cut spending then they should do everything they can to end the war in Afghanistan. That way they can share the credit in America’s recovery and move away from being the party of the crazy people.
