Letters to the editor: March 27, 2009

Leadership at its finest
It must be a wonderful thing to be able to bring home the goodies while still voting NO on the omnibus $410 billion spending plan, which was just passed by the Congress and signed into law by the president.

How could we ask for anything more?

This way of doing business is a win-win for all, at least it seems so. Our representatives get to come home and tell us all of the reasons they voted AGAINST the bill while having no fear that their own earmarks are being forfeited.

It would seem to me that if they vote NO on legislation that contains earmarks, they should have enough self-respect to remove any of their own personal earmarks from the bill prior to the vote.

The current practice is political hypocrisy crafted to a fine art. No wonder the same people are reelected again and again regardless of the party to which they belong.
