The Dalles To the editor:
I am a retired independent. As such I cannot agree with the two major parties, namely on “stimulus,” over-spending without having the funds.
Now with the imminent next shutdown, I think it is time for Congress not to be paid and join the rest of us. Furthermore, they should also refund the pay that they received during the last one. They should realize that the Congress created the mess we are in and maybe a few of the older ones should retire and not try for a sixth term.
