The Dalles Civic responsibility
To the editor:
While Rep. Greg Walden is not abandoning his conservative stance on the administration’s excessive spending, he has recognized that putting the cost of reducing the deficit budget on the backs of older and less wealthy people is not the best way to go on this issue.
For the “far out” Republicans to go after him is asinine. The people of the 2nd District, in the large part, are those who would suffer if Social Security and Medicare were the focus of budget trimming.
I, for one, support his civic responsibility. He is looking out for you and me.
