Letter to the Editor: Walden did what he could

Walden doing well

To the editor:

Greg Walden did what he could as our only representative as a Republican in D.C. Those putting out negatives on one vote that he had to do should know the facts.

Greg was in The Dalles Oct. 25 and I wish everyone could have heard what the real truth is all about.

Do you know how many times the GOP came up with plans to work with the Democrats — they didn’t want to close down the country, but what could they do?

The last session was Republicans again asking Obama to postpone the health care plan until the problems could be solved and also finding out what is in the budget. Greg knows we are going broke with a president that is throwing money out without an accounting of where it is going. They met with the president and gave out some resolutions and they thought it was going to work. Well the next day the president vetoed it. So then he was able to say that the GOP was to blame for the shutdown and that he did.

What kind of government is this? And what was solved and Greg knows the same problem is still there. As he said, the budget is in crisis, as well as the health care plan.

We have a president that loves to print money and how many have any idea how much stimulus money was misspent?

Stimulus funds even went to food stamp recipients. Now please explain that one. How was this going to help? And now they are going to take away some of the funds that they gave them.

Where are the jobs in this country? Why are we expecting the government to run all our lives? We are adopting the way other countries are run. This is not America. What is wrong is that we have forgotten what is in our Constitution.

How many of our young people have studied what our forefathers did for us and how our country was settled? Without jobs, where is the money going to come from to keep financing all these huge expenditures without any investigation?

Greg knows what he is doing and I am very proud of what he is trying to do to get us out of some of this mess.

So stop listening to the liberal media and hear the truth about what is happening to our great nation.

Give Greg a call. Don’t disown our representative on the basis of one vote.
