The Dalles Adding debt
To the editor:
(Edited for length.)
It is amusing to read letters to the editor lamenting that Republicans aren’t behaving like Democrats.
If only Greg Walden would just sit down and shut up so they could advance their agenda without interference. And those pesky extremists from Oregon’s Second Congressional District who keep electing Republicans to represent them.
Why can’t they just stay home on Election Day and let Democrats have all the congressional seats from Oregon? That way they could continue unimpeded in growing government, increasing dependence, implementing a massive new entitlement (ACA is the largest in the nation’s history), and adding to the already staggering $17 trillion national debt (currently 89 percent of the GDP).
