Beware of the enemy within

Beware of the enemy within

When they were campaign- ing for public office, members of Congress promised to represent us, not themselves. So now they’re where they wanted to be, but they are only going to represent themselves and their political contributors.

We have troops fighting in other countries against terrorists in foreign lands when they should be fighting the terrorists in Washington, D.C.

I gave six years of my life to this country in the Army, and the most important part of my oath was to defend this country from all enemies foreign and domestic. Well it seems like the biggest terrorists to this country are sitting in Washington. They are doing what other foreign countries have not been able to do. They are destroying us from the inside. They sit up in Washington trying to figure out how to shortchange the people and protect their contributors. If they want to balance the budget, they should quit funding other countries with our tax dollars.

Why are we supporting over a hundred countries with our money? The American people should really try to find true Americans to sit in Washington instead of these foreigners.

Bruce Funton, Southington

Here's a graph that shows federal spending. You will see that foreign aid (international) is about 1% of spending. It is not the problem.
Most of the spending is in Medicare programs, Social Security, and Defense. Reducing the big three is the only way to make a difference.

EV You didn't put welfare in there , that program costs more. But you will mention SS and medicare they are things people have paid into all their working lives, but that is what you want to cut. Let's see how much the welfare crowd has done for their program Not a DAMN thing . they haven't given it a dime of their own money. That's a program that need to be cut off in its entirety

EV, I have found that the biggest problem with most voters is that they have never looked at the federal budget. They don't understand how much money SS, medicare, medicaid, defense and interest on the debt costs. The slice of pie left over for everything else is tiny.

Hman, your last sentence should have read "and they all vote Democrat."
