Letters to the Editor

You make the call about leadership

“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your health policy, you can keep your health policy. The average family will save $2,500 per year on health insurance.”

“If those &#%!@?! so-and-so individuals disrespect our national anthem, they should go find themselves another country.”

Which speaker of those two statements can be trusted to do an honest job for Americans when negotiating on behalf of America behind closed doors?

Would it be the speaker of the frequently repeated, premeditated health care lie that enabled our self-serving politicians to stuff an unpopular health-care law down the dissenting throats of Americans in the majority, or would it be the speaker of the spontaneous, rough-hewn, truthful statement related to the disrespect of “The Star-Spangled Banner”?

An old axiom advises “be careful what you wish for.” With respect to the two choices in the preceding paragraph, be exceedingly careful.
