Letters to the editor for Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Big government is suffocating itself

With Medicare and Medicaid, and now with the onset of Obamacare we sink into a quagmire of underfunded entitlements laced with big government control.

Our present government could enact the dramatic measures we need to redeem ourselves. Yet it doesn’t. It fears that passing the measures needed to solve our problems will drive it out of office.

Paradoxically, it is these very stern measures which could serve to keep it in office. Instead it mumbles and grumbles and stumbles and fumbles and guarantees its own defeat.
