The Country Is In Danger

Dear Editor,

The country is in danger of a depression which would make 1929 pale by comparison. We have robber barons on Wall Street taking multi- billion dollar bailouts and still going bankrupt. We have Washington forcing banks to give mortgages to people who they know will default via Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. We have people getting their social security checks lowered. Where will it end? I have finally landed a job with a 401k plan but will it be there when I retire? Let's stop all of the finger-pointing and name-calling and work our way out of this bipartisan created mess. 1. no foreign aid for five years let the EU step up to the plate. 2. lower taxes across the board. If people have more they will spend more. We let other countries contribute to our Afghanistan presence. 4. stop all illegal aliens from entering the USA. 5. levy stiff fines against employers who hire illegals. 6. no government run health care. Instead of giving Medicaid/ Medicare to Russians just off the plane give it to our citizens first. 7. no pay raises for House or Senate members until this mess is fixed. President Obama is just a figurehead. Vote House and Senate members out in 2010 and let's start fresh.

JOHN BRENNI
