Letter: We deserve better from our elected government

The time has come for all of us to face the facts that we (and that means all of us) have allowed our government, our elected officials, to spend us into this fiscal mess we are in. We all say we cherish freedom, but at the same time we allow government to give us a little tax money in exchange for control of every aspect of our lives.

To tax is not the solution. This is plain to see as most of our manufacturing jobs have left this country.

Both parties are to blame. They have spent huge amounts of money that belong to our children and this has been going on for years. If they will not fix it, then we need to replace them.

We had hopes when we put Democrats in control of Congress for the past three years, but the spending only increased,

It's been said that people get the government they deserve. We can and must do better. -- Kenneth Bahr, Vergas
