A Good Republican

Dear Editor:

Our new Representative in Washington D.C., Chip Cravaack, is an awesome Republican. He votes along with all the other Republicans on lowering taxes for the rich and ending Medicare and Medicade as they exist today.

I got a card in the mail from Representative Cravaack that said, ‘The changes (in Medicare) are common sense…” Common sense would say that all seniors should be included. Why would his plan only apply to those under 55?

He also voted to increase spending on the military that included spending to finance race cars for NASCAR. I am confused. Common sense tells me that kind of spending is not necessary if you are really serious about our nations debt.
