Desperate Democrats

TO THE EDITOR: The Democrats are getting desperate.

They are now trying to blame all of their ills on the Republicans. The Senate Majority leader appears regularly at news conferences with outrageous accusations that the Republicans are lying about just about everything. In a few days, he denies that he ever called them liars.

At each news conference, his puppet master, our Sen. Schumer, is standing just behind him with a smirk on his face. When Sen. Schumer is given the limelight, he reiterates the accusations.

If we are to believe Schumer, Reid and Pelosi, the country has never had it so good. What has happened to the truth? Why do we accept these blatant lies from this administration like a flock of sheep? 

As they run away from Obamacare, they would have us believe it is the fault of the other party. After 38 changes and waivers made by the administration to a law passed by Congress and signed by the president, they frantically are finding ways to prolong the effects of the law until the 2014 elections.

Let us never forget how close we are to losing the freedoms that we all cherish.

Responsive government

TO THE EDITOR: I am a proud U.S. Navy veteran.

The greatest gift from serving in the military is the bond I made with my shipmates. That thread is common throughout the branches of the military.

A friend wrote me the other day saying “Nobody knows how to help a vet better than another vet.” Over the past year, I can testify to the absolute truth of that statement.

I was encouraged by the Office of Veterans Affairs at the Clinton County Government Center to see if I qualified for the VRAP Education Program. The program helps vets with education benefits as long as the vet attends an approved school in an approved program.
