Letter: Serious debt reduction is needed

Published: Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

To the Editor:

Congress, please take notice – we taxpayers are watching carefully to see who is showing the political leadership necessary to get and implement serious and disciplined debt reduction. 

Those of you who show the determination to accomplish this will be retained. Those that don’t believe “we the people” are serious, will no longer have the privilege of being retained. Do not think your retention is a foregone conclusion.

Evidence of doing your job must include demonstrating your support and voting for true debt reduction without “pork.” There also must be evidence that lobbyists’ special interests do not influence the way you vote. Congress must support and vote for real, unencumbered debt reduction, which is in the best interests of the country – aka, we the people.
