Marilyn Ash Samet: Depriving for political gain

October 19, 2013 

I am a World War II widow. Still mourning, and still grateful for my beloved, deceased Air Force officer’s care of me.

Now suddenly, because of political meanness, I may join the thousands being deprived of pensions and benefits. May I suggest a drive that will pass a law to deprive these legislators of their salaries until they act sensibly on government without causing a financial explosion to hurt the whole country. They are crazed with power and too dumb to understand what they are doing and destroying the well-respected party of Lincoln, Eisenhower, and locally, our own Holshouser.

How dare they cause a financial collapse which will hurt our country!
