To the Editor:
Sara-Anne Eames should check her facts. (”As I See It,” 15 July 2014).
Congress does pay Social Security and health care premiums just like the rest of us, and has been since 1984. This long dead “fact” throws the rest of her piece into doubt, which doesn’t matter since there is very little substance therein anyway.
She lists a bunch of government programs she dislikes solely because they’re government programs. Why didn’t she just list the vegetables she doesn’t like -- the ones she’s never tasted?
Observers up and down the political spectrum agree there is much waste hidden among the many government programs. The wiser among them avoid lumping them all together. Don’t burn the barrel for a few bad apples.
