LETTER to the EDITOR-- MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE
Let's look at what we have learned from this election: Twenty-one of 22 incumbent senators were re-elected, and 353 of 373 incumbent members of the House were re-elected. The American people have re-elected 94 percent of the incumbents who were running for re-election to an institution that has an approval rating of about 9 percent. This indicates, as an electorate, we are a nation of idiots. We're now stuck with the useless, dysfunctional government that we deserve.
Yes, Boehner knows his job is on the line. The Tea Party are people of principle. Something that is hard to find in DC. I say go Boehner, Obummer doesn't deal, he steals. Steals from the over abused American Taxpayer. We have to end this Entitlement Society. If people loose jobs, remember voting for this economic fool of a President, has consequences. We have a spending problem, not a revenue problem. Everytime taxes are lowered, economic activity increases, hence does revenue to the treasury.
