I’ll help with cuts


I want our senators to know that before

they go into a sequester, see me first! I’ll be glad to help find the

cuts needed. And we are sick of hearing the threats to programs that

have positive results. It’s a marketing ploy to scare people into

allowing tax increases without any cuts.

A simple way to start is by looking at the events we, the taxpayers, pay for.
