Letters to the Editor 10/26/13

In response to ‘the deal’

To the Editor: The Letter To The Editor by Barbara A. Whitfield (Oct. 19) pretty well sums it up as to what the irresponsible scavengers are doing in Washington. They are more concerned about their own political and financial interest than they are about the interests of John and Jane Doe. They know the debt they have created will never be repaid. Thankfully, our two senators have tried, without success, to restrain some of their wild spending.

The House spent weeks investigating the horrendous failure of the ‘Fast and Furious’ program, instigated by Attorney General Eric Holder. What ever came of it? Nothing; no heads fell. They also spent considerable time investigating the Benghazi consulate murders; and again, no heads fell!

Members of the legislative branch all too often add so called earmarks to bills for the sole purpose of funding their pet projects in their home state, adding millions (or billions) to the deficit. Then there is the unaffordable “Affordable Care Act” program, which is also adding to the deficit. We are confused about the actual contents of the bill and what we need to do, if anything. Nancy Pelosi said, “We have to pass it to see what’s in it.”

Well Nancy, we still don’t know what’s in it — other than lawyer language we don’t understand.

As for our debt and runaway spending, I ask, “Have we reached the point of no return?”

Questions new campus

To the Editor: Seems like the Navarro College is at it again. Wanting Navarro County taxpayers to take on another cost for opening a campus in another county who will not be paying into our county's tax load. ...

We currently have Ellis and Limestone County campuses in the back pockets of Navarro county taxpayers. Now they want to add a campus in Freestone County at our expense.

It's time we have someone in Navarro County to represent the taxpayers and look into the fairness of this kind of decision making from the president of the Navarro College.

All the university extension campuses in Texas are state supported. It is time Navarro County taxpayers stop taking the risk.

Sincerely,

Daryl and Sherry Knowles
