MR President I am writing once more with my concerns about the US economy and current conditions. I feel I have a good handle on this situation having worked for a living since the late sixties. Far to many jobs have left this country for other country’s were labor and costs are cheaper providing companies with more profits also the illegal aliens coming into this country in increasing numbers take up many of the available jobs. In this area of Missouri alone several factories hire as many of these illegal’s as they can get, Having been laid off for close to five months this year alone I feel these things very deeply and fail to understand how the Government in the USA can allow such things to happen to its own people, others have been off longer than I and they to feel the crunch many like myself now face life without insurance and can not afford to get any. no jobs to feed my family and pay my bills, I will have to very shortly quit taking Medicines I can no longer afford for Heart conditions as well as other problems. I have gotten two emails from congress people today putting more blame on you for not meeting there agenda and to be truthful I’m fed up with such crap coming from grown men we trust to run our country. Now while I do not believe your right in every decision I listened very hard to your speech last night and I found you to be on the right track for helping the American working class. We have to create more jobs, even out the tax load by making those who can pay more do so. Force companies to produce more goods here in the US rather than take jobs over seas or if they insist raise duties and taxes for there goods accordingly. We need to get a better hold on the immigration issue with better enforcement . Everyone in Washington seems to wish to cut Social Security which they call an entitlement . WRONG ANSWER! Americans have paid in to Social Security for years its not an Entitlement its something we put our money into and deserve to get money back from. Congress is not Entitled to take money from it. Entitlements include Welfare programs and possibly Medicaid programs to give money to Farmers for not raising crops or to special interest groups some Politician may have a friend running. Instead of Welfare why don’t you bring back the WPA and help those who need help by letting them earn there way by providing labor for a good purpose while making there own living. Quite possibly the only way members of Congress will ever fully understand the situation in the US now is if they were to lose their nice retirement plan, instead of there huge paycheck the have to live on $250.00 per week unemployment benefits and share in Social Security like the regular American and lets not forget there special insurance maybe they need to have to pay for there own like the working class that they apparently feel like they are above. Maybe then us commoners might not hear them boasting that they have no intention of following your ambitions to help working American but to continue there childish bickering and do nothing to help the class that provides the largest portion of the US income. With all due respect our Government sucks. Lets Recycle Congress. Gary Sumpter, Franklin,Missouri. garysumpter@hughes.net
