|Republicans not at fault|
Could I respond to Don Zirbel’s letter “pay the piper” in the Nov. 6 Vilas County News-Review? He responded to a letter that thanked Rep. Sean Duffy for his efforts to control our ever-increasing federal deficit.Mr. Zirbel says that the Republicans are equally at fault for the deficit that has increased under President Obama because they currently control the House of Representatives. This is wrong because most of the spending occurred in the first two years of Obama’s presidency when Democrats controlled the House and the Senate.
Mr. Zirbel also says the Republicans should pass a good jobs bill. During President Obama’s first two years, trillions of dollars were spent on jobs stimulus with no success. Now Mr. Zirbel would have us borrow and waste even more money.
At least he didn’t blame the Republicans in the House for Obamacare.
