As bad as things have gotten in state and federal politics lately, Lady Liberty has received a black eye here at home as well. Local politicians continue to mimic their national counterparts in kicking the people while they’re down. I call your attention to the articles below from the Daily Herald.
Sure, we have our problems with health care and irresponsible economic policies coming out of Washington, but you’d think that if any government would stand up for its citizens right now, the local governments would be the ones you could count on. Give your local representatives a call and let them know what you think of this latest trend. I have a feeling they may just be more willing to listen than your Senator will be.
