Letter to the Editor:

Stimulus plan still has too much pork

The writing of the whole stimulus package sent chills down my spine. Now is the time to right the wrongs of this bill and take out all the remaining pork and entitlements put in there by our dubious congressmen for once and for all.

In addition, an idiotic plan will release money to help irresponsible homeowners get lower interest rates or direct financial aid from the very lending institutions that got this country in this mess in the first place.

How do you justify that 94 percent of normal American homeowners have made all their mortgage payments on time and this proposal rewards deadbeat homeowners with a bailout option?

This is not the way to encourage good citizens of this great country to continue to do the right thing.

It makes law-abiding citizens lose all confidence in strict government controls, and will ultimately cause a taxpayers’ revolt throughout this nation in the very near future. The majority of American homeowners will not tolerate any more ignorance from our legislators.
