Kudos to LaTourette


Letters to the editor

— I would like to say how much I admire Steve LaTourette for his decision not to run for another term in office, especially for his reasons. Washington is falling apart, because of “it’s my way or no way” attitude of both parties. Life is a series of compromises, in the workplace, the family or a marriage.

Lack of compromise could account for most divorces and broken families, along with people having no respect for another’s views or feelings. America was built on the founding fathers working together to craft a Constitution and Bill of Rights. We need one Congress that works for us and not political parties only interested in keeping their jobs with all their free perks. Then they could get out in the real world and understand what the rest of us have to live.

One more comment. If all the newspapers and columnists who keep reminding us Mitt Romney is a millionaire, would mention the fact that Obama and his wife are both millionaires also, it would be less biased.
