Letter to the editor: Cutting social programs bad idea


Dear Editor: What a radical idea! Our tax money to be used for our needs?! Education, medical care, infrastructure, etc. The Republican-dominated Congress wants to either eliminate or cut by huge margins the programs that benefit people.

It works this way: Congress, instead of eliminating social programs, will probably cut them by a huge percentage - then we're supposed to be grateful and heave a sigh of relief.

Don't fall for it. The USA "can't afford" social programs because it invests in trying to rule the world. Where have we seen this before? Read history!
