Our Supreme Leader recently announced that he will support a House bill to provide back-pay for furloughed federal workers, the first time Congress and the White House have been able to agree on anything since lawmakers failed to pass a bill to avoid a partial government shutdown. Well, we're really not talking about sterling statesmanship. Rather the action is called pandering to your active voters to insure your re-election.
I would remind you that the publicized action has just put the millions of federal workers in all branches of our bloated government firmly in the pocket of Barack Obama and his stooges. Are you really sufficiently naive that you don't believe that every one of those federal workers are going to vote Democratic in the next election? So much for "bipartisan negotiation!"
I would remind you that Joe Kennedy reportedly passed out $100 bills to Kentucky voters to entice them to vote for his son for president -- you know the result. What goes around, comes around. Money Speaks, and you are going to very shortly see the results of the money manipulation of your current Huckster-in-Chief !
W. Richard Stover, Lewisburg
