Your View: Refreshing view

PITTSBURG, Kan. — It was refreshing to read Marilyn Beasley’s true and accurate facts about the Senate and House in the Globe (May 27).

Our Republican Congress has presented the Democratic Senate budgets for the past three years.

 Senate leader Harry Reid has refused to let the Senate even vote on them. Even the smallest businesses have a plan or budget to guide them. I can’t understand how Harry Reid and Barack Obama can run this country without a plan. With this kind of malfeasance in our government, we will probably go off one of these fiscal cliffs soon.
