Your View: Letter to President Obama and Congress

JOPLIN, Mo. — Stop sending all of the taxpayers’ dollars to all the other countries. America is on the brink of destruction. When do you plan on taking care of America? We pay our taxes as required. Now, you do what you should do and put America first.

You talk about reducing the national debt in 10, 15 or more years. However, if you used the money — taxpayers’ money — that you are sending overseas, it might take one to three years and get us out of this debt, and we could all breathe easier and enjoy our lives more. We have earned that by paying taxes every year.

When America is no longer able to pay your wages, will you look to those other countries for wages in order to keep you in the lifestyle you are accustomed to?

God bless our country.

Joan Hicks
