To the editor:
Whoopie! Indiana has a surplus! Who else wants to celebrate besides the Pence for President Committee and the GOP political spin-artists?
Nationally Republicans have blocked Congress from working constructively on any of the country’s serious problems. In Indiana, Republicans have hamstrung local governments from obtaining resources to pay for police, fire, schools and all other services to their communities. They have supported a tax system that is abusive to seniors and low-income workers.
They have cut funds for revenue agents to pursue tax evaders, case workers for dealing with child and senior abuse, nursing home oversight, highway and bridge maintenance and the list goes on. At every turn Republicans cater to their corporate and wealthy donors while ripping off ordinary workers, seniors and children.
