Government has to cut spending!
To the Editor:
We have to cut spending!
Doing the math on last weeks article about insurance for library employees its easy to see why we are in such debt. It appears that the government will need to steal more than $7200 more per year to pay for library employee insurance. This will bring their insurance premiums to $11,208 per year. What kind of insurance do we provide for our servants? Multiply this times millions of government servants. Thats not even considering the multi-million dollar library government found it nesasary to build because of a roof leak in the existing library. Does anyone else see a problem here? And people have to ask how we got to the financial mess we are in.
As for TSPLOST, is 441 so congested down at the Putnam County line that government finds it needs to steal millions of dollars from us serfs for a widening project? Does anyone see multi-million dollar congestion on 441? And why are we expected to pay for all of this infrastructure at Baxter? Why does the government find they can steal money from us serfs, doing all we can just to survive, in order to build infrastructure for multi-million dollar companies?
Government is suppose to be our servants. I'm getting confused as to who is serving who.
Governments a joke.
