Letter: Greed guides Republicans

Published:

 

The Republican trifecta of slashing taxes for the wealthy and increasing military spending, while feinting concern about the deficit and government spending, is outlandish.

Government under President Obama is smaller than the last three Republican presidents, taxes are the lowest in years.

Yet the cataracts of greed won't allow the Republican right to see the truth.

U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Camas, has little voice but that of the Tea Party, she has few positions on issues other than what is handed to her by the party boss.

How can she face the working people of Clark County and not vote to pass the tax cut extension for the middle class while protecting the upper rich from their fair tax obligations?
