Letter: We must demand our government become fiscally responsible

Peach writes, "The waste, bureaucracy and corruption are beyond belief. If we ran our own personal and business finances this way we would all be bankrupt or homeless on the street."

I am convinced our federal government is working for special interests and self-preservation, not the American people. I keep hearing from politicians how they are working on fixing the problems in the country and yet nothing seems to change.

The problems at our southern border, national debt, immigration and inflation continue getting worse.

In talking with our representatives they say they are trying to change things. Well, nothing is changing or improving. Having worked in business for over 40 years, when something didn’t work we tried something different.

Our government needs a complete overhaul. The bureaucracy has become completely unable to function efficiently to resolve problems. Our Congress and government agencies are not effective.

The waste, bureaucracy and corruption are beyond belief. If we ran our own personal and business finances this way we would all be bankrupt or homeless on the street. We can start by demanding our government become fiscally responsible. The endless spending and waste must stop for our country to survive.
