Reader gives his list of political changes


Editor, The Commercial:

I now understand why politicians pledge to find us a job. They want us all to pay taxes.

Politicians keep promising CHANGE. Here are the changes I would like to see:

1) If politicians are allowed to write the menu, they have to eat what is served. In other words politicians should enjoy the same medical care and social security retirement they offer the American people.

2) No discrimination in drug testing. If you have to take one to qualify for a job, you have to take one to qualify for welfare money gathered from the folks who had to qualify for a job.

3) A politician is someone who will ask YOU to die for HIS country! All politicians should be required to spend allotted time on the front lines of any war they declare.

4) If politicians can appoint a panel to decide what medical treatment Americans receive, the American public should be able to appoint a panel deciding what medical treatment politicians receive.

Can I get an Amen?
