Not happy with representatives

To the editor:

Imagine that you worked for a boss and you could force him to give you a raise anytime and every time you asked for one.

Would you live within your means, be thrifty and responsible with your money or would you spend more and be frivolous and extravagant?

Would you ever give a thought that your boss might go bankrupt?

That’s how Congress operates. We are supposed to be their bosses, yet they make us pay more and more all the time with nary a thought as to whether we can afford it.

Note to my two newly elected Republican legislators Mike Sexton and Tim Kraayenbrink; I’m just about tapped out boys and the 45 percent increase in gas and diesel taxes is going to hurt.
