Letter to the editor: What about the other side

Andrea Doray’s piece in the Jan. 24 edition sounds like she’s stumping for office for the Democrat party. She goes on about current or past elected or appointed officials spending hundred of thousands of dollars on personal travel flying on United States Air Force planes. She targets Pence, Price and Pruitt. Damn those Republicans.

She conveniently omits naming Democrats that also abused personal travel. Democrat Leon Panetta (Sec of Defense Under Obama) racked up over $800,000 in personal travel expenses flying home to California each weekend and stated that he had no intention of stopping the flights. Democrat Eric Holder (Attorney General under Obama) took 31 personal vacation trips in Air Force planes and ran up a tab of $697,525.20 over four years, Joe Biden (Vice President under Obama) flew in Air Force II to his niece’s wedding. Joe had a full complement of armored vehicles, Secret Service personnel and pilots for a few hour event, (Syracuse.co, 6-24-14).

Doray states that she is willing to contribute to special programs, research, environmental issues, roads and bridges and other ethical governmental programs. Please don’t leave the readers hanging, name a few of those ethical programs. Could they be: late term abortions, higher taxes, supervised injection sites for illegal heroin/ cocaine/ meth users and give away programs, e.g., cell phones, etc.

Finally, she writes “there are also even legitimate government expenses that "I don’t want my taxes to fund.” What does this even mean? Does this include the United States Military, NASA, Police Departments and Prisons. Let’s not forget Border Security.

I know, I took everything out of context.

Thomas J. Lofland,
