Letter: Elected officials become czars

Have you noticed our elected officials? When elected to serve, they think they have become czars of a kingdom. Why do we keep putting up with being degraded to servants? Take the so-called entitlements. That’s our money they’re talking about, not theirs. All the money the government has comes from taxpayers, not the (czars) who live rich, plush lives on our money.

In addition they also have entitlements, insurance, pensions and other perks. Then, they say to (the money suppliers), we can’t afford entitlements for you, we must sacrifice for the good of all. I say let’s cut their salaries and perks and put them out of or back to work. And, I use the word work loosely. I am a liberal and I think all people should have a decent life, as good as the czars, now in office. Don’t you? They gave away your jobs, wealth and dignity with free trade. When will you have enough of the czars?
