Time to wake up, America

To the Editor:

After reading the article “Chamber urges letter-writing campaign” in the Feb. 20 issue, the truth should be told.

This so called “sequestration” is only 3 percent of the total debt in Washington. We have to stop worshiping the golden calf and stop sucking off the tit. Where is Washington going to get the money? There is less than half of those in America paying taxes (and that includes businesses).

Until the government (city, state, federal) comes up with a budget, how do you know how much you’ll need in order to run your house? This is just more scare tactics and “have to do something” without knowing the problem. We all need to stop and seek the truth first and stop getting all excited before we truly know what’s going on. We better hope this sequestration happens; it was Obama’s idea in the first place.

Wake up, America!
