In her Jan. 21 letter, Blanco O’Leary accuses our congressman, Scott Tipton, of not voting for the Hurricane Sandy Relief Bill. Ms O’Leary needs to go to Scott Tipton’s website and see why he didn’t vote for it.

This bill was another one of our so-called wonderful Congress’ attempt to push through a bunch of agendas that had nothing to do with the Sandy relief legislation. There was millions of dollars of money to go to other states, kind of like the Bridge to Nowhere. That is why he didn’t vote for it.

This Congress (there are what I call the “seat warmers”) can’t just keep spending money that is not for the original purpose. A bunch of them added millions of dollars to this bill. Fortunately, Rep. Tipton read the bill. I do hope the readers will at least give him the benefit of the doubt.

I think this is kind of like Katrina. If the people want to send money and a care package, do so. Our government – Congress in particular – is so corrupt that they can’t be trusted to tell the truth. Scott Tipton is trying to make a statement that he is reading the bills and he is trying to help out the citizens of the United States.
