Friday letters: Congress self-centered

Congress Returns

J. SCOTT APPLEWHITE — AP

If closing down the government is doing the people’s bidding, who are the people the Congress is talking about? Surely not us.

This is the height of hypocrisy and selfishness on the part of Congress. Let our representatives trade places with all of those not getting paid, and let them feel their pain and anxiety.

The majority of them are callous and self-centered; they are really representing themselves and showing who they really are. It’s damn the torpedoes, and full speed ahead.
