Tuesday letters: Vote politicians out of office

Congress Returns

J. SCOTT APPLEWHITE — AP

I usually email my congressmen weekly on issues that are important to me and the United States. It’s amazing that they can read my letter in less than 10 seconds and respond on how they agree with me.

Can anyone explain to me why it is that our country and politicians continue to send millions of dollars to countries, in this case, Egypt, who hate us and want to kill us and destroy America? Do we really need to borrow money to give to one of the richest oil-producing countries in the world so it can build democracy, health, schools, roads and the list goes on?

We need to spend more money on Americans. I urge people to come to your senses and vote these politicians out next election.
