In response to Vince Eaton’s letter:
Mr. Eaton, Federal Highway’s, Electricity, water piped in from the Colorado River HUNDREDS of miles away, Boarder Patrol, and Waste water treatment are just a few of the things that YOU (and everyone else living in the dessert) are enjoying that were paid for with tax dollars, that EVERYONE kicked in for. I don’t benefit from the spending of those tax dollars, yet they were still spent to benefit just a few Americans. That is what we do in America,look out for each other. Do I think it’s fair? YES I DO!!!
Something had to be done with these Insurance Companies, who were dumping people left and right for no reason. Is this the best plan? Probably not, but it is a step in the right direction. No one should lose their home because of an illness. Yet that was happening by the thousands.
As far as you weighing in on what is happening here in Michigan, you left and gave that right up 20 years ago. This is not the first time that we have struggled here in Michigan, nor will it be the last. Those of us who have stayed, will be part of the solution, just as we have always been. We don’t need an outsider telling us how to run our State.
So just remember the next time you drive down that Federal Highway, turn on a light in your home, or flush your toilet, that the rest of the Country made that possible for you, and we are not even calling you a freeloader!!!
