Washington, Dec. 19 -
Mr. Speaker, each week, my neighbors take the time to make their opinions known through emails, phone calls and letters.
Todayís Pulse of Texas is from a Federal Employee from Humble, Texas who recently wrote me these wise observations:
ìI am an 11 year federal government employee who works hard and yet Iím on a 2-3 year pay freeze while unemployment benefits are extended over and over again.
I live in a house that I purchased because I could afford it- yet my tax dollars go to bail out bad lenders and borrowers.
My children go to colleges that they can afford.
They all held jobs during college and the oldest graduated with zero in student loan debt yet there is now a plan to bail out those who went to schools above their means.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
Please help to break the cycle of entitlement and lack of personal responsibility that the government is fostering in this country.î
Mr. Speaker, America is the land of freedom and opportunity, not more free stuff and entitlement.
And thatís just the way it is.
