Angel has a much better prescription

This is in response to the article in the Jan. 8 Port Orchard Independent about Dr. Spencer Schoenike, who will run against Jan Angel for a seat in the 26th District House of Representatives (“Local Dems want a doctor in the House”).

I think most real Americans would agree with his quote, “We can no longer tolerate mediocrity, weak leadership, partisan politics and indifference in the Legislature.

We must demand informed, ethical and creative leadership that will work efficiently and collaboratively, cut waste and bring us healthier and leaner government for the 21st Century.”

What the Doctor apparently doesn’t realize is that Jan Angel has been trying to accomplish just that in Olympia.

The Democratic Party has been in total control of everything in Olympia for years and has done the exact opposite.

This state is in worse condition than it has been in for years beyond my memory.

Whenever Jan or any other Republican has tried to put forth any conservative legislation, it is promply discarded by the Democrats.

The headlines in the Jan. 10 Tacoma News Tribune states, “Lawmakers again face revenue shortfall — budget crisis.”

Well, who’s to blame for that?

If our families face a revenue shortfall, we have to cut spending. We can’t go to our neighbors and get additional income to support our way of spending.

If it is up to the Democratic Party, they choose to propose state income tax or some other way of getting into our pockets for more money.

If Dr. Schoenike is trying to throw the blame on conservatives in Olympia, he needs to try again.

The Democratic Party has been in direct conflict with his quotes in paragraph two above for 40 years.

Spencer, please read the above paragraph two again. “We can no longer tolerate the inefficient, wasteful spending, unethical, partisan politics of the Democrats.”

If you really believe that, you should abandon the Democratic Party and join the conservative Republicans who truly believe in cutting waste and in ethical, efficient, creative, collaborative and honest leadership.
