I have never met Amy Klobuchar but she appears to be a friendly person, just like your next door neighbor probably is. In her recent political ads that I have seen she has helped a couple of individuals with issues that they have had, and I commend her for that.
The service that she provided to these individuals was something that I am sure anyone else in her position would have also provided. Those were a couple of easy, common-sense things to help with and do. Some of the more difficult parts of her job should have been to read the health care bill before voting on it, instead of voting for it and then all of us finding out what it contains at the same time. About 65 percent of US citizens now oppose it.
When I have a health problem I do not want some bureaucrat, maybe sitting in Washington DC, deciding whether or not I receive treatment or surgery for my problem. I want a senator that will make informed decisions before voting for something rather than listening to and following whatever her political party tells her to do.
I think it is time for a change back to common sense in the way we get governed. This present administration has ignored our constitution, increased the national debt to a point that even the annual budget amount will not cover the interest on the debt, caused the business climate to stagnate because of all the uncertainty that businesses might have to deal with and helped to double the cost of gasoline. Before becoming president, Mr. Obama said he wanted $5 gas.
President Obama’s foreign policies are another big area that doesn’t make sense, his constant apologizing for our country. Terrorists have probably been encouraged by his actions. It is time to elect a leader that knows business and how to create jobs and other leaders that will not become a rubber stamp for whatever their party puts forward. Let’s allow Amy Klobuchar to remain home and be your friendly neighbor.
