Letters: How can Congress take a vacation now?

21August 2020

How can the people we elected to Congress just take three weeks off, during one of the most dire times in our countries history? There is huge unemployment, and people, through no fault of their own, are left with no policies in place to help them. Our politicians again stiffed us.

There are many families who are on the cusp of losing everything and our cold-hearted representatives take a vacation instead of staying to finish their work to help our country’s citizens survive this pandemic.

These people live in a different world than the rest of us. They say: “We are in this together,” but I havent seen any of them take a cut in pay, lose medical coverage or have to file for unemployment benefits like the rest of us are doing. All they do is argue with each other while we the people sink further into the depths.

Why do you think they all come out millionaires after even one term in office? This was a time for them to show that they stand with the American people and instead they take a vacation. It doesn’t matter whether you are Democrat or Republican, both parties don’t care about the average citizen, they care about taking care of themselves and big business.

All we need to do is to vote every last one of them out of office. Remember who you vote for and why you vote for them. They are our employees, not the other way around. They were voted in and they can be voted out.

They are the same here

The letter writer from Lindstrom complains that the “mainstream media” continue to treat absentee and mail-in ballots as if they were the same. Well, in Minnesota they are the same.

The writer says that an absentee ballot requires, among other things, “a good reason for not being able to go to the polls.” That is not true, no reason is required in Minnesota to obtain a mail-in/absentee ballot. The writer goes on to say that mail-in ballots are sent to all registered voters. Again not true, at least not in Minnesota.
