The turncoat Don Young

  • Comments

To the editor: Sadly, I must confess that I have voted for Don Young through the years, and he has disappointed Alaskans many times. This time it is unforgivable.

He is a traitor to all Alaskans and definitely a traitor to our great nation. He made it possible for us to be further indebted. This indebtedness is a terrible burden on our children and their children. I do not believe they will ever have a country that is not spending less than our national income.

I am grateful that we have Kelly Tshibaka stepping up to the plate to represent us in the Senate. We need someone who cares about us individually as well as us Alaskans as a whole.

Join with me and get Don Young out of Washington, DC. He has joined the swamp. He and 12 other turncoat representatives made it possible to pass a bill that is wasteful spending. How sad can it get in Washington? It’s not looking good. Join with me in sending Don Young back to the Bush to think about what he has done.
