Letter - Cuts not offered by governor or legislators
To the editor:
Gov. Bob Holden and the legislators in Jefferson City are up to their old tricks again. The Jan. 25 editorial in the Southeast Missourian was right on target.
As of this date, I have not read where even one of our state legislators has called for a tax reduction, a reduction in red tape or a reduction in the state bureaucracy. Tax and spend is the order of the day.
Here is an observation on politicians by Daniel Webster many years ago: "Now is the time that men work quietly in the fields, and women weep softly in the kitchen; the legislature is in session, and no man's property is safe." How appropriate for the Missouri executive and legislative class of 2002.
