The same talking points


On Jan. 1, 2013 our Congress passed a bill to deal with tax increases. The Daily News article and the article by Congressman Benisek on Jan. 2 was as confusing as could be. The articles were the same talking points that have been spewed out of Washington and the evening news ad nauseam.

How about including some real information in your news articles? For one thing, what was the number of the Senate/House Resolution?

Another item that should have been included was the “earmarks” or “pork” that went along with that bill.

Let the readers know how much money in that bill was for the algae farmers, NASCAR, Hollywood, Hurricane Sandy, etc. That would be news.

It would be nice to have a good informational news report in our Daily News on the actual bill that was passed. All parts of it.
