Finally, a few of them stepped up and acted like Americans

To the Editor:
Cumberland Times-News

— This is a letter responding to “Senators could have stepped up, but backed down like cowards,” (April 25 Times-News).

The letter stated 92 percent of Americans and 74 percent of National Rifle Association members were ignored.

This was some more propaganda to try and sway other people to believe a majority was for the bill. This was far from the truth, but typical for truth smearing Democrats.

I am thrilled of the outcome, finally a few Democrats acted like Americans and I am proud of them. If only they had done some thinking on the stimulus package and Obamacare.

But, I will take a small victory for now and pray for more in the future.

The writer stated she was ashamed of Congress. I have been ashamed to be an American ever since the 2008 election and double ashamed since the 2012 election.

Maryland is in the toilet ( Liberal Democrat dominated) and America is closely following. Maryland is now the worst in the Union.

I was born and raised here and would love to leave, but go where, when the entire country is now being jerked around by liberal Democrats.

Look at the results of this year’s Maryland legislature: rain tax, raise gas tax, double the flush tax, in state tuition for illegals, licenses for illegals, gun control, early release of criminals and gay marriage.

Like I said, absolutely ashamed of this state. I plead with all Democrats and Republicans in Congress to oppose anything Obama and his group comes up with. We must fight to the very end.
