Time to cut what should have been cut long ago

To the Editor:

— I have a great idea for all these budget cuts the government is doing to the working class.

First maybe they should cut some of the salaries that the people get in Washington.

Also, why not start by cutting out giving all the free money to people that are on government assistance? I mean ones that have been on assistance for generations after generations.

The system was suppose to help you get on your feet, not to live on it forever. Some people in households get two and three checks for doing nothing.

Now I do agree there are some people who need help and I have no problem with that.

But when you have three and four children just to get more money, that is something that should be stopped.

The working class can't support everyone. If the government is going to keep giving out checks, then let people earn them.

Why should the middle class suffer from budget cuts and try to make ends meet?

We need to cut spending on things that should have been done long ago.

Wake up and do something to help the working class that keeps America going.
