See where House, Senate, presidential fingers point

January 08, 2013 12:00 am

I am writing this short letter in response to Bill Masterson Jr.'s Jan. 3 column about simple tax reform. Masterson mentions finger-pointing by the "president and Congress."

Like most Americans, I too watched the finger-pointing and I noticed he failed to include the U.S. Senate pointing fingers directly at the Republican-controlled House where all problems lie. We the people can only vote for one House person, and of course my representative happens to be Pete Visclosky.

My question to you is, are you aware of Pete's direction of finger-pointing?
