Narcissism


To the Editor:
Letter writer Greg Johnson misdiagnoses Congressman Glenn "GT"
Thompson's vote to break the sequester spending cuts on the backs of
veterans as a bad case of narcissism. Instead, we should look to a
more common affliction infecting our rulers: greed. The Beltway
Bandits occupying the six wealthiest counties in our country, the
Super Zips of DC, northern Virginia and Maryland, pay handsomely in
campaign donations and other favors to keep the government spigot
open. And now that the Tea Party has been bludgeoned by GOP leaders:
John Boehner and Paul Ryan, the path has been cleared for a grand
bargain between LaRaza and the Cheap Labor Lobby. No doubt
Thompson's No-Labels Caucus will be at the forefront of
comprehensive immigration reform, which like Obamacare will drag
down the job market for citizens at a time of record low labor force
participation, increase the size and scope of government at a time
of trillion dollar debts, and curtail our liberties. If there is any
hope for what ails our Republic, it lies in the proles.
