Your daily Letter to the Editor — May 6, 2013
Reading the news story “Army says no to more tanks, but Congress insists” April 29 annoyed me more than Dan Casey!
The Army does not need or want any more Abrams tanks, yet Congress, in the midst of sequestration, is requiring that almost half a billion dollars be spent to build a 70-ton paperweight.
These tanks will most likely be put into storage and rust until bid upon by a scrap metals firm.
Meanwhile, services that the public enjoys or needs are eliminated so one party can blame the other, in hope that the public will demand higher taxes so their wanted programs and services will return. Disgusting.
Note from Dan: I was also annoyed by that story. But I’m curious as to how Mr. Nylander knows he was more annoyed by it than I was.
