Letters-to-the-editor today includes a Columbia letter writer’s | “Congress refuses to govern”

Amen to that, Mr. Tillet … and thank you for writing that letter-to-the-editor.

Lots of other letters in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster deal with other continuing societal issues: senior citizens contending with fixed incomes and rising taxes; lack of transparency in “elected public servants”; failing infrastructure; condemnation of teacher pay increases and many more ills.

Again, we’re reminded of the novel, 2030: The real story of what happened in America, in which, America is wrestling with “a ballooning national debt and America’s slippage as a nation able to take care of its own.”

And this narrative: “… millions of baby boomers, with a big natural predator picked off, were sucking dry benefits and resources that were never meant to hold them into their eighties and beyond. Young people around the country simmered with resentment toward ‘the olds’ and anger at the treadmill they could never get off of just to maintain their parents’ entitlement programs.”

From today’s LNP – Always Lancaster, too:
