Letter to the Editor

Muddying the waters

Monday, July 31, 2017

Dear Editor,

Concerning a recent Opinion article entitled Smith Needs 'Nebraska Common Sense," the article was worthy of the Gazette's trash bin, while the author was truly guilty, albeit however innocent, of idiotic, silly chattering about Adrian Smith and "poll-parroting" the "fake news" of the Democratic Party and its faithful trumpeters, the Media, who constantly spin or twist the news to fit their own "play book."

For example, the author "regurgitates" the Democrats by quoting the "independent" Congressional Budget Office who had not yet scored the House Repeal and Replace Act, as if this organization that has a very poor record of being right.

Nonetheless, we should wait for this "God-almighty office" to Let them score the bill. Let us continue with the author's "poll-parroting" the Democratic use of "fake news" to twist or "spin" the facts, especially that the Republicans, like Adrian Smith, are going to "cut" Medicaid.

Au Contraire, On the Contrary, the Repeal and Replace Bill, if the author would use common sense and check the actual facts, rather than cut Medicaid, it would increase Medicaid, "twice the rate of inflation" for a number of years and then fall back to merely the rate of inflation.

Alas! Alas! and Alas! again, how the Democrats, their worshipping Media, and their hair-brained copycats love to "muddy the waters."
