Step up for jobless

Dear Editor:

Congress, get off your butt and do something for the 7.9 percent unemployed! Yes, the debt will go up. But who cares, if you are out of work?

Hey, Mr. President, if Congress won’t act, you should create a “presidential stimulus” to put our good, honest citizens to work – now!

The Republicans are a paper tiger. They’ll agree to raising the debt ceiling every time it is needed. Why? Because if they don’t, they won’t get paid. What a bunch of phonies.

Also, leave Hagel alone. He’s a really good Republican American.
