Reader's View: Return check if concerned about the deficit

So, do your part, Wisconsinites, turn those checks back where they came from and get in line at food shelves with thousands of your neighbors.

To the people of Northwestern Wisconsin: Tom Tiffany (Republican, 7th District House of Representatives) and Ron Johnson (Republican, U.S. Senate) have done all they could. It is now up to you to return your rescue checks to the U.S. Treasury. Clearly, it is Tiffany’s and Johnson’s priority that you keep your bootstraps clean and do not lose your motivation to work.

There is sudden concern for the deficit that was not an issue during the last presidential administration. “The deficit growth under Trump has been historic,” read a Jan. 14 ProPublica headline.

So, do your part, Wisconsinites, turn those checks back where they came from and get in line at food shelves with thousands of your neighbors. Tiffany and Johnson have done what they see as their job, now you do yours — and don’t forget their partisan “loyalty” in 2022.

(Those of you without “bootstraps,” it’s tough luck, as usual).
