Reader's view: Cravaack has benefited from the government he condemns

To all who think U.S. Rep. Chip Cravaack is a reasonable man, please listen. At his town hall meeting in Deer River, Minn., he suggested government is the problem. But he has lived for most of his life, directly or indirectly, off of that same government. He suggested taxes are too high. Of course he would suggest that. As a result of his career in the military and in the airlines (directly and indirectly supported massively by guess who?), plus his current job in government, he makes a healthy income. How much? Cravaack could let us know. He is comparatively rich.

He glibly said to me at the town hall he wasn't concerned how we got to our current debt situation; he just wanted to solve it. Well, I'm concerned about how we got here. Cravaack and his party did it!
