Re: "Liberals: How about an apology for failures?" (letter, 5-6).
Don't blame liberals for trying to fix an economic mess conservatives caused. Most economists contend the problem with the stimulus was that it wasn't big enough.
Franklin Roosevelt and the Democrats got us out of the Depression by enacting big projects like electrifying the country, which set the stage for manufacturing jobs creating devices that made life easier. Later, huge highway projects moved commerce. Obama was stopped of all such efforts by Republicans.
Obamacare is a life-saver to millions. If we didn't spend 43 cents of every tax dollar on defense, we could easily provide health care for all. It's sad that the richest country can't when 32 of 33 developing countries have universal health care.
Never miss a local story.
And how about that successful liberal city, Seattle?
