NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
Remember that adage, “If it works, don’t fix it?”
Privatization of the liquor business makes absolutely no common sense. Once again, the Republicans want to fix a sound system that doesn’t need to be fixed.
Somehow they will line their pockets with “hush money,” lobbyists and other groups attempt to influence legislators to pass laws in favor of such groups. “Hush money” is not transparent and almost impossible to prove.
Why else would Republicans sway legislators in an already sound system? This sound system provides good-paying jobs for its employees and provides a much-needed tax base for other government programs.
These employees would become jobless (poor) while the already wealthy become more wealthy, therefore eliminating another middle-class vocation.
The final outcome, I believe, is eliminating the middle class, increasing the poor class. One is either wealthy or poor.
The Republicans are up to their ears in illogical behavior. No longer is there a move in Pennsylvania to help the jobless find employment. Open Sundays, what a great, long-overdue idea. Another case in point.
