Letter: I hope our government spends income tax money wisely

ENID, Okla. — During President Obama’s first term, he hired 105 new federal employees every day during the first four-year period. These employees are his idea of job creation.

These people are again paid half more than the private sector, get a months vacation, sick leave, lifetime health benefits, days off for any or all holidays. They will be diapered for the rest of their lives.

U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn has learned too many federal employee supervisors are unconcerned whether they show up or not.

U.S. Government is a poor example of what this country should be.

After Obama was told that our embassy in Benghazi was being attacked, he got on Air Force One and flew to Las Vegas for a campaign speech.

We gave Egypt $1.5 billion, plus a few more million dollars, plus 10 F-16 bombers, plus 200 armored tanks.

Today, terrorists detonated the Boston Marathon. I hope our authorities don’t racially profile any Arab types on their search for the perpetrators.

Today is federal income tax due date. I hope our federal government spends at least some of it wisely.
