Letter: Watch out for GOP


Enid News & Eagle

ENID, Okla. — Read in The Oklahoman Sunday Jan. 6, 2013, that your Gov. Mary Fallin is heading to Washington, D.C., for discussions with the president and Congress regarding federal funding to state governments. Gov. Fallin states that governors do not wish to have their resources taken away.

Yet, at the same time, your Gov. Fallin is wanting to decrease state of Oklahoma tax revenues by reducing income tax rates for the high wage earners in the state of Oklahoma. Is that behavior not double-dealing?

Watch out, education in Oklahoma, as the Republicans will hit your budget allocations — just like they have been doing in the past!
