To the Editor:

I wish to thank Representative Bill Post for his article of April 28th.  He presented a lesson on how to miss the point.  Even though the bills he sponsored help low income families are admirable, would it not be helpful to build up our economy?  Why has Mr. Post not worked to help working people earn a living wage instead of giving a public handout? Or, as Ronald Reagan said, “There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination, and wonder.”

Mr. Post has forgotten the lessons of Ronald Reagan. Those lessons were to do your job and build consensus to pass legislation. Any member of the legislature can submit legislation, but true leadership of a representative is working to build consensus to get it passed. Instead Mr. Post spends his time blaming others. Mr. Post should be mindful that 2018 is not that far away instead of sitting on his incumbency and making excuses.
