Letter: Media should focus on key issues in campaign, not the soap opera
Placeholder Image

Please stop the soap opera; write about the issues, please. We have a responsibility to the children and to the children to come.

We are a nation that is morally and financial broke. The national debt is $19 trillion and increasing every second. The GDP is 1 trillion less than our national debt. To better explain that would be the same as taking home $4,000 per month and your bills are $6,000 per month; how long do think it would take before you are out on the street? Each citizen owes $60,000 and each taxpayer owes $164,000 to pay off the debt.

Ninety-five million Americans are out of the labor force, the lowest labor participation rate since the 1970s. It’s the worst economic recovery since the 1940s and the lowest homeownership rate in 51 years. Obamacare has collapsed, leaving millions of Americans who were suppose to keep their doctor and keep their plan losing both. Millions of young Americans who are now contributing to Social Security will never see one dime unless we do something now!

The next president will likely nominate at least four new Supreme Court justices. Who Hillary Clinton’s are, she will not say. Donald Trump has detailed his candidates.

The issues that really matter are not this soap opera. It really fascinates me The Times paints Mr. Trump like the lowlife of the earth and Mrs. Clinton with a halo and wings. Really, I am 61 years old and I fully recall the impeachment proceeding of Bill Clinton. Does The Times really believe seven women were lying about being sexually abused? And does The Times really believe your self-proclaimed saint knew nothing about it?

Stop the soap opera and be a news network, something I have not seen since in a long time.
