To the Editor:

Candidate Hillary Clinton (HC) has repeatedly pledged no new taxes for families making less than $250,000. However, additional revenue is needed to offset expenses for the long-delayed improvements to the nation's infrastructure, for additional job creation and student debt reduction. Therefore, several tax loopholes must be closed and the rich will likely see a tax increase.

In the 1930s, President Franklin D. Roosevelt prodded Henry Ford and other Republican corporate masters to build and modify plant facilities for the purpose of manufacture long before America was forced into World War II. But, whereas FDR had a solid majority of Democrats in his Congress, President Hillary must depend on the wisdom of good people to do what is right for America in this election.

Republican leadership formed a pact in January 2008 to oppose anything and everything put forth by a Democrat president. John Thune and Kristi Noem joined these obfuscating slackers, obstructing the president on everything. Why not bring them home where they can enjoy their life-long Congressional financial perks? Let's send former naval officer Jay Williams and former science teacher Paula Hawks. They're both known as vigorous doers. They will always be on your side.
