Don't give incumbents another chance in office

newsroom@islandpacket.comMay 30, 2014 

Another Memorial Day and we have put out the flag, gone to parades, heard speeches and generally feel pretty good about ourselves.

We have given multi-millions of dollars to our office seekers but I can't remember one talking about our veterans waiting three or four months to get an appointment at a VA hospital while wait lists were being cooked.

We spend countless dollars waging war and can't find the money to take care of our returning solders. Yet we go to the polls and vote to return the same hypocrites to office time and time again. Ask yourself, who is to blame?
