Disgust for Roskam, Hultgren

To the Editor:

Shame on you, Congressmen Peter Roskam and Randy Hultgren, for cutting $40 billion from food stamps for senior citizens and veterans.

Why do these two congressmen and the other 215 Republicans who voted for this bill hate the poor, elderly and veterans? They send these veterans to fight our wars, but they can’t give them a helping hand when they need it.

I am so disgusted with these two congressmen voting against the poor, elderly and veterans, while Roskam is accused of getting free trips paid for by the government of a foreign country.

I guess that’s OK for him. Why don’t the people in his district ask for his expense reports just to see how well he eats while on our dime. Shame! Shame! Shame!
