Government splurge

Published: Sunday, Aug. 31, 2014 5:30 a.m. CDT

To the Editor:

When is this government going to be for the people and by the people as it states in the U.S. Constitution?

Let the people vote by ballot as it should be concerning term limits. Also, let businesses operate without interference and government controlling owners’ decisions on operations and wages.

Increasing the minimum wage will only increase inflation and, of course, increase taxes, so the government can splurge at a greater extent.
