Sound Off, Sept. 26

Sound Off highlights anonymous, brief takes on the news offered via telephone by Daily News readers.

I am deeply appalled at the Republican senator from North Carolina who just voted against the veterans’ jobs bill. I am appalled at that Republican senator who just voted against the jobs bill. He is not working for the people who sent him to Washington, D.C. He is working for Grover Norquist and the right-wing Republican Party. Shame on him.

If you are a Christian and you love America, you must see the movie “The Last Ounce of Courage.” You need to.

I am not concerned about whether I am better off four years ago than I am now. I am concerned about what is going to happen in the very near future with the Republicans creating this fiscal cliff crisis and not even working until after the election. That’s what I am concerned about, what is going on right now. They are holding up the economy with the inability to do any work in Washington or the inability to do any work in Raleigh. We need someone to take the country forward, forward. Where are the job creators? They’ve already had tax cuts. They’re not making any jobs with the tax cuts they already got. We’re watching right now, not four years ago.

I was really glad that I purchased the Washington Daily News for Thursday, Sept. 20. While I was sitting down, I read the Steve and Cokie Roberts comments and it really came in handy while I was in the outhouse.
