Letter to the editor | Thompson should stand up

October 4, 2013 

I thank the CDT for reporting on the five Pennsylvania Republicans who are breaking with the tea party and trying to end this ridiculous government shutdown.

But what about Rep. Glenn Thompson? Why is he not at the vanguard of this effort?

Does Thompson actually think these antics are good for our country? And is he planning on playing roulette with our country’s credit rating on Oct. 17 as well?

There are too many serious problems facing our country right now. We cannot afford to have congressional representatives who refuse to put the best interests of our country ahead of their destructive ideological agenda.
