As we have seen over and over again in videos that show Sharron Angle (R-NV) saying that she wants to end Social Security and Medicare, it turns out that this has been a passion of hers going back to as early as 1993.
In an angry letter that Sharron Angle wrote to Senator Reid (D-NV) in 1993, she really showed her dislike for Social Security, Health Care, the Endowment for the Arts, Bill Clinton and Senator Reid.
She goes after former President Clinton’s tax increases on the rich, which by the way created 23 million jobs. She said that it would add $1 Trillion in debt (Clinton left a surplus and a balanced budget) and she goes after the Entitlement programs.
The following is Sharron Angle’s ANGRY letter to Senator Reid, and she sure has a lot to say:
“I and the majority of my fellow Nevadans are sickened by the passage of the recent huge tax increase bill. With YOUR help the quality of life in America has taken another step into the pit of economic collapse. Clinton’s mother-of-all tax packages is the world’s biggest tax increase ever. It increases government spending by $300 billion, increases the national debt by $1 trillion, it is retroactive to January 1, and probably the most offensive, it schedules 80 percent of the promised spending cuts to take place after the next Presidential election. What a joke, and not a very funny one at that!
“Under your new bill, I and the rest of us (including my children and yours) will work from January 1 until July 31 to cover our tax liability. How much more can you suck out of the taxpayers before everything collapses? It is evident that you have caved in with our President and the rest of those tax-and-spenders in Washington that voted for this disgrace.
“The answer to this mess is clear. STOP FUNDING THE WASTEFUL SOCIAL AND ENTITLEMENT PROGRAMS. MAKE THE DIFFICULT CHOICES THAT WILL KEEP OUR COUNTRY STRONG. THAT’S WHAT YOU WERE ELECTED TO DO! I beg you not to support taxpayer funded national health care which is the next hit we are in line for. I also request that you end the spending (of) tax dollars to support pornography and perversion through continuing grants from the National Endowment for the Arts.
“In closing, I want to reaffirm my total dissatisfaction with your support for the tax bill. I will be expressing my dissatisfaction in the voting booth in the next election.
“Please take the following words of Professor Alexander Tyler to heart. He said, ‘A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves a largess from the treasury. From that moment on, the majority will always vote for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy.’ …
“I hope you receive thousands of letters like mine. Maybe then you will understand the impact of your tax bill on America, and the outrage of its citizens.”
Sharron Angle’s DC handlers say that she has softened her views on Social Security and Medicare since we saw her say that she wants to end both programs just a few months ago. As you can read, her views have been the same for at least the past 17 years.
