Politicians: Vague promises and double-talk

August 17, 2011

Here's a request from a frustrated voter to all public servants: Will you please be specific?

I'm supposed to make informed decisions based on the information public officials provide. But where is that data?

What's the address of the Medicare facility they intend to close? The department in the Pentagon where the ax will fall? The name of the government contractor whose contract will end, and the state where his business is located?

Tell us exactly what should be stopped and where.

I am disappointed in my fellow voters for swallowing the tripe coming from politicians. Uncle Sam is talking gibberish and people are believing it without checking the facts.

John Holter, Baltimore
