Remembering where federal dollars come from [Letter]

July 14, 2014

After 30 years in Washington it's time for Sen. Barbara Mikulski to go ("Obama requests $3.7 billion to address influx of immigrant children," July 8).

It appears she has forgotten whose money she is spending. Last week she appeared on local TV bragging about the federal dollars she got to upgrade several fire stations and saying how Maryland taxpayers won't have to pay for these upgrades.

Has she forgotten that Marylanders pay federal taxes?
