Letter: U.S. falling behind China because of congressional inaction

February 11, 2013 

Falling behind

I see by the Conservative Daily report that China will surpass us in a few years because of this administration's deliberate foot dragging and wasting our resources.

It appears Congress (mainly the Senate) won't act as part of a stalling plan. I didn't know Americans in Congress would experiment with the economy in ways to hurt the people. George Soros' writing reveals he can bet against us and make money.

Despite promises to allow the pipeline from Canada to operate, Obama has again stalled the project. With the cooperation of Environmental Protection Agency and other government demands on industry by excess regulations, we may be cleaner than anyone in the world but our poor are suffering.

I wonder if Sen. Harry Reid and other millionaires in Congress care? A little ethics is superior to heavy-handed control.
