Debt Queen?

Paul Richard’s letter (July 8) is full of rhetoric but completely devoid of any facts. This is not surprising because he really doesn’t have any evidence to back up his claim that Congresswoman Susan Davis is a so-called debt queen.

The reality is that when President Bush and the Republicans were doubling our national debt, mostly with tax cuts for the rich, Davis was fighting them all the way. She opposed the Bush economic policies that squandered a budget surplus in 2001 and brought our economy on the verge of another Great Depression.

Davis has championed pay-as-you-go spending rules for Congress and supported creating the current debt commission to find ways of reducing our national debt. It is quite a stretch for Mr. Richard to pin our current economic crisis on Davis.

I loved this article, I am a South Parker and I am glad to see that my neighborhood is becoming popular. We have great shops and restaurats. I leave a block a way form the walkabout and I enjoy the sense of community here. Rebecca's Cafe is the best spot to enjoy live music and great cofee. Mazzara's restaurant is probably the best Italian food I have ever had. So yeay for South Park and this article!

Why, because there is a real need for debate in San Diego and except for the Reader's online version; debate is nowhere to be found!

Our traditional sources for "NEWS" are now little more than Big Business and or City boosters; the effect of which is, that:

The City of San Diego is now being "Run", not by the People, but "For" the People...
