Winging it with the GOP

September 26, 2009

Re "Planes to nowhere?" Sept. 19

This news story is priceless. Here we have a very small town, Ely, Nev., receiving massive federal government subsidies to sustain airline services.

Instead of eliminating this boondoggle, Congress has decided to increase this intrusion into the free market.

I figured that the beneficiaries of such a program must have been Democrats, but imagine my shock and surprise when I did some research and discovered that White Pine County, where Ely is located, voted nearly 2 to 1 for John McCain in last year's election. Need I say more?
