Dear Editor,

Congress is grappling with spending cuts, yet tens of millions of tax dollars are wasted on a relatively unknown Interior Department program that rounds up thousands of wild horses from the West every year.

Now a recent Tube video shows a helicopter heartlessly stampeding an elder wild horse who collapses from exhaustion during a government roundup currently underway in Nevada.

The federal government already warehouses more wild horses in holding pens and pastures (40,000+) than are left free in the wild, yet the roundups continue. Our tax dollars paid for this wasteful federal program to the tune of $67 million last year.

The cost is also high for America’s mustangs, who are protected as part of our national heritage, but are being terrorized and driven off our public lands to make room for commercial livestock grazing.

It’s time for taxpayers to speak up against this inhumanity and fiscal insanity. To learn more, please visit www.StopTheRoundups.com.

Dear Editor,

This letter is just a quick thank you letter to the President for health care reform which has allowed me to go back to the doctor again.

Thank you President Obama for allowing my parents to put me on their care plan in January while I continue to establish myself in the world.

Thank you President Obama for not allowing insurance companies to discriminate against me for being injured or sick in the past.

Thank you President Obama for also not allowing insurance companies to abandon me when I need help and care the most.

Thank you President Obama for giving me the peace of mind that I haven’t had in two years. I will not be helpless or a burden to society if I get sick or have a bad accident. It is all thanks to you.
