Supports Wiedenhoeft

To the Editor: On Tuesday, August 5, 2014, the Primary Election is being held.
Jul 8, 2014

As residents of Michigan’s 89th District, which is in the Top 3 of Conservative areas in Michigan, we need to look at our choices on the Republican Ticket.

The incumbent, Amanda Price has voted for the following:

Common Core

Medicaid expansion (Obama Care)

The most recent $200 million Detroit bailout

Minimum wage increase

None of these are Conservative values, but liberal ideals that our incumbent representative feels the need to follow the progressives on.  We need to ask ourselves, “Are we being represented” or are we being dictated to by a Progressive Liberal.

That is why I am proud to support Matt Wiedenhoeft as my Conservative Choice to bring back a true Representative of the People of the 89th District.

— Jeff Schwander, Grand Haven

three of the four mentioned are necessary for the State to survive.

Vast Right Wing...

Really! We needed to spend money on Common Core, Another bailout of Detroit, ObamaCare and putting more people out of work for Michigan to survive??

Common core that may be OK but the publishers and editors of it are messing it up. Medicaid expansion that looks subjective. Taxpayers subsidize billions every year to 3rd world countries that despise the USA, but no one complains about that. Detroit bailout 200 million for that but 3 billion for corrections, about 5 cups in a bucket. Minimum wage increase not sure on that one, but sure on CEO's average pay went up five thousand percent in past 25 years and keeps rising. Amanda Price isn't the problem. These 4 issues aren't enough to unseat her. Its the power brokers along with the speaker of the house that wants her to remain in. And the PAC committees will funnel $200,000 or more to keep her. But I'll vote for Wiedenhoeft anyway just because the PAC committees and lots of liquid cash will support Price. Your problem is Farm Bureau, Right to Life, Liqueur lobby's, school administrator lobbys - make it easy just follow the money - look at the campaign disclosure data of 2010 and then you'll find your problem. They decide who gets in office - not the voters. The speaker of the house makes phone calls to the PAC's and they are his "yes men"
