I am very disappointed that The Pilot would put a letter in the paper that obviously is in error!
The letter by Ron VanHoover, “Take the Litmus Test” (Oct. 28), is inaccurate in many areas. His “litmus test” is totally ridiculous, but I will point out only his number (5) comment.
He claims “the GM plant was closed before Obama took office.” Please read Wikipedia Web page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
The plant was largely idled in December 2008, and ceased all remaining production April 2009. At a ceremony on Dec. 23, 2008, photos were taken showing the employees with a banner reading “Last Vehicle Off the Janesville Line.”
The last vehicle was sold in a raffle benefiting the United Way. The photo can be seen on the Wikipedia site. There were 57 production employees who continued work until April 2009.
Why would Paul Ryan, who has lived in Janesville all his life, say anything untrue about this?
And I will add, Romney does not propose to cut taxes for millionaires. What an unfounded remark! Should Obama be re-elected, the middle class will find itself mired in new taxes, thanks to Obamacare.
Lastly, no comparison can be made to the money raised by the president.
Remember, he flew to Vegas for a fundraiser the day after the murders in Benghazi. Talk about millionaires?
He flies back and forth to Hollywood for additional funds, and it is on Air Force One (America’s plane, our money, at his disposal).
