Seattle Times letters to the editor

Years of economic decline

What we deserve

At the end of 2008, Americans are just beginning to see and feel the results of years of very bad economic policies that began with the election of former President Ronald Reagan and the so-called Republican Revolution.

America will learn the hard way that government should not be run as a business. If governments are run like corporations, who is left to protect the interests of the people?

The sad thing is, all that is happening with the economy was totally preventable. There were many voices warning the public but they were ignored by the public and the media just as the voices warning the country about going to Iraq.

— George Whitaker, Bellevue
