LETTER: Republicans to blame for deficit

Thursday, March 11, 2010 | 4:16 p.m. CST

Mr. Blaine Leutkemeyer recently mailed a flier to me decrying the budget deficit. I returned the flier to him, with the following statement: "Bill Clinton and the Democrats left you Republicans with a budget surplus. What did you do with it?" In the area asking for my top priorities and issues I wrote: "Replace you with a Democrat."
