To the editor: Once again, I am dismayed by what is taking place in our country. OUR country. The country of the people that was founded almost 250 years ago because were under the yoke of tyranny, despotism and bad government. A government that cared little for its own people and used its people for its own, and their king’s, personal gain and political power.

I see our elected political leaders, for the most part, and in both parties, using their position as our representatives, our paid public servants, for their own personal and political gain. When I see members of both houses of Congress, who make an average salary of $174,000 per year, not including magnificent health care, lifetime pensions, junkets and perks, offer us a yearly pandemic relief of $600, I am infuriated. Yet these same people, who supposedly work for us, have leveraged their position into earning them millions through side deals and corruption. Their own personal gain.
